Local students and city residents gathered outside NYU’s Kimmel student center today to show support. Some banged drums, others just chanted, “Solidarity.”
Drew Phillips a 22-year-old philosophy major at NYU was one of the last five protesters to emerge and said his student coalition, Take Back NYU!, felt helpless when the university did not respond to a letter written in September that called for more 'accountability and transparency' in the school's budget and funding. There demands are posted here.
