“I don’t think cellphones must be banned on campus. The student must be taught to use them more responsibly. As for the students we always use our phone during breaks.”

“I don’t think a ban is going to prevent students from using their cellphones on campus. It will only further provoke students to use it. The students must be taught to be more disciplined.”

“Cellphones are an inevitable part of one’s life. I have found that students always mute their phones and use it only when necessary. The college management must repose faith in students.”
