Collectives and Category Groups

By Katherine W

Collective groups usually larger groups of people coming together for one cominality. It can range anywhere from watching fireworks in a crowd of people for the fourth of July or coming together to protest against something you and others believe in. You may be strangers but all come together for one common denominator.

Category groups  are individuals who are similar to one another in some way. It can be large groups like what political party you are in, individually you are all different but your views of government are the same. We as students are a category group, we are all Blue Golds, Eau Claire unites us as a group. Category groups can also have negatives such as ‘smokers’ or ‘non-smokers’ and you can comingle within these groups.
