In a not all too unfamiliar scene the wide sidewalk on the 2300 block of 6th street on the campus of Howard University houses the revolutionary spirit of disgruntled students seeking change. The concerns of the student body are wide, ranging from financial aid and registration topics, to updated facilities and increased hours, to the demand for staff resignations and new hiring.
The issues aren’t all that new, and several have a familiar ring to them. Student’s at the Howard took similar issues to the steps, hallways, and rooftop of the A-building at least twice previously, in 1989 and 1996.
Are the students of our university being properly served, and if not what are the reasons and what do we do about it?
Below you will find the list of demands made to the University by the student leadership. A response posted in the school paper is required by Wednesday September 9, to forego further demonstrations.
