Desirae Palacios
a freshman studying business and political science
“We’re getting close to where we don’t need them, but we’re not there yet. I feel like it’s still kind of necessary to wear the mask; I think we still need more time with them.”








Kylee Harris
freshman, business and art history major
“I don’t think it’s a good idea; I have grandparents that I really care about.”

Mallory Lysaught
senior music education major
“I’m honestly okay with it; I think it would be nice to see everyone’s face again.”

Zachary Yelland
sophomore entrepreneurial business major with a minor in leadership studies
“I have mixed feelings. As people get the coronavirus vaccine it makes it better, but I have the weird feeling in the back of my mind that it might just completely whiplash on us.”

Yusuke Takahashi
freshman kinesiology major
“I think we should wear our masks until the coronavirus is completely gone.”
