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. Students will receive their books at Orientation. They should read the book throughout the summer, and be ready to discuss it upon Move-in Day. 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.
