Colleges Assuring Applicants Gun Protests Won’t Be Held Against Them

Two National School Walkouts and the March For Our Lives expected to be huge events.



Multiple universities across the U.S. have taken steps to ensure high school seniors that participating in upcoming protests organized in the wake of the Parkland, Fla. school shooting will not be a factor in their college admission process.

This is in contrast to some high school and middle school districts, who have announced punishments for students who participate in the Women’s March’s Youth EMPOWER school walkout on March 14, The March For Our Lives 10 days later and the April 20 National School Walkout.

Penn State, the University of Connecticut, Brown, American University, Northeastern, Bucknell and Boston College are among those who used social media to let prospective incoming freshmen that they have anything to worry about when it comes to exercising their right to protest.
