Five Members of the Living Wage Coalition are currently engaged in a sit-in in College President Taylor Reveley’s office. Fifteen members of the campaign entered Reveley’s office at approximately 9 a.m. this morning. The campaign then read workers’ letters aloud and sang the alma mater until the president vacated his office shortly after 11:00 a.m. to attend a luncheon.
At noon, after hosting a rally in front of the Brafferton, the number swelled to over 45 students and supporters occupying the President’s office at around 12:15 p.m. Reveley then returned to his office shortly after 1:00 p.m.
At 2:25 p.m., Vice President for Student Affairs Ginger Ambler ’88 Ph.D ’06 informed the office occupants that after 2:45 p.m., all Coalition members remaining in the office would begin to receive Student Code of Conduct violations for disrupting the work-flow of the College. At 5:00 p.m., there would be additional Student Conduct violations for remaining in a building after its closure.
The five students remaining in the office at press time are KB Brower ’11, Addie Alexander ’11, Katie Dalby ’11, Emily Glasson ‘13 and Maggie Russolello ’12. They have currently been given at least five student conduct violations.
