Students seeing calendar items from past course

Students are reporting to me that they are seeing assignments on their calendar for classes of previous semesters, that they no longer have access to. What is happening and how do I fix it?

Even though students may not have access to a course anymore, it still exists within the Angel system. A possible cause for this could be that a faculty member accidentally put in the wrong dates, or changed the dates when they were going to copy the course for another semester. Either way, to fix the problem, the faculty member will need to go in and delete the events from the calendar for students to stop seeing them. This shouldn't be an issue as the course is over and the only person who has access to it as the faculty member themselves.
