HARRISONBURG,Va. (WHSV)-- Students no longer have to be part of a student organization and are no longer required to register with their college four days before speaking in open areas of campus.
Many students have said community colleges have no right to regulate when and where someone should speak.
"It would be crazy if they limited one section of campus off where we could organize and talk about how we feel," said Victor Schultz, a Shenandoah Valley college student.
"Demonstrating is definitely a big part of social movements and I think that college students should have right, and citizen really, should have the right to organize where they want, and speak about what they want," said Schultz.
A lawsuit led by an organization called 'Alliance Defending Freedom' led to the changes.
