University budget cuts are a fact of life these days, but it hasn't stopped students from protesting them. A round-up of highlights:
Twenty-five people at the University of Minnesota attended a protest organized by the Socialist Alternative group Wednesday. Holding signs that read, "Education is a Right" and "Bail out Universities, not Wall Street," the activists objected to a possible tuition hike.
At the University of Memphis, a number of students tried to get a protest together, but confusion reigned. "I don't know what this is or who is orchestrating it at all," said the school's student regent to the Tennessee Board of Regents about a proposed walkout today. (Not a good sign.) The students have taken issue with the state's proposal to lift a tuition cap, which had allowed for every credit hour taken after the first 12 to be free.
