Howard University sit-in goes to day 5 after $1 million in financial aid stolen


WASHINGTON (WJLA) - The sit-in at Howard University is expected to go into its fifth day amid the news that the school will meet two of the demands that students have been calling for.

The two demands include an update to the Title IX policy and increased housing accommodations, according to ABC7's Anna-Lysa Gayle.

Currently in their fourth day, student protests at Howard startedafter an anonymous blog article claimed members in the financial aid office had stolen nearly $1 million. Students at Howard University are refusing to leave the school's administration building — home to the university's financial aid office — which is at the center of a scandal.

Howard University President Wayne A.I. Frederick did not reveal the news for nearly six months and one of the students' nine demands is that he resign.
