UConn Students Protest Hogan's Office Renovation, Tuition Hike

STORRS - University of Connecticut students, unhappy with next fall's tuition increase and with costly renovations to President Michael Hogan's office, were treated to an impromptu walk on the president's $4,215 rug Monday.

"La FECQ-FEUQ ne nous représente pas" pouvait-on lire sur une bannière lors de la manifestation d'ouverture de la grève étudiante, le jeudi 24 février passé. Cette même bannière se retrouve présentement "aux barricades" devant l'entrée du Cégep du Vieux-Montréal, qui est occupée par les étudiant-e-s en grève.
