Students hold protests across the University campus every year, whether they’re performing sit-ins on Black Lives Matter or voicing their dislike of certain politicians. We dug into our archives to find some vintage images that capture unrest around campus from decades past, including some shots of students picking sides in the controversial pro-life/pro-choice debate.
