Imagine my horror as I walked out of my French class this morning to see someone setting up a table, covered in lovely royal blue felt, with two tiers of Watchtower literature attractively displayed.

I am not sure what university policy is in general as regards proselytizing on campus (but I intend to find out).

Does anyone know if there has been a recent Kingdom Ministry part on going to campuses in one's territory or if that is a new suggestion being put forth during Circuit Overseer visits?
I've got a Spanish exam tonight to study for this afternoon, but I'm heading back to campus before my noon class to ask the administration if they realize that the Witnesses are a mind-control group and should not be considered to be just like any other religion.

I'll keep you posted, but I want SO badly to shut this down. NOW! (If I didn't have the tests I'd sit down across the way and warn passersby, "It's a cult, you know..."
