Campus Flow: Interdisciplinary project examines the effects of water— or the lack thereof.

This year at Grossmont College there is a campus-wide theme to bring students from all different disciplines together. The overall theme this year is water. Most students might remember the “Emperor of all Maladies” events of “One Book, One Campus” from last year; it has been changed to a more universal “One Theme, One Campus” this year. Students can all relate to water because it’s such an important yet relatable topic and resource that is used every day in everyone’s lives. The overview of this project according to the website (grossmont.edu/water)  is to broaden studies and “to be given the opportunity to re-explore the ‘water’ theme from different disciplinary perspectives, assignments and projects.”

So far this semester there are two different types of “assignments” to get involved in: One was the movie screening of “Flow” that took place in the Griffin Gate Sept. 16 and 17, during which students from different classes wrote down questions they had about the film and compared answers to students from other scholastic categories. The second assignment is to attend the “Water Fair” on Nov. 3 and 4, where students will present a poster board or any creation based from the different categories, which are: social justice, conservation, artistic expression and practical application. The students will then set up booths with their presentations and compete to see whose is best.
