Default University of Arizona class requires students to participate in 'Condom Olympics'

Next time a kid wnders why he has a master's and no job skills, well...Here ya go...

University of Arizona class requires students to participate in 'Condom Olympics'

Quote:
Students at the University of Arizona (UA) were assigned to plan a school-wide “Condom Olympics” for their three-credit “Sex, Health, and AIDS” class.

The students planned “athletic events such as a condom-wrapped egg toss,” according to The Daily Wildcat, the official student newspaper.

“Hopefully this will get students comfortable knowing what condoms are.” - Professor William Simmons

“Students can also see and make condom art and join a condom scavenger hunt,” the article continues.

Professor William Simmons told the newspaper that he does not like term papers or exams and prefers an “action learning assignment.”

“Hopefully this will get students comfortable knowing what condoms are,” he said.

“Sex, Health, and AIDS” is a three-credit undergraduate course which “sets out to explore this social and disease phenomenon from a number of perspectives,” according to the description on the official course listing website.

The events were part of the school’s SexTalk Week Resource Fair, which the school hosted on Wednesday, according to a Facebook event.

“Special appearance by ‘Mr. Condom,’ the giant walking condom, will occur throughout the fair,” the event states.
Thousands of dollars is student loans!...happy scavenger hunt!!!!"...

Any kid over 12 knows what a condom is and what it is for, or at least they used to. What a waste of money and time.

Why does this make the class a waste of time and money? I'm pretty the event is far from the only thing the class offers.

'condom olympics' yeah, that's a way that college age students can best use their time and minds learning about using a condom. I'm sure the concept is far to complex for them to grasps in a series of 1 minute lectures at the beginning of 2 class periods.

good move prof, righto Ace, nice way to cut down your workload and still collect a fat check. saynomore wink wink nudge nudge.

So learn by doing, not filling in bubbles.

I'm surprised the prof doesn't assign classroom orgies too. Only an idiot could defend **** like this.

The never-failing defense of the incredibly stupid. And that is your opinion that you think you're pretty and there is more to this silliness.

a fluff piece to try to turn people against student loan help and higher learning in general.

You reached this conclusion how? There is no condemnation of student loans or higher learning in general except in your hyperactive imagination.
