DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - A sit-in outside the president’s office at Duke University continues, although one of the nine protesters has left for a time.

Anastasia Karklina of Duke Students and Workers in Solidarity confirmed Wednesday that Amy Wang has left to attend a poetry slam contest in Texas. Wang hopes to rejoin the protesters Sunday if the sit-in continues.

The protest began Friday in a reception area outside the office of school President Richard Brodhead. School officials have said they won’t negotiate with the students until they leave the building but the students say they’re staying.

The students want three administrators fired, including one involved in a dispute with a parking attendant. The attendant has sued, accusing the administrator of using a racial slur.
