Listen Up: Is My Behavior OK?

Questions to ask yourself before engaging in any activity include:
  • Is it causing physical or emotional distress or stress of any kind to myself or others?
  • If someone got hurt, would I feel comfortable being questioned about it?
  • Would I feel comfortable participating in this activity if my parents (or others I respect) were watching?
  • Would I get in trouble if a faculty or staff member was aware of this behavior?
  • Is what I’m doing legal?
