  • Concordia YAL Protests Grade Disparity?

    Concordia College’s Young Americans for Liberty “protested” the grade gap that exists among college students in America as part of the Occupy the Honor Roll movement.

  • DVC YAL Occupies the Library; Student Government Votes on GPA Redistribution

    The greedy 4.0ers on our campus are hogging up all of the GPA. While they advance to prestigious universities, the students with lower GPAs are not offered the same opportunities. Wouldn’t it be fair, in the name of justice and equality, to level the playing field and increase the GPAs of lower ranking students by …

  • Occupy the Honor Roll ETSU

    On Friday the 27th, the ETSU chapter of Young Americans for Liberty conducted our final event of the semester.

    The YAL group at NC State took to the brickyard on the last week of classes to #occupy GPA where a group of Obama supporters was registering voters.

  • The 89% make their statement at UCF

    On April 18th, YAL at UCF made students aware about Occupy the Honor Roll. Outside the UCF Student Union we educated students about the 89% and how to properly redistribute GPA’s to make everything more “fair.” In the hot Florida weather we used our trademark tactic of giving out free popsicles to students. These sweet, …

  • The 89% strike UCLA — liberty style!

    Our Young Americans for Liberty chapter at UCLA just finished our April Activism event, “Occupy the Honor Roll,” in which we took campus by storm to protest the egregious GPA inequality of our educational system.

  • St. Cloud State YAL Takes on 4.0 Fat-Cats

    Whether it was having students who legitimately wanted a redistribution of grades and never got the whole satire part of the event — or other students who hated the proposal but didn’t understand what satire is — this event was an interesting one, to say the least. It was a day of railing against all …
