Anonymous36 Posted October 4, 2015 Share Posted October 4, 2015 Hi All,I would like to ask you for your advice regarding an issue that is currently happening at my university. What would be the best approach to dealing with being obviously rejected by my peers in my program ? It wouldn't matter so much if there wasn't so much group work involved, also the coordinator want it to be a tight group but they apparently don't mind that they do not include me...True, I feel like a bit like an alien for many reasons: I'm much older with a background in the arts/music industry which has nothing to do with my current topic. I think that they decided that they couldn't relate to me and pushed me to the side...The thing is, I really love the topic, but I've been through a lot emotionally for the past couple of years and don't need to be under more pressure than needed because of my class; this is a very challenging program. When I noticed that they were ignoring me, not inviting me to their events etc...I gave them the benefit of the doubt by pretendind that nothing happened and showed even more interest in them but...they don't seem to want to make the effort. I have a thick skin but I think that I should be able to enjoy my study program without being bullied for obscure reasons. It's not good for them and for me. I wonder if i should just quit and find another program or stick to it while ignoring them outside of group work...Any advice? Thank you. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
