name is Adam Neil and I am a college student in America. Though
my parents are from America, I grew up in Asia. That has given
me a unique perspective of life in American college. I hope
that these short episodes can give you a feeling for life as
a college student in America.
Professors in college often have students do group discussions as homework. In
one of the classes I took, we were required to discuss a book in groups of four,
then write a report and give it to the professor. When my group had the
discussion one night, it almost turned into a fight.
During our discussion, we started arguing about one of the ideas in the book,
two of us agreed with the author, while the other two disagreed. Although the
idea wasn't very important, for some reason, we all argued strongly. We started
yelling at each other, and almost even started fighting.
We soon realized how foolish we were acting and all stopped. We finished the
discussion quietly and wrote the report. The next day we all laughed at how
foolish our argument was.
