Increased arrests at NYU, Columbia shifts to hybrid schedule amid ongoing college protests

Campus tensions over the Israel-Hamas conflict escalated as pro-Palestinian demonstrators were arrested at New York University and Columbia University shifted to a hybrid schedule. Passover began amid more than 100 arrests at various universities, including Yale. Columbia reached a boiling point last Thursday with over 100 arrests at a pro-Palestinian encampment, prompting virtual classes and eventually a hybrid schedule. Jewish students faced antisemitic harassment, leading to safety concerns. Other universities, such as MIT and Emerson College, also saw pro-Palestinian demonstrations. Politicians, including President Biden, expressed concern while protests continue across campuses.
