At our second annual Draft-a-Palooza-Let's-Crowdsource-Our-Projects-So-No-One-Freaks-Out-Rap-Sesh on November 30, 2017, a group of graduate students and faculty were collectively studious and productive for an hour. Fueled by Central Market box lunches and Nicholas Alexander Brown's peanut butter death cookies, we worked on book reviews, articles, digital course portfolios, academic portfolios, exam portfolios, seminar papers, websites, and assignment prompts. The only sounds heard were the crunching of chip-eating, the clicking of keyboards, and muted exclamations over Dr. George's metal book-holder-opener. While much work remains to be completed, an hour spent in silent solidarity and mutual productivity is always well spent. And now we have deputy badges, slinkies, and plastic dinosaurs to entertain us on much-needed brain breaks.
