Massachusetts College Starts Flying US Flag Again

The Massachusetts college that drew nationwide criticism when it stopped flying the U.S. flag on campus following the presidential election says Old Glory is back up.

Hampshire College in Amherst returned the flag to full staff on Friday.

The flag was lowered to half-staff after the Nov. 8 election. The flag was found burned on Veterans Day and the college decided to take down all campus flags on Nov. 18.

The decision drew widespread condemnation and a protest by veterans groups and their supporters outside campus.
