Tunnel of Oppression

‘Tunnel of Oppression’ set for Nov. 7 and 8

The Tunnel of Oppression is back for its fourth year at Boise State University and will take place the first full week in November.

The Tunnel of Oppression leads visitors through various connected rooms. Each room features a different kind of discrimination, with parts played by Boise State students. This year’s theme is “Make the Injustice Visible.”

Tours will take place every 30 minutes. After the tour, participants can discuss how they felt and what they learned from the tour in a group setting led by student leaders, administrators and counselors.
