On April 3rd at 6 pm, the Leavitt Center hosted an event called “Let’s Taco ‘Bout It.” The event was open to all students, Cafe Rio was served and different topics were presented to discuss.
The room was packed, and students crowded in the back to be part of the discussion. The event was lively and loud, and there was never a lull in the discussion.
Madilynn Backus, a nursing major and freshman at SUU, said about the event, “There was just an awesome social atmosphere, lots of opinions, and great food.”
The first topics discussed were specific to SUU. Online vs. face-to-face classes was debated. The majority of the students said that they preferred face-to-face classes. One student said, “Face-to-face classes help keep me focused and convince me not to procrastinate assignments. My online classes, I forget about.” Another brought up her opinion that face-to-face classes help students network.
“Unnecessary” General Education classes and the EDGE program was also brought up. The general consensus regarding the EDGE project was that the idea is good, and that experience really can be gained. However, most students were on board with the idea that the classes should be condensed down to just one class.
The discussion moved quickly, with only one or two minutes spent on each topic. As the night went on, the topics moved to less serious topics, like pop-culture.
The positive and negative aspects of both Netflix and Hulu were discussed, as well as students’ views on if they preferred Cardi B. or Nicki Minaj, as well as many other topics.
The event offered an atmosphere to offer opinions and viewpoints in a low-stress setting.
