(responses AFTER going through the conduct process)

Something that is there to help create better choices rather than forcing them.

Friendly understanding environment that allows the student to be more growing, open, free.

When you make a violation, the meeting will essentially be about one taking responsibility as well as learning their mistakes and even hearing one's story.

What surprised you when completing your sanctions?

The sanctions were pretty easy to complete, however this experience has taught me a bunch of new things.
