Southern Cal Students Don't Like Security Rules

October 28, 2013

After four people were shot at a party at the University of Southern California at year ago, officials set new rules on security. But as The Los Angeles Times reported, many student leaders and organizations don't like the new regulations. Student organizations must pay for more security for many events, and student leaders say that this makes it more difficult to organize events. Many students reject the idea that security is their responsibility. "We think that money should be used to bring fun and interesting events to campus," said Logan Heley, a junior on the student government. "The costs associated with keeping students safe is the university's responsibility, not ours."
