UC Santa Barbara Students March For Educational Changes

In solidarity with other college campuses UC Santa Barbara students rallied with a large march Thursday that called for a number of changes.

The list of demands included educational reforms and more respect for students of different religions and ethnicity.

The event was called a "million student march." Many carried signs and megaphones.

Recently there was a campus meeting to talk about free speech and a safe, welcoming campus to all students, faculty members and guests who come to UCSB.

The students who marched Thursday stopped in several locations to call for several changes including a tuition free education, and a $15-dollar an hour minimum wage for all campus employees.
