York Tech announced in an email Tuesday that their Rock Hill campus will be closed this Friday and Saturday due to protests happening at the school.
The Rock Hill and Western York County branches of the NAACP announced in a statement last week that they would be gathering on those days Friday and Saturday to protest the South Carolina Sons of Confederate Veterans convention at the college.
York tech officials said because of the protests there remains a level of uncertainty of the impact to college operations and the safety and security of the campus. Online classes and classes at other campuses such as Chester and Indian Land will continue as normal.
Only authorized personnel will be permitted onto the campus
