Hello! My name is Shuchita Poddar. I'd love to talk with you about my Knox experience.
My favorite spot on campus:
I like to sit near the big tree in front of the CFA because I can get a panoramic view of the entire campus.
Professor a new student should absolutely take a class with:
Chad Simpson. He's amazing and so funny. He's very chill and helps students with their work. He is very articulate in his responses to students' craft.
How I picked my major:
I chose to come to Knox because of the writing program. I looked at the courses offered and I knew right away that this is what interests me and this is where I want to go.
Class I never expected to love:
I took Centrality of Media with Jim Dyer and I was struggling at the beginning. However, I learned so much and liked it so much because of the readings that I decided to minor in journalism.
Best thing I've done since coming to Knox:
Made amazing friends from all over the world and fallen in love with writing even more.
