Two-Thirds of Students Threaten to Leave Wilberforce U.
About two-thirds of the 510 students at Wilberforce University have requested withdrawal forms to formally threaten to leave by next fall if they don't see dramatic improvements, The Dayton Daily News reported. Students at the private, historically black university have raised complaints over the quality of facilities, safety, library hours, food service and more. Organizers of a protest last week said that they have tried to explain the problems to the administration, but that officials have not been responsive. President Patricia Hardaway said that she has an "open door" policy for students, and is working on many of the issues they have raised.
