A four-day sit-in at Cal State Fullerton is over after students reached an agreement with the administration.

About 20 students began the sit-in on Monday night following a meeting with CSUF President Milton Gordon. By Wednesday, they'd grown to more than 80.

Protestors were angry over university system budget cuts and the president's refusal to sign their statement to defend education. Gordon said he was concerned about some of the language regarding teachers.

Protesters and administration officials finally agreed on how the statement would read. Talks were civil, and there were no arrests.
