Would you give up your first amendment rights for free food?

     Yes the title is right. At a honors society class taught by Susan Jezewski Evans, scores of students traded in their first amendment rights for a free lunch and to reexamine what those rights mean. Unlike the protests of the 1960's, the demonstration was positive and was supported by the University newspaper. Students were reeducated on the rights we take for granted in this country and what would happen if we exercised free speech, freedom of the press or simply wearing a t-shirt. The video for the story is below.
