Illinois News Roundup - May 3, 2024


It's time for our Friday Reporter Roundtable, today we'll focus on Urbana-Champaign, Bloomington-Normal, and Evanston.

We'll start off with a timeline of events at Northwestern University, and hear about the negotiations that took place, with reflections from the community.

Then, we'll hear about the protests taking place at Illinois State University, and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. We'll discuss the demands from the protestors and the responses from administrators, look at the Jewish community's pride event, and discuss the two arrests in Urbana.
