WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The student sit-in at the Howard University administration building continued on Friday, its second day, in the wake of news of the misappropriation of financial aid money for almost a decade.
Leaders of the sit-in said they will continue to occupy the building until their demands have been met. Those demands include the resignation of the the university president, Dr. Wayne Frederick.
They said approximately 350 students occupy the four floors of the building.
Earlier on Friday, the president and the chairman of the board of trustees released statements in response to the sit-in. Both statements addressed some of the demands of the students and stated how the university is already dealing with the underlying issues.
