FM Students Share Views on Civility

November 18, 2013

Student Joshua DiMezza presented his views on civility with the premise being to try to put yourself into someone else’s head. He gave the example of perhaps being late for class and the car ahead of you is driving slowly. Rather than honk incessantly, imagine that person is elderly and can’t see very well or it’s someone having a bad day and they may not be focusing clearly. The theme of thinking of others first was well presented.

The Civility Committee and Think Peace Club sponsored a Civility Showcase in Raiders Cove on-campus. Students were encouraged to participate in any form they wished to show what civility means to them. Individuals and groups took the stage to act, read a poem, sing a song, or simply state their idea of civility.
