Rolling or trolling? Scooters are back!

Senior softball player Ally Valdez started the trend of scooter-riding on the softball team this year. Valdez’s scooter—which she painted black and dubbed ‘Batman’—gets her from point A to point B all around campus. Some of her teammates have spray painted their scooters to match their personal taste; some even have light-up wheels.

“It’s more fun than walking,” Valdez said. “Walking is boring.”

The campus seems to have caught the scooter bug. But are they safe modes of transportation? One softball player, Faith Roberts, recently wiped out on her scooter on the hill by the parking garage.
