What better way to connect new students than through a common book?
Each year, a faculty committee selects a new Common Reading book for the fall semester. An electronic copy of the book will be loaded onto student iPads and will be an integral part of classwork during Institute class sessions. The book is then incorporated into First Year Colloquium and Writing Seminar courses.
A Common Reading experience is often seen as a great way for new students to embark upon the intellectual challenges of the college experience. At Hiram College, we select a Common Reading book that is in line with the year’s ethics theme.
The 2018-2019 Theme and Book will be announced in Spring 2018.
