At Wells College Students protest trustee decision to go coed
10 Oct 2004
Almost 200 students (over half of the residential students at Wells) have taken over Macmillan, the main academic building at Wells College, located in Aurora New York. On Saturday October 2, the trustees of Wells College a women's college for 136 year decided to go co-ed.
In a statement, the students said: "We have been here since shortly after 2:00pm on Saturday, October 2. We will stay here until the Board of Trustees agrees to our list of demands."

Approximately 10 students are on a hunger strike and students that are protesting are being denied access to food from the dining hall. Media attention and donations are coming in; however, they still need help. Please direct monetary donations to:
