Tribal college evicts squatters occupying property

Davis, California (AP) 2-08

An occupation at California’s only tribal college has ended with the arrest of three self-described students.

About a dozen former students had been occupying the dorms and holding their own classes at D-Q University since 2005, when the college lost its accreditation and federal funding over financial and enrollment problems.

In mid February, Yolo County sheriff’s deputies evicted three remaining squatters at the direction of some members of the university’s board, who were concerned about safety and liability.

Vice Chairwoman Jane Elliott said there is no heat or hot water at the property on the outskirts of town.
