Yesterday, some company came in to pass out free samples of Edge Shave Gel. While it was nice to see faces light up at the prospect of free samples, it was not as nice to see the said gel all over the mini quad, the trash can near the commons, and, yes, even on some cars in the parking lot. I’m not sure whose idea it was to allow these samples to be handed out, but whoever it was obviously was not thinking about the maturity level of 19 year olds.
This brings another question to mind: how are companies given authorization to pass out samples of products? This is not the first time I have seen fellow students walking about with travel sized toiletries. Do companies just come into school with boxed of things to give to students? Technically anything could be in those boxes so is it really safe?
