Beyond the Classroom, the student element of ThinkAchieve, is for students who participate in and reflect on experience-based and applied learning. The opportunities offered here include some of the most remarkable experiences offered at UTC, in the Chattanooga area and around the world. As you participate and reflect, you gain points towards university awards and recognition.
Visit the Events section and Experiences section for step by step guides on two ways you can earn points: through attending and reflecting on events and through proposal and reflection on extended learning experiences.
Also, check out the new side tab on Beyond the Classroom Course Sections, which you will see designated in the Spring 2014 class schedule. These courses introduce a third way of earning the ThinkAchieve graduation distinction.
You may also see the Points and Awards section for information about the point values for the different types of experiences, as well as what kind of awards are earned through points.
Finally, check out the Media page to see photos and videos of events, as well as feedback from students on events they attended.
