A higher education trade journal has parachuted into the UNC Chapel Hill/Tom Tancredo/tuition-for-illegal-immigrants/student protestors brouhaha with a story about Youth for Western Civilization, the student organization that brought the controversial congressman to campus last week.
If you recall, Tancredo's planned speaking engagement didn't go so well. He barely got started before student protesters essentially drove him from the room amid the sound of a shattered window pane.
Youth for Western Civilization is a small student group. It has less than 10 chapters nationally and on the Chapel Hill campus, it has about that many members. But it certainly got people's eye last week bringing Tancredo in.
As Riley Matheson, the head of the local chapter, put it in this Inside Higher Ed article: "We're still considered probably by most students to be sort of a rogue group right now."
