Life of the Mind is your first assignment as a student at the University of Tennessee, and as such, you should approach the program seriously, with a willingness to study the book on your own and then join in—and learn from—discussion with others. This program not only unites the first-year class in an act of scholarship, but also sets the tone for your entire career here at UT, allowing you to develop the skills and make the connections crucial for graduation from UT and beyond.
Through reading together, we gather together to learn and pursue the life of the mind at Tennessee. Reading builds community. Reading builds the UT Freshmen Class.
