Students at AUB erected some 20 tents on campus Wednesday for a symbolic occupation of College Hall in protest against a proposed tuition hike.Passing through the protest camp Wednesday afternoon, however, professor Vijay Prashad said the university's rhetoric was hollow.They have a negative history in Lebanon," he told The Daily Star, but added that he respected the students' views.He questioned the level of support for the occupation and voiced doubt about whether many students would actually spend the night. While initially reticent, President Peter Dorman allowed the occupation to take place after students agreed to certain stipulations, according to Amir Richani, a student leader.Showing that the students can sustain a peaceful and productive protest is also an important aspect of the occupation, engineering student Weam Dallal said.
