Student protesters were basically protesting the draft. College deferrments were given to students if they held 18 college credits and maintained a 2.0 average; otherwise they risked being inducted into the military. Student protests, and non-student protests simply added to the confusion that already existed in the 1960's, e.g. assassinations, war, and various civil rights movements taking place.
