“I think that it’s a really good thing that we have to do it because there are a lot of problems in today’s society that it covers.”

Freshman, Undecided

“To us [students], we probably think it’s stupid, but I think that it opens our eyes to these things that do happen and that we really do need to be responsible about it. Even though we think that we know what to do, we still need to be conscious and be smart about what we do.”

“I think that if it was necessary for some people, then that’s good, but it wasn’t necessary for me and it did nothing for me.”

“It took way longer than it should have, and it kind of repeated the same lessons over and over again.”

“I thought the intentions were good, but I felt like it didn’t apply to me, so I didn’t think it was necessary for everyone.”

“I think it’s just common sense. Idon’t think we needed to do two hours of it. I think it was a bit too much.”

“I feel like everyone should have basic knowledge on it. It’s good that they’re doing it, but they shouldn’t require it in order to be able to sign up for classes.”

“I think it’s kind of stupid. I guess it’s a good thing for us to watch the video because it gets a good message out to students.”

“I feel like it’s mostly common sense that everybody should know already. They just reinforce it more, but it’s basically common sense for everyone.

“I think it’s a good thing Parkside is doing, but I don’t think they should require it for registration of classes. Some people have time to do it, some people don’t.”

“It’s a sort of guideline thing, so you know what to do or what not to do.”
