The California State University, Sacramento (CSUS) sit-in ended early Saturday morning, as police entered Sacramento Hall and woke up sleeping protesters. The administration building had been occupied since Wednesday when students, staff and faculty across the California State University campuses protested budget cuts and student fee increases.
According to a blog kept by the Sacramento State Students for Quality Education, CSUS police in riot gear entered the building at 12:30 a.m. and returned at 3:24 a.m. Though police threatened force if the students did not leave, the 27 students – down from around 100 on Wednesday afternoon – voluntarily left the building.
CSUS police were not available to comment.
