No safe spaces at Middle Tennessee State University, thanks to a vote by the student government:

In a demonstration of what one committed person can accomplish, Middle Tennessee State University’s student government has overwhelmingly approved a resolution against “safe spaces.”

It was shepherded through by Senator April Carroll, chairman of the College Republicans, who also helped found the school’s chapter of the free-market Turning Point USA.

Turning Point’s Hypeline reports that the vote total at Thursday night’s meeting was 33-6, with three abstentions. The resolution begins with a recitation of the First Amendment, and says college should be a place where “ideals can be freely and openly expressed and challenged.”
