EVANSVILLE, Ind (WEHT) A petition targeting USI has more than doubled in size in less than a week. The effort surrounds a student with Tourette’s Syndrome who was removed from in-person classes.
Freshman Seth Pressler said he was told he couldn’t take part in on campus classes, but the university is allowing him to continue his education online.
A Change.org petition supporting Pressler now has more than 29,000 signatures.
The university’s president released a statement saying they must always consider the safety and good of the whole university.
A protest was held October 15 on USI’s campus in support of Pressler.
