(Entry #3 in the series) Recently, I had the great pleasure of sitting down with Associate Director for Outreach and Development Programming for CAPS and all-around nice guy Gary Glass. The topic: relationships. Relationships in general, with no particular person in mind. It was the first time I'd discussed the topic at length, ever. My conclusion? We should do this more often. Here's #3! Read entries #1 and #2.
It was 2007. Gary stood with a group of students, asking them to move to the “True” or “False” side of the room in response to a few statements.
If a peer had been struggling, you’d want them to know they could come to you.
Everyone in the room moved to “True” side of the room.
If you were struggling, you would go to a peer for support.
Everyone in the room moved to the “False” side of the room.
Well that’s awkward. Everyone wanted to help. No one wanted to ask for help.
