Error Messages Appearing in Class Design

I am attempting to write a C# class that will be used in addition to several other smaller classes to make up a larger business entity. I have written a sample class, and I am getting error messages before I run the code when I am attempting to design it. I am receiving the following error messages below. I have attached the sample class that I have written for my one part of my structure below the errors. Could someone help me figure out why I am receiving the error messages when I am attempting to design the basic class? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The problem is that you are using the same names for datamembers and property names

        private string groupNumber;
        public string groupNumber
        {
            get { return this.groupNumber; }
            set { this.groupNumber = value; }
        }

So how does the compiler know whether the bolded line is referring to the field or the property. Try changing the names for dataMembers like

        private string _groupNumber;
        public string groupNumber
        {
            get { return this._groupNumber; }
            set { this._groupNumber = value; }
        }

OR you can just let the compiler emit fields automatically. Delete all datamembers and change your Properties to

        public string groupNumber
        {
            get;
            set;
        }

The compiler will see that you want it to use vanilla wrappers and supply fields to back.

Without really digging through all that code (not my favorite task), I would suggest that any ambiguity errors are based on the fact that the compiler could resolve multiple classes with the same methods and signature.  That can be overcome by fully qualified the namespace, or removing any using statements that create the conflict.
