SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - A student activist group at Syracuse University has rejected a college administration attempt to end its three-day sit-in protesting the handling of racist incidents on campus.

The group #NotAgainSU launched the protest at the administration building on Monday with more than 20 students.

They said the school has failed to address allegations of racism, anti-Semitism and homophobia that prompted student protests last fall.

At least 30 students were placed under interim suspension Tuesday after they refused to leave the administration building.

The university's Vice President for Student Experience Rob Hradsky said Wednesday the protesters rejected offers of a compromise aimed at finding "common ground."
