Darby Dodds's curator insight, March 4, 2014 4:58 PM

I think it's great that students are getting more involved in the world around us because it is a big thing. Do you think it's a good idea that more students are talking and discussing political issues? 

Katelynn Krook's curator insight, March 6, 2014 12:37 AM

The fact that young adults are getting into politics and taking it seriously is simply incredible. Normally students would care less. But I think it's a good thing to have everyone's point of view/ opinions out there. Do you think its a good thing students are getting more iinvolved In politics ?

Yesenia Gibson's comment, March 6, 2014 3:37 PM
I think it's great that students are getting to be more involved in politics. We will need to know these issues in the future and to be taking action in them now is really smart.
