Students participating in Sleep-Out Protest, 1973

After reading the newspapers that so many people think was so long ago, it’s crazy to see the similarities. In recent years and even months protesting has been in the news often. In these pictures students were participating in the Student Sleep Out Protest in 1973. What was the protest actually about? Did they accomplish anything by protesting? Where they allowed to protest on campus or did they have to protest somewhere else?

Students participating in Time-Out Day

Another protest that was on campus was Time Out Day in the early 1970s. This protest took place in the cafeteria at Misericordia. What were they protesting about? Why did they choose to protest on campus? I just find it very interesting that protests actually took place on campus. I think that today, protests like this on campus would not be handled so well.

This photograph is a picture that was in the newspaper. The students were demonstrating for peaceful cooperation of Misericordia. What was Misericordia not cooperating with? Did this protest accomplish what the students wanted to accomplish?
