I noticed my classmate was struggling to adjust to life in a new city. I asked them if they wanted to talk about it.
I was walking through the park and saw someone harassing another student, making them uncomfortable. I walked up to the student and started talking to them like we were friends. The stranger walked away.
I was out with friends one night and noticed that one of them had a lot to drink. I suggested we leave the bar to get food.
If someone is in danger or risk of harm, I would want to help.

Talk about a time when you were worried about a friend or peer. How did you respond?
I was in a group meeting and one of the group members made a racist remark. I spoke up and asked the person to be more thoughtful about their language.
I was at a party. My friends and I noticed a group taking a photo of someone while they were passed out. Some of my friends laughed, but no one said anything.
I have a friend who I believe is struggling with an eating disorder. I haven't talked to my friend about it yet because I don't know what to say.
Your roommate Sandra is in a relationship. Recently, her partner has been texting her constantly when they’re apart, which makes Sandra uncomfortable. Her partner gets jealous and possessive over her. What could you do?
I recently went through a break-up from a year-long relationship. All of my friends keep telling me that I'll be fine, but no one has actually asked how I'm dealing with it.
I was at a party after a long week. I didn't have much for dinner and had several drinks. I started talking to someone at the party and almost left with them, but my friend intervened and convinced me to go home with my friends.
I'm a member of a club on campus. A few members have started teasing me about the food I bring to our meetings. I really wish someone would speak up and tell them to stop.
