At Dowling: Student Park-In

Monday, March 17, 1969

A “Park-In” by students in the faculty parking lot was held to protest the lack of security in the student parking lot. There had been many robberies of car contents, and also of a Corvette. President Robinson promptly met student demands, promising a security guard on duty there from 7:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m., a new fence, a better entrance and exit system, and an immediate crackdown on cars without proper identification. Each student protestor received one doughnut and one cup of coffee for their participation, if they arrived by 7:00 a.m. The student newspaper did a story on it the next day.
