Class becomes bothersome as my eyes become watery and itchy I can hardly maintain focus. Something as small as lawn mowing is developing into a problem for not only me, but my fellow students and faculty members as well. The problems that come of this include disruption during lecture, it is potentially harmful to students, and causes an increased risk of damage to one’s hearing due to second hand noise. The issue of mowing is something that can be easily fixed. I propose Kansas state University refrains from mowing between 7am-5pm or adjusting the locations they mow. This is an issue for many of us here at Kansas State University, but it is also one that is solvable.
