What are students saying on campus?

The Free Press asked Red River College students Wednesday about Stephanie Forsyth's departure: Does the news of her departure concern you?

"I don't think I know enough about what she has done or is doing or plans to do or planned to do, to make any kind of real judgment (and) maybe that says something -- that I don't know enough about what she's doing. To be honest, I don't know if I care all that much, and maybe that also says something. Maybe I should care a little bit more about who the president of my college is... I think the president of the college is a largely political figure. I've met her and she's really, really nice."

—Jordan Power, second-year creative communications student

"I hope things don't change. I have no idea what that means now that she's gone, I wish I knew... I love what Red River is about so I hope they don't change anything. They're an independent school and they do things a lot differently than anybody else... I didn't know anything about this."

—Lauren Wycoff, first-year business administration student

 

"I only have a year left here, so I'm not worried per se. I want more information before I hear who our next president's going to be and who they're looking at. I think (the students) should be alerted and have information because we are under their power, if you want to say."

—Breanna Vitti, second-year library and information technology student

 

"I'm not up to date with it, so I don't think I can really answer that. I remember a couple of months ago, the only thing I remember were the words "golf clubs" or something with golf shoes. That's as far as I know, and there was some issues with it. I remember a lot of that, but it kind of disappeared... and now it's just popping up...

I heard most of that in the last week."

—George Quero, second-year business information technology student

 

"Honestly, I thought that it was all resolved, the whole thing about her using college money. I thought that it turned out to be not as big of a deal and that she was respected again. I should know about it, she's our college president. I trust that Red River College will make a good decision -- it doesn't concern me. I think that there's enough people involved that they'll make a smart decision on what to do next."

—Janet Seniuk, second-year creative communications student
