Student Profile - Ajit Chittambalam
humanities seminars in the freshman year of UHON really provided
me with a mindset and an approach to my intellectual life that
has made all the difference to my experience at UTC. Usually,
for small, rigorous and discussion-centered seminars, many students
need to wait till their upper-level classes in their majors,
whereas I was exposed to it as soon as I started college. The
curriculum and ideas of the freshman humanities seminars introduces
a way of looking at the world that tries to incorporate different
viewpoints and create a framework for making connections. It
helped me understand better how everything I encounter is a part
of a process, itself located in history.
"So how has this helped me reinvent myself?
