Five students at Clemson University were arrested Thursday evening after they refused to end a sit-in in a campus building that has a closing time of 5:30 p.m., WYFF News reported. The students are part of a larger movement that has demanded that Clemson do more to recruit minority students and faculty members and make the campus more inclusive. The student demands state that the university's responses to racial incidents have been insufficient. The university pledged Thursday to do more to recruit and support minority students, but the protesters call those pledges inadequate.
