I have learned the skill of networking, along with many other valuable skills in my past few years of being at York College. What made me think...
One of my biggest pet peeves is working with people in class that have absolutely no input in the discussion or assignment. It is so simple to pay attention during class to really understand what you are required to do.. So why is this so hard for some people? It is very ironic that this happened in my Sociology class today. You’re learning about social behaviors, however some do not even...
