BOSTON, MA (WBZ-AM) -- Colleges all over the country are getting a flurry of calls from prospective students, concerned about being punished for taking part in the growing number of student led gun protests.
Several Massachusetts schools, including Worcester Polytechnic Institute are telling students to go ahead and join in, as long as they protest peacefully. They say applicants and accepted students who take part in protests will not have their admissions revoked, even if they're disciplined for leaving class.
WPI Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid Andrew Palumbo Speaks with WBZ’s Kim Tunnicliffe about the decision.
