USC students protest campus lockdown

USCCampusFencesAfter a campus shooting during a student-run Halloween party one year ago, USC began tightening its nightly security measures — causing some students to question the university’s intentions. Since last January, campus access from 9 p.m. to 6 p.m. has been limited to students, faculty, staff and registered guests.

USC has installed fences both permanent and temporary to enforce the new rules. To student Makiah Green from USC’s Change Movement, the fences symbolize racial and economic divides on and around USC. She began a petition last week to urge President C.L. “Max” Nikias to find different ways to keep the campus safe.

What side of the fence are you on? Listen to the opinions of Green and other students in an audio story from Annenberg Radio News:
