BLACKWOOD – Cafeteria officials restrict larger group seating in Camden County College’s Cyber Café when there is a violation of the code of conduct.

“Campus Safety separated my friends and I while we were all sitting together,” said Serina Swiderski, 21, a second-year student at Camden County College. “There were 10 of us in one area of the cafeteria when one of the security guards asked us to move away from each other. He said that we were making too much of a ruckus and disturbing others and must be separated.”

The rules of the code of conduct of the Cyber Café state that it is “imperative” that you be considerate of others who are studying and follow all of the Camden County College civility guidelines as outlined in the student handbook. It goes on to say that anyone who fails to abide by these guidelines may face “disciplinary action.”

These rules and regulations of the Cyber Café are also featured on every table in the cafeteria so students will know what they must follow when they are sitting.

“These rules should be followed and abided by,” said Daniel Bitterman, 22, a second-year student at Camden County College. “If a group of people are too rowdy and noisy, I’m hoping they do get separated because they’re very inconsiderate of everyone around them. When I sit with more than just a couple people in the cafeteria, we keep our noise at an appropriate level and Campus Safety has no problem with us being together.”

Camden County College’s student handbook states that all rules and guidelines must be enforced to ensure fairness among students. It also states that “it is the responsibility of all members of the academic community to maintain an atmosphere in which violations of rights are unlikely to occur.”
