“In many ways, JSLH has been an awakening for me that saved me too. I made the decision to pursue Liberal Arts at the last moment. And now I believe that it was the best decision I ever made. JSLH liberated me. The faculty and peers here inspired me to think for myself, experiment and become comfortable in my own skin. From being a schoolgirl who was on the verge of following the herd, JSLH helped me realize a lot about myself, my passions and ambitions. Today, as I sit in another prestigious institution in the country, I attribute my success in my journey here to my time in JSLH.”

“Studying Liberal Arts from an experiential learning approach at Jindal University, set the foundation for my interest in experimental research, especially in psychology. As I am currently pursuing my MSc in Behavioural Science from LSE, I continue to apply an interdisciplinary approach towards what I learn, which has helped me become a critical thinker.”
