Need Advice-Got offer from BB for SA but how do I let them know I have been suspended in the past?

Long Story Short- I was suspended for one semester and I will be returning in the spring. The suspension was disciplinary and due to political factors I was made an example to set a precedent in the future. I go to a top 10 school and have excellent work experience at BBs. I just crushed my most recent superday and received an SA offer immediately but the suspension situation never came up. How should I go about letting them know the situation? Should I talk to HR or the people who interviewed me? Many of my interviewers for the superday have reached out to me personally to congradulate me, which I think is a good sign that they liked me very much. Side note- The suspension will have a 2 word note on my transcript under last semester, that is barely noticeable if you just glance at it. Any advice on how to proceed?

congrats on the offer ... I think you should reach out one of the interviewers who reached out to congratulate you, let them know, and ask if you need to take any further steps to remain transparent.

I don't think I'd mention it unless asked. Especially since they won't consider the circumstances behind the suspension- just the idea that you were suspended which they might think shows bad judgment. Are you graduating at the same time? If not, then they'll definitely know and you might want to get out in front of it.
