Campus Close-Up

How do you feel about trigger warnings, and using them in classrooms?

“When it comes to violence, it’s different because someone could have PTSD. People who don’t have PTSD should be encouraged to read instead of being warned.”

Madison Bredice, Sopohomore Spanish Major

 

 

 

“You shouldn’t expect to be warned about an academic subject at a university-level. I understand that people have issues, and this is not to discredit them, but those people can excuse themselves from an assignment.”

Ben Bruni, Junior Pre-Pharmacy Major

 

“People have different experiences that they might not want to share publicly. Trigger warnings allow students to privately opt out of assignments that would cause them any pain.”

Emily Downing, Freshman Anthropology Major
