The Town Hall
Prior to announcing the Cactus closure, the university had scheduled a public forum, or “Town Hall,” hosted by campus president Bill Powers for the purpose of discussinga range of university financial concerns. News of the Cactus decision reached the public just a few days before this forum. So many Cactus supporters showed up to address the president, that the Town Hall turned out to beabout nothing other than the cafe. Listen as, for over two hours, students and community members made their emotional case for the survival of the renowned listening room.
