Free Speech at TTU

Freedom of Speech, was the focus of a petition circulating around the Texas Tech campus on Monday. A handful of students are trying to raise awareness that at a public university, free speech should be allowed anywhere.

According to a code in the student handbook, free speech is only tolerated in designated areas, but in the last few weeks several hundred students have signed up to change that policy. "The free speech codes on campus are inadequate. Because this is a public campus, because it's an institution that receives our tax dollars, our constitutional rights should be guaranteed everywhere, not just in certain areas," says Brian Roa, a Tech student leading the petition.

The students have collected about 700 signatures so far, their goal is for 1,000 students to sign up.
