At a time when universities across the country are cowering to the student body and giving them safe spaces to whine and make outrageous demands, one university put it’s foot down and showed the students who was really in charge.
At the Ohio State University, a group of students recently occupied the school’s administration building and demanded complete access to the school’s budget and that the school divest from Caterpillar, Inc. and Hewlett Packard because of the students perceived notion that those companies are anti-Palestinian. The protestors also demanded large purchases of local and organic foods
The vice president of Ohio State, Jay Kasey confronted the protesters and gave them a lesson in what life will be like in the real world. Kasey carried to the students a message from the university president. “Dr. Drake will never receive a list of demands and he will not negotiate with you,” Kasey told the students.
“If you refuse to leave, then you will be charged with a student code of conduct violation,” Kasey added. “If you are here at 5:00 a.m. we will clear the building and you will be arrested. We will give you the opportunity to go to jail for your beliefs,” Kasey said.
A student protester tried to argue the issue. “What do you mean ‘clear the building?’ he asked.
“Our police officers will physically pick you up and take you to a paddy wagon,” Kasey said. “The people who work in this building should be protected also.” Kasey also told the students that if they fail to leave the premises and are arrested, that they will be expelled from the university.
Let’s all take a minute and applaud Ohio State University. The no nonsense approach to handling the entitled students of today is a far cry from the way things were handled in Missouri. Enrollment has dropped at Missouri since the students were allowed to make demands. According to the National Review, Missouri had to close down two dormitories due to falling enrollment.
Students across the country are slowly realizing that just because they are paying to be at a university, they do not run the university.
