A group of Syracuse University student organizations says progress has been made but is still insisting the administration can do more to meet their demands. Kent Syverud, Chancellor of the university, released what he called the administrations final response to THE General Body Wednesday night.

THE General Body has been holding a sit-in at Crouse-Hinds Hall for the past ten days. Colton Jones, a member of THE General Body, says that specific problems, such as the closing of the advocacy center, have yet to be addressed by the current administration.
