1) What do you think about graffiti on campus? Is grafitti art or vandalism?
A: I feel like it's a expression of art, but it certain places it can be vandalism. But mainly I feel it's people expressing themselves, maybe in an inappropriate way.
2) Have you seen graffiti on campus? If so, where?
A: I've seen it on campus but usually in bathrooms or under parking garages. That's where I've seen it mostly. And I haven't really seen it anywhere out in public, exposed to everybody.
3) How do you think graffiti on campus should be handled?
A: I feel like if it's out where everybody can see it then it should be handled with charges. I just don't feel like there is any reason to mess up our campus. It's a nice campus.
4) What are some positive aspects of graffiti?
A: I'm from Laredo so we have a lot of really Hispanic expressions so everyone will express themselves on walls, like usually it's their own place, like stores and they post stuff up. I know in San Antonio they have a bunch of them on Caesar Chavez. Some people just want to represent other people in a different way so they do it on the walls.
