Student Health Services Need Improvement
The situation at the health center is unacceptable: you sit in a crowded waiting room for hours waiting to get treatment for minor ailments. Then when it’s your turn, you get about three minutes
with an overworked doctor. I have two suggestions first; the health center needs to hire more doctors so that each patient receives quality treatment. And as far as the wait time issue is concerned \, the health center is currently open only Monday through Fridays, which means that people who get sick over the weekend wait until the following week to get treatment so, opening the health center on weekends should solve that problem too.
When people work in groups to perform a task, individual group members may feel less motivated to contribute, since no one person is held directly responsible for completing the task. The result is that people may not work as hard, or accomplish as much, as they would if they were working alone and their individual output were being measured. This decrease in personal effort, especially on a simple group task, is known as social loafing. While it is not a deliberate behavior, the consequence of social loafing is less personal efficiency when working in groups than when working on one’s own.
