How does the school plan on addressing what some call “The Great Vape Epidemic”. If you enter any bathroom at HSE, it is likely that you will encounter VAPERS (Very Astray People Exhaling Repulsive Smoke). The smell is the first indicator that VAPERS lurk nearby. Once you turn the corner, its almost certain that you’ll see multiple VAPERS. They operate in packs so it’s very rare that you’ll only see one. Their language is very complex and involves phrases such as: “Bro, let me get that” or “Do you have it dude?”. If you’re lucky enough, you may even find yourself as a witness to a vape transaction. The school needs to focus on problems that actually exist, which it seems they have a hard time labeling. In this case, one possible solution is not constant staff presence in the bathrooms, but rather a random check every so often. After all, the only reason VAPERS exist in the school is because Shen makes sure not to catch them.
