Tuesday is Ron Paul Day in Chico!Submitted by John P. Slevin on Mon, 04/02/2012 - 09:08
They know a Ron Paul crowd is on the way.
(From Chico State website:) "Since 1969 and throughout its existence, the Free Speech Area, now called Trinity Commons, has reflected the times. During the Vietnam War years, it was an arena for debate. In the early 1970s, the area became a venue for entertainment, with bands playing several times a week. The 1988–89 school year saw renewed student activism as one group staged several cardboard box sleep-in rallies to bring attention to the plight of the homeless. After the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, almost 2,000 people gathered in the Free Speech Area for a memorial. Trinity Commons is still being used in these ways today."
The college knows there will be a crowd and a spokesperson had this to say: "We'll go into high gear tomorrow (Monday) to make sure we can accommodate him..."
