This is the second First Amendment story at Hampton in the last two years. Previously, a former president of the school confiscated the student paper run when her letter to the campus on health concerns in the student cafeteria were run on page three rather than the front page she had requested. This cost Hampton a $55,000 grant from the American Society of Newspaper Editors.
It's not often I agree with the Nation, but this is quite clearly a repulsive act by Hampton U., and they should require that the school's administration join the seven students for twenty hours of First Amendment training
