Following an historic presidential election, students from both sides of the political spectrum gathered on the courtyard outside of WKU’s Pearce-Ford Tower Wednesday night (Nov. 9). As the crowd grew after the activation of the Keen Hall fire alarm, WKU Police, with assistance from Bowling Green Police and Warren County Sheriff’s Office, ordered the crowd to disperse. Five students were arrested, charged with disorderly conduct second degree and failure to disperse.
While WKU encourages the free discourse of ideas, it must be done in a manner that adheres to the student code of conduct and all applicable laws. All members of the WKU community should use civility and respect when voicing opinions.
