“Back where I’m from [Hawaii] we don’t really get too busy concerning ourselves with things like this. But it’s pretty scary to think about.”


Connor Liess – freshman, history:

“I’m going to be so upset if this happens again next year.”


Nick Scarpelli – freshman, pre-med:

“Dude… if the world ended, there’d be like… NO reason to live.”
