What better way to connect new students than through a common book?

Each year, a faculty committee selects a new Common Reading book that aligns with the year’s Ethics theme.  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. A

The 2019-2020 Ethics Theme and Common Reading will be announced soon.  Please check back.
