I understand that the demonstration April 3 by the members of Chi Alpha created controversy with some of the student body who witnessed the event, resulting in a complaint being filed.
However, I don’t think there should be any changes regarding the current application process for groups wishing to demonstrate on campus.
The rules you provided in your article are pretty self-explanatory and standard for a campus to hold, and I don’t think adding any more restrictions would improve the student life here.
While the reaction to the members of Chi Alpha was mostly negative, they still completed the application process and abided by the rules mentioned.
While I do not agree with the message they were trying to send to the public, I do not think that any more restrictions on student demonstrations and the application process should be added.
