The average age for college students is rising. ?At both Harvard and Notre Dame the average age is [sic] now 27. The University of Phoenix, which offers both online and traditional degree programs, has an average student age of 35-37? (n.a., 2009, pg. 1, para. I).

What have you someone will always be judgmental of another's sexual preference in the work place. Some will even be harassed to the point that they quit the job. It's not fair, and according to the United States there are no laws at current time, that cover sexual orientation Discrimination in the workplace. [...]


[...] A way to see that can also be found in how well they help and communicate with the team to complete the assignments. These ways are; they do not post in the team forum often if at all in the academic week. They do not volunteer for portions, it is a hassle to contact them to get an update on their work and they never edit or revise their own work.
