ASU student Gabrielle Hall said the university represents “so much more than what that fight was, and at the end of the day we’re a family, things happen.”

History major at ASU Jami Eubanks agreed:

“It doesn’t affect the school, and it doesn’t affect who we are, because, you know, we have leadership and character and sometimes we all fall short. They’re young kids, they’re growing up, but they’ll learn.”
