ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A couple dozen students spent the night in the Macalester College administration building where they’re protesting the school’s ties to Wells Fargo.

Students began their protest Tuesday at the St. Paul college when they entered the office of President Brian Rosenberg. By evening, the students had moved to a common area of the administration building.

Student organizer Rebecca Hornstein says they want Macalester to end its business relationship with Wells Fargo because of the bank’s negligent practices during the foreclosure crisis. Macalester partners with Wells Fargo for its purchasing card program to buy goods and services.

Hornstein said Wednesday protesters plan to occupy the building until they receive a favorable response from the administration.
