Back To College: A series of discussions with professionals on how they would approach college differently if they were to do it all over again, while also telling students how to make the most out of their college life, and to avoid the mistakes which they made.

As a part of the BTC series, we were elated to welcome Siddharth Deshmukh, aka the Travelling Professor, for a chat on the virtual campus of GIPE. 

In this talk, Siddharth spoke about all things college which included the essence of college life, the importance of a community, professors being content creators, having skin in the game, the power of a fantastic teacher and using the internet for personal growth- to name a few!

With several ‘yes, I can totally relate with the speaker’ moments lasting for the entire talk, the students couldn’t agree more with him- here are some memorable and relatable moments:

  • “Zoom has become the most expensive Netflix”
  • “Professors are content creators and that a great Professor can make you interested in anything!”
  • “Come up with a Statement of Purpose that inspires you daily!”

 ‘Hooked’, a book by Nir Eyal and Robert Sapolsky’s Lecture Series are the recommendations given by Siddharth in this talk!
