As of 3pm, Thursday, UC Santa Cruz’s main administrative building, Kerr Hall has been occupied.

Thursday 5:45pm: still occupied, discussing the night.

Thursday 6:30pm: Alma Sifuentes, Dean of Students has arranged to not call the police (the time frame is unclear) as long as students remain non-violent and do not create physical barricades.

Thursday 6:50pm: The administrators refused to provide a written-copy of the previous agreement.

Friday 12:00am: Students are still in Kerr Hall (~200-300) and another 50 students are in the Kresge Town Hall watching revolutionary films. Kerr Hall is absolutely packed, there is very little space to even sit down in!

Friday 9:00am: All is well. A rally at noon is planned in front of Kerr hall

Over a hundred students continue to occupy Kerr Hall. Students are currently talking about things such as how the building will or will not be barricaded. Many people have indicated that they are willing to spend the night here.

Attrition of protester numbers already indicate that the fun is over and the real decisions are coming.

I anticipate the campus is going to set a time limit, and then arrest and expel anybody still occupying.

Please consider your choices, values, and dedication accordingly. If you're really dedicated to this, best of luck. If not, get out when given the offer.

If they're expelled, so be it...I believe one would rather be expelled briefly from their college education and continue it, then not be able to afford college and drop out. The fee increase is ridiculous and the students must do whatever possible to show the UC Regents that their decision was the wrong one.
