Texas State Students Stage Sit-in, Issue Demands

Students at Texas State University in San Marcos began a sit-in at the LBJ Student Center last night, and are demanding major changes to the curriculum and the removal of TSU's controvesial student body president, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.

The sit-in began after not enough student senators showed up for a meeting called to impeach President Connor Clegg, who has been under fire for making allegedly racially insensitive posts on social media.

"We're still here and we will continue to be here, until the administraton denounces the student government, especially Connor Clegg," junior Emma Orioha said.

Its been a tough semester at Texas State.  On several occasions, white supremacist groups have attempted to distribute fliers on campus, and the University newspaper came under national attention for publishing a column that was considered 'anti White.'

The strikers also have a list of demands, including the hiring by the University of a full time immigration lawyer to help DACA recipients with their immigration issues, establishment of a core requirement course in Black Studies, and the protesters want Clegg, whose term as student body president expires next week as the school year winds down, immediately removed from office.
