Frankly, I'm still not 'worried' about Ronnie. The overt hostility to everyone and everything, plus a demonstrated capacity for random, unpredictable violence? Nope, no need for that in the dorm. And it's not just Micheal's call to make, either, in terms of reconciliation. Ronnie needs a hard-core intervention, and he needs to be away from the group setting while it's going on.
1: If Micheal tells anyone what happened, then the school assumes full liability for anything Ronnie does in the future. All of it. If he is permitted to stay and he punches someone else (maybe next time while they're near a staircase?) or commits any other act of violence, a lawyer would take one look at this prior incident and say, "My client will just take the school's alumni endowment fund as compensation, thanks."
2: If Micheal does NOT tell anyone else who hit him, then... frankly, he's taking on responsibility for subsequent mishaps. Again, if Ronnie decks someone else, is Micheal gonna have the guts to go up to that person and say, "Hey, just wanted you to know, I could've prevented that, but I was too busy being forgiving"?
Ronnie needs to go. Maybe he can come back, but right now, he needs to be gone.
