Pro: Bikes and skateboards on campus

Students should be allowed to use their skateboards and bikes on campus because it’s a mode of transportation and it’s also very efficient. They are necessary for students to get on time to their classes. Most students have a really busy schedule.

Students tend to work and go to school most of the time. Sometimes having a skateboard or a bicycle helps students get faster to their class or to a place where they need to be on campus at a certain time.

Students don’t choose the classroom of their classes, and many times the classrooms tend to be very far away from each other, and there’s only a minimum time of 5 to 15 minutes to get to the other classroom. Having to walk across campus can be very challenging and makes the transition difficult.

If a student has a class at the village and needs to get to their other class by the music room, then that student might not make it on time to their other class. Being on time for certain classes is part of a student’s grade. For some classes, having three absences can risk your enrollment in the class.

In most classes two tardies equal to one absence, and if a student has such a limited time to get to class; a skateboard or bike can help them maintain their enrollment in class. Another good thing about allowing skateboards and bikes on campus is the exercise that students can benefit from.

As the majority of California residents know, California has a massive high rate of obesity. Students have a busy and limited schedule and they barely have time to go to the gym or do some physical activity. They will rather be studying for their next exam or work to pay their tuition or bills. Allowing students to use their skateboards and bikes will not only allow them to get on time to class, but also have a healthy life style.

According to State of obesity, California’s obesity percentage has increased 15% from 1990 to 2016. According to the Health and Human services, adults should get at least 150 minutes of moderate activity or 75 of vigorous activity a week. Using a bike on campus can help students with their daily cardio and also reduce stress.

According to Time magazine, for some people, riding a bike can help reduce stress and boost their mood. Most students are stressed out due to school or by having to work all day, and deal with their personal lives.

Such things stress people out and most of the time can be hard to manage. Having a bike to ride on campus can be beneficial for students that are dealing with stress, especially when they just got out from a class. Students will at least have a few minutes to relieve their stress while riding their bikes to their next class.
