Some feel that Martin was a target because of his appearance of wearing a hooded sweatshirt, and because of his race.
On Friday afternoon students at Hamilton College raised awareness by wearing hooded sweatshirts.
Martin was shot and killed in February by George Zimmerman.
Zimmerman says he killed Trayvon Martin in self-defense because of his suspicious appearance.
Students at Hamilton College wanted to make it known that there is nothing wrong with wearing a hoodie.
"No matter your color, your race, your sex, and your clothes, we don't think those are factors that should be involved in calling the police and reporting somebody as suspicious," said Vice President of the Black and Latino Union at Hamilton College, Christopher Delacruz.
The students made their way through the campus in hopes of catching the attention of people in the community to ask the question, "What's with all the hoodies?"
"People start questioning, and asking what is this for, what is this all about? They realize someone was killed in Miami just for walking at night and wearing a hoody and for being black. I think they'll realize how unfair that is," said Hamilton College student, Kevin Rovelli.
But Christopher Delacruz says they also want to leave people with a deeper question.
"I want people to look at me and think to themselves, does he look suspicious?" said Delacruz.
And for Hamilton College Student, Kevin Rovelli, he says it's not just about marching in a hooded sweatshirt, but more on continuing the awareness.
"If people continue wearing their hoodies like this, it will only remind us of the fact that this incident occurred and we need to pay attention. From now on, and in the future whenever I see somebody wearing a hoodie, I will never think that person is up to something," said Rovelli.
