E-town College students, alumni to protest liberal arts cuts on Homecoming weekend - ALEX GELI, Lancaster Online
On arguably the busiest weekend on campus, a student group at Elizabethtown College plans to call attention to a rift it says the college created after it announced the elimination of some liberal arts programs and staff. The Elizabethtown Student Advocacy Group is organizing a “peace walk” Saturday, on Homecoming weekend, starting at noon. A dozen or so students, alumni and community members are expected to walk from Leffler Chapel and Performance Center to the Baugher Student Center. The event, organizers say, is to open up a dialogue between college administrators and students over budget cuts.
