ThinkAchieve is a platform for experiential learning at UTC. Our students participate in and reflect on some of the most remarkable experiences offered at UTC, in the Chattanooga area and around the world. As students participate and reflect, they gain points towards university awards and recognition while simultaneously acquiring vital experience for life.
