In what has been a grueling year-long campaign, the inspirational student group at Michigan State University, SPAR (Students Promoting Animal Rights), has officially banned the circus from coming to their campus!
The campaign has involved extensive protests from students, letters to the editor, and one massive Facebook group, but it was all worth it. The circus has been coming to the school since 1992, but there will be no visit in 2009!
You can read all of the details, straight from the group’s Vice President, Mitch Goldsmith, by clicking here, or on the image below.
P.S. SPAR is one of the student groups nominated in this year’s peta2 Libby Awards. If you feel that they deserve the title of “Best Student Group”, make sure to cast your ballot here!
