Summer Reading

Class of 2018

Summer Reading Assignment




The summer reading program is a tool used by many colleges and universities around the country to initiate campus-wide conversations around issues of power, privilege and social class.  This year's text was selected by members of the First Year faculty and campus administrators and will be discussed during Orientation and in your Learning Communities.

We are excited that this year’s summer reading text is Justice: What’s the Right Thing to Do, by Michael Sandel. This books offers a rare education in thinking through the complicated issues and controversies we face in public life today.  Below please find a link to ten questions, you are required to respond in essay form to at least four of them as a pre-orientation reading assignment. This assignment is due on August 3, 2014, and will be shared with your faculty in your learning communities and viewed as an official sample of your writing.
