During the late 1960s and early 1970s, a wave of protest and counterprotest rocked college campuses nationwide. Evangelical and fundamentalist schools were no different, though the protests usually took on the tones of the evangelical/fundamentalist family feud. Students fought for and against a list of reform ideas, including ideas about American policy in Vietnam, free speech for students, and greater freedom from traditional lifestyle rules for students. Perhaps more important than these headline-grabbing protests, however, were the radical changes in demography and college attendance fueled by the baby boom and the GI Bill. Just as they did on all campuses, these trends utterly transformed fundamentalist and evangelical schools.
