PEORIA - Rarely does anybody like to feel oppressed. But at Bradley University, students are hoping to feel as close to it as possible.
The Tunnel of Oppression uses realistic and interactive ways show people oppressive behavior that exists in the world. Topics like the Holocaust, child abuse, sex slavery and homelessness are some of the issues showcased through skits and other forms.
Students who participated say it opened their eyes to how poorly people are treated, and they hope people consider the struggles that a lot of people face.
"This is just like bringing diversity and education to the students because i think its really necessary just to get rid of ignorance," said student Whitney Huggins.
After the tour, visitors talk about their experiences and are asked to sign a pledge against oppression.
Tomorrow is the last day for the tours and it is open to the public.
It lasts from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday in the Michael Student Ballroom at Bradley University.
