THE PURPOSE of SRU’s Summer Reading Program is to orient new students to our academic community by having a common reading experience with fellow classmates, faculty, staff, and upper-class students.
THE GOAL of the summer reader is to engage students in discussions, projects, and co-circular activities generated by a one-book experience.
· The Summer Reading Program will be introduced to both students and parents at the March, April and June Orientation Sessions where the book will be distributed to all new freshmen.
· A presentation will take place as part of our new freshman Weekend of Welcome (WOW).
· Carry-over into the fall 2011 semester will take the form of further discussion and assignments in FYRST Seminar and other courses as well as projects and co-curricular activities by interested departments, organizations and residence halls.
