Tent University Built and UCSC Main Campus Shut Down During Occupy Education Actions, Pt 2
On March 1, hundreds of students at the University of California Santa Cruz, with the aid of local community members, built a tent university at the base of campus as a part a coordinated day of Occupy Education actions statewide. A general strike with regards to the main campus was also planned, and students blocked both entrances to the university and effectively shut down UCSC for approximately 16 hours. In the words of one UC police officer that day, "students have taken control of the campus."

Campus police moved closer to the main entrance as the number of demonstrators decreased.
