A group of Florida State University students held a demonstration today on campus.

Most of the students are part of the college of economics, which accepted a private donation from Charles Koch back in 2008.

The demonstrators say, their education is being threatened by other departments and students who think the 1.5 million dollar donation is unfair.

Andrea Castillo, who supports the Koch Donation says, "really we should be proud that we got this money. It opens a lot of opportunities for students and really sets are department apart from any other department in the State."

The group wants folks to sign a petition to get the attention University President Eric Barron.

    Hahahaha... "protests" at FSU are hilarious. Remember the "tent city" when they were protesting FSU's involvement with Nike? Because Nike used asian "slave labor"? Yet all their tents and coolers, cellphones, air mattresses, sandals, etc were made....where? Silly hippies.

    Thank you students for standing up against the liberal crowd. The other poster did not read that these students were in favor of the money.
