Student Anger Grows at Howard University

March 9, 2018

Students at Howard University are criticizing the administration there, and specifically President Wayne A. I. Frederick, over problems with housing -- and his response to a complaint from a student, The Washington Post reported. After a student sent him an email about her concerns over not being able to secure housing for next year, he wrote back criticizing her "tone." She then shared that email and received strong support from fellow students, who said she was expressing how many feel.

Students organized a protest, with many saying he is understating a significant problem.
