You would have thought they were handing out Confederate flags. “Student Eric Corgas was approached by Skyline administrators while holding a ‘free speech ball’ event in October,” according to the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE). “Corgas, who serves as president of the Skyline chapter of Young Americans for Liberty, was first told that he had to remove a small folding table while distributing copies of the Constitution of the United States.”

“Another administrator then told Corgas that he needed to complete a permit application before engaging in any kind of expressive activity on campus.” Then FIRE got involved and the school reversed policy.
