Forty students to remain in Crouse-Hinds Hall through weekend

Doors to the building closed at 5 p.m., and will unlock at 7 a.m. Monday.

Forty students will remain in the lobby Crouse-Hinds Hall this weekend, continuing the sit-in that began after the Diversity and Transparency Rally on Monday afternoon.

Doors to the building were locked at 5 p.m., while an atmosphere of song and celebration continued in the building’s lobby. Members of THE General Body sang lyrics describing their rally on the Quad and subsequent protest movements. The repeated refrain was: “You can’t stop the revolution.”

Laura Cohen, a magazine journalism and women and gender studies senior, said the 40 students who will stay have committed to remaining in the building between 5 p.m. on Friday and 7 a.m. on Monday. These students will be allowed to leave the building during the weekend, but locked doors will prevent them from returning to the building until Monday morning.

The crowd began to decrease in number after 5 p.m., but had still not shrunk to its maximum of 40 people by 5:20 p.m.
