"I think that the UNC shooting is tragic," Andres Martinez, freshman business administration and management major said. "I applied to that university before deciding to come to Georgia Southern. I believe there should be stricter gun regulations nation wide. I feel sympathy for the victims and their families and I hope they can overcome this dark time."
"It's spooky to know that your friends aren't safe at school," Natalie Harrison sophomore 3D studio art major said. "We need to advocate for some kind of gun reform to help keep this from happening again."
"It's always really sad when there are shootings on college campuses, we are always really sad when we hear that people are passing away from these kinds of shootings," Zach Palmer junior chemistry major said.
"We were actually in communication with the brothers of our fraternity on that campus, and we were worried," Kirkland Sanders senior music performance major said. "I'm relieved that none of our brothers were injured in the shooting."
