“I’m a little indifferent about it. I am worried a little bit, but not as much as everyone has been putting it out to be. Not really as much as I thought I would be.” — Cel Sanchez, Biology

“Well to be honest, I think it's kind of exaggerated on the media. I don’t actually really think that its going to be something that we should worry about yes. Personally me, I’m not that worried about it because I don’t even go out that much. There have been so many illnesses around the world like ebola and a bunch of other viruses that have happened before so if anything happens, we’re gonna get through it.” — Andrew Bonilla, Business

“Not worried because number-wise, it’s no worse than the flu. So every year we’re worried about the flu and the new flu that’s coming up so this is like the new new flu. Taking the same precautions and trying to stay healthy.” — Gabrielle Dagan, Undecided

“Pretty worried I'd say. I think that the media and everything is making it seem worse than what it is, but I think it’s something that people should actually take action and take care of themselves for. I mean it’s kind of sad that it’s come to this for people to realize that they need to be washing their hands and taking better care of themselves. But I think it’s important for people to acknowledge it.” — Cynthia Bonilla, Child Development

“I am worried because, you know, being sick sucks. I’m actually a child development major so if I get sick, then kids and older people are compromised. I’m not super worried but I’m taking the safety precautions because in reality if it did hit us we’ll be sick but it’s not going to affect us too much if your immune system is healthy.” — Lindsey Castillo, Special Education

“I’m not worried at all. Because I believe all you have to do is wash your hands. I don’t believe in the U.S. government, I think it’s more about a fear tactic so I think this was made by them and they could stop it if they wanted to. I think it’s more about being scared for the most part and thinking you’re going to get than you will get it.” Jeveontae Parrish, Information Technology

“Not too too nervous. Just stay healthy and wash your hands. Everybody gets sick so I think everybody is overreacting.” — Jasmine Vilchis, Child Development
