As I was working on the computer I could hear an altercation between students and it seemed to be quickly escalating as the student yelled to the other, you ran into me, you need to apologize now. As I looked up from my desk and out the window I could see the yelling student push the other male student. I got up from my desk and left my office and approached to the two gentlemen asking if there was a problem and could we calm down a minute. Then I noticed all the other people in the atrium watching us and filming. I think anytime you can intervene and bring calm to a situation you should speak up. Sometime just recognizing the situation and inserting yourself will help divert attention and lower tensions.
