  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]
  • A Theatrical Rivalry with Love and Despair
    By Jay Grummel If We Were Villains has a way of making the horrifics acts of rivals and the blurry line of morals poetic. At first glance I didn’t think I’d enjoy this book as much as I did, especially with the amount of times it quoted Shakespeare. However, after diving into this dark academic […]

Group projects painful, needed

Group projects.

You love them, hate them and have to deal with them. Some professors avoid them and other professors act like it’s the best thing in the world.

While in theory it’s a good way for students to learn how to work well with others, it’s hard to do while in college. Some students just have to worry about class, while others have to worry about the commute outside of the general area and some students have jobs to get themselves through school.

At times, it becomes difficult for students to find time outside of class to meet, so everything is done through emails and text messages, while some go ahead and meet in person, even though parts of the group can’t meet or it’s only for a short period of time.

Sometimes, nothing gets done. Or it’s very productive—either way, it can be time consuming.

Then, there are group projects for online classes. For some reason, this seems like a good idea, even though it’s a challenge to get some people to respond to emails and messages, causing more problems than it’s worth.

For a bunch of students, the experience from working in a group setting doesn’t come from in class experience, but from working side jobs in food services and or retail, if not through internships or co-ops for their majors.

The few jobs I’ve held down for the past couple of years have taught me how to work with other people, not group projects that cause more stress than it’s been worth.
