Hey guys, we realize we never really clarified just how the protest ended or how long is lasted -- we left some of that up to you guys, but officially people were out of the city by yesterday! The riots were worse on the first two days, and became less hostile/violent by yesterday afternoon. Police barricades are still up in the downtown core, and the police presence has increased, but has become less prominent since this morning.
The university itself will be sending out a private email to all students and staff regarding the riots and how it'll affect the school. We have yet to finish the post, but classes will begin on the 17th while the town and school do some clean up. There'll be further instructions in the email!
Some students will be relocating to different buildings while the damage is repaired on campus. There wasn't too much, mostly damaged windows, doors, and graffiti. These include students in the Music department and in the Sciences building. Only for about a month's time or so!
We're hoping to finish the email for the morning, so please keep your eyes peeled. ♥
