How to Survive a Group Project

I’d thought that, maybe, I’d seen the last of group projects in high school. What a young and foolish person I was. While group projects aren’t completely terrible, in college you’re expected to meet with your group on your own time. This presents a few problems when every college student has a varied schedule.

Still, it can be a way to meet people you might not normally talk to. You just have to hope the people in your group will work hard and give strong participation.

In any case, here are some tips.

  1. Meet with your group early. Because there’s nothing worse than sitting with your group past midnight in one of the school buildings getting frustrated at one another and trying to finish the project the night before it’s due.
  2. Bring snacks to meetings. You and your group will appreciate it.
  3. Do your part well. Even if everyone else in your group doesn’t give as much effort as you, it can only help your project and just doing bare minimum won’t win you any favors.
  4. Try and pick an interesting topic to do your group project on. For your own sanity.

They’re simple tips, but I hope somebody at least finds them as helpful.
