SBU will be enforcing many safety protocols (mask wearing, social distancing, etc). To really make campus safe, everyone will have to do their part. How strictly would you be able to follow those guidelines? 

Overall I feel like I will be able to follow most of the social distancing guidelines. It will definitely be different having to remember to wear a mask all the time, but if it will get us back to campus I am more than happy to comply. 

Can you see other students struggling to follow certain guidelines? Why or why not? We are talking about college students...many will want to see their friends, go out, etc.

I could definitely see other students struggle to follow social distancing guidelines. Each student is different and they may have different views about it then the next, but it’s important that students listen so that this doesn’t become a big issue when we get back to campus. 

How safe would you personally feel returning to a classroom environment? Why/Why not?

I feel safe returning to a classroom environment. I am ready to get out of the house! I believe Bonaventure has an effective plan that will keep us safe and healthy, but allow us to have a good time as well. 

Are you living on or off campus? What worries do you have about life away from the classroom? 

I am living on campus. I will definitely be more cautious when out of the classroom. Our lives will never be the same again until we find a vaccine. With that being said there are lots of germs everywhere especially places with lots of people. So I will be more cautious by making sure I have hand sanitizer on me at all times and just trying to keep my hands away from my face. It’s a new experience for all of us, but together we can make Bonaventure a safe and fun environment while continuing to follow social distancing guidelines.
