  1. Get off your phone. I can’t tell you how sad it makes me to see students waiting before classes or leaving them with their noses stuck to personal screens. Those used to be the best times for casual conversations, but it seems everyone’s anxiously & awkwardly avoiding those now.

    1. I agree with the first two commenters.

      I’d like to challenge ANY group on campus to start something unheard of…A WEEK OFF YOUR PHONE. Of course you can use it when you need to for appts or school stuff, but IF YOU’RE WALKING, YOU’RE TALKING. IF YOU SAT,THEN CHAT. It needs to be a campus wide effort. Just think of the publicity BU would garner if this happened. If students would really try this, the benefits would be e less. I truly believe that mental health issues could plummet.

      Come on BU Clubs, Organizations, Student Government.
