OccupyCollegesMark Memmott writes on NPR:

As the Occupy Wall Street protests enter their 19th day and continue to spread well beyond lower Manhattan, there’s word from the related “Occupy Colleges” movement that a “nationwide college student walk out” has been called for noon today.

Right now (8 a.m. ET) the website lists 75 colleges where walkouts are expected to happen. The reference to noon is to the local time at each school, the website indicates.
