Poornima Paidipaty

Dec 2007

Nima, as she likes being called, is probably the most stylish person you will ever meet. She wore the same outfit maybe twice the whole semester. But don't let her amazing looks fool you. She's actually pretty sharp. If you like talking about ideas and being abstract this is a great class. She never really focused on moving the class forward though. She would lay out basic points and then let the class just take its course with discussion. She hands out a study guide to keep some structure to her credit. If you were a participant you had a blast, especially when you were in opposition to an author or a classmate's view because Nima allowed conversation and seemed to value everyone's input. But because the class was dominated by the talkers I'm not sure how the rest of class stayed awake.
