Discussion: As the second writing project of the semester comes to a close it’s only natural to delve a little deeper in the form of a group discussion about the outcome of the paper, the topics chosen, and the details each one of us incorporated with our essays. With the discussion it’d be preferred if we were to talk about the topics presented to us for the essays, mainly Education beyond the classroom as it seems a good number of us had decided to form our projects off the topic however if someone wants to talk about another topic, perhaps the one they selected then this is alright.

As a student what drives me to learn is my future. I feel that how I act now will have a significant reflection on what my career and family will be like. Furthermore, if I am responsible with my homework and classes, it will transfer to my career and family. The best way we learn is to learn through what techniques are best for us as individuals. As Percy discusses in his passage, I feel the best way we learn is to see and experience academics in our way, whether it be the beaten path or the path unchosen.
Topic: Today in class we talked about the “educational packages” that teachers give to students. Percy says that in these educational packages there is only a small part of it that is intended to be learned. How do we find this piece of learning? What educational packages have we seen in our own learning experiences?
Where: Tables outside University Hall
Time: 9:30 am, Thursday

Walker Percy talks about the Pre-formulated Symbolic Complex by which we learn about things, and ascribe meaning to them, in context through words, naming, association. And therefore lose the experience because our brains mess us up. Have you had a situation where before experiencing something new, you heard about it or got some second hand description, and then your experience turned out different than expected? If so how do we solve the problem of P.S.C?
Location Frederick Douglass statue Sat at 3pm
Topic: In this weeks discussion group we will talk again about “The Loss of the Creature” by Percy.

We will talk about the benefits of not taking the shortcut or beaten track and opinions if we should take the shortcut way.
Location:@ Main Hall 300 Friday at 10am
