“A Department of Public Safety officer announced the suspensions via letters handed to students”
It’s amazing that these students are suffering real consequences for this. It’s so rare.

Syracuse U. suspends over 30 students for occupation of administrative offices
Syracuse University put over 30 students on “interim suspension” early Tuesday morning due to their occupation of an administrative building.
The students, representing #NotAgainSU, refused to leave Crouse-Hinds Hall on Monday at its closing time of 9pm. The sit-in was part of #NotAgainSU’s continuing demonstrations against “hate crimes and bias incidents” on the Syracuse campus, The Daily Orange reports.
A temporary “interim suspension” means “the safety and well-being of the University community or specific persons [were] at risk.” A Department of Public Safety officer announced the suspensions via letters handed to students at 12:50am. The letter notes, however, that no decision has yet been made “about the protesters’ culpability in refusing to leave.”
In the last few months, Syracuse activists have demanded everything from the right to deny a roommate based on his/her race, to more counselors, multicultural offices, and a mandatory “unified” curriculum on anti-racism. An interim provost even suggested a greater selection of Chinese food offerings could be part of the solution to bias incidents.
