rooibos Posted August 28, 2010 Share Posted August 28, 2010 (edited) So, I just started my first week of grad school, and in all my courses, there is required group work. Some of it seems to be kind of low-pressure, but others are a lot more intense, requiring weekly meetings. My classes are also mostly mixed undergrad/grad classes, and it's expected that groups will be mixed-level, too. I try really hard to schedule my reading and homework to leave my weekends free to spend with my wife, because we don't get to spend too much time together during the week. After spending a year apart from her, I feel that it's really important to do this, and in general, it seems to be a good policy. Even if I do have reading or homework to do during the weekends, I think that spending my weekends at home with her (rather than going to the library to study) works better for us. Do you guys feel that it's appropriate for me to make this clear to my group partners from the outset? I'm fine with people coming to my place to work, and I'm more than fine with working with people's schedules during the week. I just feel like a douchebag for saying that I really don't want to come to campus on the weekends if it can be avoided at all. Edited for clarity!
