Mother Jones magazine has released its annual honors for campus activism. Among those praised are the Princeton University students who staged their own filibusters to protest the plans by Sen. Bill Frist, the Republican Senate leader and a Princeton alumnus, to kill off the filibuster; Washington University in St. Louis students who staged a lengthy sit-in for better wages for campus employees; and Calvin College students and faculty members who protested a speech by President Bush.
