Reflecting on yesterday’s ANTH 1460 class, Lucy Buckley ’22 reported that her professor was really going out on a limb with that “Fuck, Marry, Kill” icebreaker.
“I get that it’s nice to loosen things up a bit, but this may not have been the way to go,” said Buckley, commenting on her professor’s surprising move to have each student express their innermost carnal fantasies about one another. “I was expecting us to go around and say our favorite foods or songs, but I guess Professor Smith was a little more interested in what we’d do to each other given three life-altering options.”
“Creating an engaged scholarly community is really difficult in this virtual world, and I know we’re all doing our best,” said Buckley, wondering if she seemed a little too peppy about her ‘kill’ choice. “But I’m not so sure I want to get to know my classmates better after hearing their darkest thoughts and most erotic desires."
At press time, Buckley was reeling from the intense round of “Truth or Dare” that began the following class.
