“I usually don’t keep it because I don’t think it’s as important as I did back then [when I set it].”
-Angie Contreras, freshman


“Yes, I do. But I don’t tend to do them because I get lazy or I just don’t feel like doing it.”
-Moesha Findley, sophomore


“No, I don’t sadly. I feel as if they are an empty way of making oneself feel motivated for something, only to not follow through with it later on.”
-Tyler Bui, junior


“Yes, I usually have New Year’s resolutions involving saving money and I usually do follow up with them because I really like money.”
