Indoctrinate U - A Must See 

Tonight was the premier opening of the documentary film, Indoctrinate U brought to the Twin CIties by the Minnesota Association of Scholars. Producer, Thor Halvorssen and Director, Evan Maloney joined 65 supporters for a dinner at McNamara Alumni Center at the University of Minnesota. We learned the background of the movie, what it took to get it to its current state, and future plans.

Minneapolis-St. Paul is the first location to offer multiple showings of the film. You can see it at the Oak Street Cinema near the U of MN campus. Times are as follows:
Saturday/Sunday 7:15, with a 5:15 Matinee each day;
Monday through Thursday 7:15 and 9:15, with 5:15 Matinees Tuesday & Wednesday

If you are a college student, a parent with college students, a future college student, this movie is a must see. What has happened since the 1960's on our campuses is a disgrace, a waste of taxpayer money, but most importantly, a defeat for the open exchange of ideas. Our nation has thrived on the exchange of ideas, different opinions, and the right to express them. Forcing students to adhere to a one-sided philosophy is bad for all.
