“a 13-minute silent sit-in”
These protests are not going to accomplish anything. The school made these changes for the sake of survival.

Hundreds protest college’s proposal to drop humanities for more practical majors
Hundreds protested at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point campus Wednesday over a proposed realignment to the school’s majors — dropping the humanities for an emphasis on more practical courses to lead students to sustainable futures.
University officials have proposed cutting 13 majors, mainly in social studies and the humanities — programs with lower enrollment, the school said.
The 13 programs that could be eliminated are American studies, art, English, French, geography, geoscience, German, history, music literature, philosophy, political science, sociology and Spanish.
UW-Stevens Point students marched to Old Main, the campus's main admin. building, to stage a 13-minute silent sit-in to protest proposed cuts to 13 majors. Check back later for full gallery/story. #uwsp #saveourmajors #wearepointhumanities pic.twitter.com/ZjRFiam9qH
