Walkout turns into loud protest over Board of Trustee’s decision regarding winter intersession.
The Board of Trustees unanimously voted to approve a calendar without a winter intersession, despite being met with strong opposition from protestors sporting winter attire who were kept locked out of the meeting by campus police. Protestors said police refused to let them in saying the room was filled to capacity. However, the board meeting which was held in the Creveling Lounge, had seats available throughout the evening.
The stage was set once again at the Aug. 29 Board of Trustees meeting for another clash between protesters and the board; protesters, faculty, students, journalists, and what looked like spectators made up the audience in the packed room.
