Amid Protests, Rittenhouse Reportedly Quits ASU
Amid uproar from some Arizona State University students over Kyle Rittenhouse’s admittance to an online program, the 18-year-old reportedly is no longer enrolled in classes.
Last week, the Chicago Tribune reported that Rittenhouse started an ASU online program on Oct. 13 and that he hoped to re-enroll in classes on campus following his acquittal.
However, university officials announced that Rittenhouse is no longer enrolled in any courses at ASU. The news comes after several student groups demanded that the school rescind his admission. The groups included Students for Socialism, Students for Justice in Palestine, Multicultural Solidarity Coalition, and MECHA de ASU.
Not all ASU students called for Rittenhouse’s withdrawal, though. The College Republicans United, a conservative student group, previously donated more than $14,000 for Rittenhouse’s legal fees. According to their website, the group is now accepting donations to help Rittenhouse “sue the media for malpractice, libel, and defamation.”
