List names SU as one of the worst colleges for free speech

March 27, 2012

Syracuse (WSYR-TV) — Syracuse University has a less than desirable new title. The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education puts SU at number two on its list of schools that are the worst colleges for free speech. 

They attribute the story of SU grad student Matthew Werenczak, who we first told you about back in January. 

Werenczak was expelled from SU after making a comment on his Facebook page that SU deemed "offensive and insensitive." He was then asked to complete anger management counseling and write a paper. He was then reinstated.

The University of Cincinnati came in at number one on the list.
