Flashback Friday: Hotung patio opens amid controversy

The lower patio of the campus center has seen its share of events and protests over the years. In fact, its very opening was met with a protest back in 1998. According to an Oct. 6, 1998 article in the Daily, a group of students gathered at the Hotung patio’s opening ceremony to object to the university’s use of funding. Students were upset that Tufts does not use a need-blind admissions policy, and were pointing to the construction of the patio as an example of spending that they felt could contribute instead to financial aid.
