Signs of group membership, solidarity, or isolationism in the student body As I sat down in The Brickyard today around 2:30 PM, I observed the student body as it is in daily life. From students willingly isolating themselves, to friends talking, and even the occasional fraternity or sorority walking together; The Brickyard was the place to be even in the “off time”. One of the first observations that I made was how many people willingly isolated themselves. Most cases of isolation were headphones, in which I counted 60+ in the 30 minutes that I was there; but there were a few other people that seemed like today was not their day and had that “leave me alone” look about them. Other forms of isolation, though not intentional seemed to be that of the professors and middle aged people walking around The Brickyard to and from the library. They just don’t seem to fit into the whole college “clique” at NC State. My next observation was the small groups that hang around The Brickyard.
