The good professor and his students are also more than welcome to purchase a lot on Bishop and build their own "sustainable" structure if they choose. Until then, they should just shut up and stop meddling in things they nothing about. These kinds if things only exacerbate tensions between the university and the town and build resentment towards students and professors.
I encourage you to register your disapproval of this agenda-advancing cheap stunt to Professor Rahmani at: firstname.lastname@example.org and WSU President Elson Floyd at email@example.com. Let's clog their inboxes with our indignation at our town being used as some social engineering laboratory.
A group of more than 100 Washington State University students protested building sprawl on Bishop Boulevard Thursday morning.
Enrolled in an Architecture 202 class taught by Ayad Rahmani, the students carried signs proclaiming “Stop Architorture in Pullman” and “The Show Starts on the Sidewalk.” The group’s purpose was to promote sustainable structures and growth, not haphazardly constructed strip malls and big box stores.
“There’s no cohesion,” said 21-year old WSU student Angela Congdon. “Everything is random.”
Participation in the protest was optional for the roughly 200 students enrolled in the class. Extra credit was given to students who protested, as well as those who didn’t — as long as they justified their position in writing.
