How to Survive Group Projects…for Someone Who Hates Group Projects


I HATE group projects. As in pure, seething hatred. They’re just so awkward! There’s always one person who does no work, but who no one will confront; one ridiculously annoying know it all that tries to control everything; and, in the end, one¬†uncomfortably¬†read aloud PowerPoint presentation. The second a professor says we’ll be working in groups, I’m literally filled with dread.

Unfortunately, group projects are unavoidable. I managed to go without any last year, but I”m sure my luck will run out soon, which is why I’ve formulated a simple must-do guide to group projects.
