According to students at Liberty University who spoke to BuzzFeed News, the conservative Christian university chose to host Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign announcement during one of the school’s mandatory convocations held three times per week, which resident students must attend or else pay a $10 fine, a decision that some students criticized as sending the message that the student body endorses Cruz. What do you think?


“You have to admit, the mandatory standing ovation was pretty rousing.”
