The Juniata chapter of Colleges Against Cancer sponsored several events for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, including the Pink Ribbon Banquet, Boobie Bingo, and a bra fashion show. The activities were for a good cause, but students had mixed opinions on the tastefulness of the events:

Charlene Granier Lille, France:
It was really good. I knew about breast cancer before, so it was not new, but it was interesting.
Abbey Servello ’14 Altoona, Pa.:
It’s ridiculous. It’s just objectifying women. It’s not about breast cancer awareness anymore.
Tom Jordan ’14 Derwood, Md.:
I thought they were quite tasteful. Especially the bra show. That was good fun.
Zachary Lemon ’14 New Bloomfield, Pa.:
I don’t think it’s helpful. Everyone’s aware of breast cancer. I didn’t think it was distasteful, it was just a waste of time. I think it’s pretty disrespectful toward women.
