Etiquette lessons

In an attempt to teach courtesy, Onondaga Community College in Syracuse is launching the “Create Change” campaign, reports Daniel Luzer on Washington Monthly’s College Guide.

It’s not exactly salad forks and finger bowels, however. The Onondaga campaign appears to target only smoking in prohibited places, spitting, littering, and double parking. A student-produced video, explains the problem with students’ “habits that suck.”

“Bad language” also is included. “Sucks” apparently doesn’t count.

If people haven’t learned to treat others with respect by the time they’re old enough for community college, it’s hard to believe a video with people repeating the same phrases will do it.  But, watch it and decide for yourself.
