    gemeinschaft relationships and gessellschaft relationships (Schriver, 2011). Gemeninschaft relationships are ones that are based on shared ideas; whereas, gessellchaft relationships are ones based on doing favors (Schriver, 2011). After reviewing most of the data stated in the background information about Alexandria, I believe this city uses gemenischaft relationships. Alexandria seems like a city that is based on family. Many of the community members share similar ideas, and the culture is not very diverse. For example, a majority of the population have Christian views (City-Data, 2016). This shows that they share similar traditions, such as celebrating Christmas and Easter. Over 90% of the population is white, again showing how this community is not well-diverse (City-Data, 2016). Also more than half of the registered voters in this community are republicans, which shows that they have more conservative traditions (City-Data, 2016). This community would also be considered an agricultural community, thus relating to gemenischaft relationships. Overall, this community certainly has many of the same traditions and…

(RCI) I chose the city of San Jose because I am originally from the East Bay in Northern California and I was not impressed with San Diego’s ranking where I currently reside. I also took the time to check to see how much information I could find on the city’s website about their…

    at New Life Community Development and at the St. John’s Bread and Life Mobile Soup Kitchen, I learned quite a few valuable things. When I first started my academic service learning, I went in with the attitude of getting the job done and leaving. I had no intention of enjoying the experience. Although that changed when I walked into the Mobile Soup Kitchen on a grimy Monday afternoon with a whole line of people waiting outside the truck. I immediately started to prepare for the long hours inside…

    stable society and legal system. They may bring peace because the practices need negotiation, common agreement and mutual satisfaction. I use the theory of network relations by referring Mauss’s working on gift because it has a greater moral implication in the contemporary socio-political activities. His work cannot be oversimplified as a romanticization of a primitive society or non-market society. In modern societies, people do not always maximize their individual gain in some way, but they…

    Determining what would best help me create a community on my floor took time. I learned that keeping my door open and engaging in conversation with residents whenever possible – in the dining hall, while brushing teeth, or even in passing around campus – really helped to establish relationships. Forming an interest survey early on in the semester was helpful in planning activities with higher attendance rates. For example, through the survey, I was able to determine that the majority of my…

    eternally been built for connection.
