“I use protection to help prevent the spread of disease and you should, too. Wear a mask, practice social distancing, and most importantly: Protect the pack.” – Sofia Handzy
“I know it might get old being constantly reminded to wear a mask and social distance, but these are some of the easiest ways we can protect each other and the community. There’s no room for selfishness in a pandemic.” – Eric Prussman

“I wear a mask because it is something small in my daily routine I can change that can help protect the people around me, and so that one day we might all get to finally go and see the concerts that have been canceled for COVID.” – Katherine Kenney
“I do what I can to protect the pack so we can get things ‘back to normal’ as fast as possible, so we can all have the Northeastern experience we were hoping for when we applied.” – Dee Williams

“I wear a mask to protect NU students on campus, but especially to protect the residents of Northeastern’s surrounding neighborhoods. Their health is dependent on the huge influx of college students doing their part, and wearing a mask is a small gesture that we can do to keep our communities safe.” –  Umin Jalloh
“As a member of E board on the Entrepreneurs Club, and especially for the Husky Startup Challenge, I want the students to be able to have those collaborative group discussions and networking opportunities that are somewhat difficult to do virtually and asynchronously. Also, since I’m often patriotic, I usually wear my American flag mask as a way to wear something unique around campus.’’ – Matt Swenson
