With a little help for my friends

Exams are mere weeks away and you are employing laser-like focus on LEARN, your textbooks, review sheets, and paying close attention to your class lectures, labs and classes.

Take a moment to look up from your notes and devices to notice your peers: those who have worked beside you in the lab, spent countless hours with you on your Entrepreneur Project or co-authored your Cre Comm magazine. Thinking of your own cohort, have you ever asked yourself:

“How can I help others when I barely have time for myself?”

Let’s answer your questions by looking at a common tactic in group cycling – ‘drafting.’  The science behind drafting is that it tampers the biggest enemy for a cyclist: wind resistance. You see, one way to get around wind resistance is to fall into the slipstream, or draft zone of the cyclist in front of you. This person drastically reduces the effort you need to push through the wind. The first rider of course works the hardest to shoulder the wind, using about a third more energy than you.
