2016 Common Reading Program

The Common Reading Program is an opportunity for new students to engage in an academic experience with the PLU community. During New Student Orientation, incoming students will meet with a faculty member, a New Student Orientation Guide, and their peers to discuss the Common Reading book and learn strategies for academic success at PLU. The 2016 Common Reading book is We Need New Names by NoViolet Bulawayo.

PLU community members are welcome to check out a copy of the Common Reading book at the Mortvedt Library.

Sept. 5 there will be a series of small group discussions, followed by a faculty panel as part of New Student Orientation.
