CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -
A group of University of Northern Iowa students showed their disapproval for the proposed budget cuts Monday.
Students United for Academics started their protest at 7:00 a.m. About a dozen students placed themselves on the ground floor of Seerley Hall as part of a planned study vigil.
"Basically we are just studying, learning, talking, having discussions in proximity to the administration offices. Our goal is for them to see that there are people here, there are students here to learn, here to study, and we are here to support the academic integrity of the university," UNI graduate student Ray Werner said.
They started their protest Monday morning and plan to stay there until 7:00 Friday evening.
