Read. Learn. Discuss.  

The Freshman Reading Program is a shared common reading experience for all new freshmen in the College of Education and Human Sciences. Each year, a new book is selected to serve as a foundation for learning and discussion that leads to vital student connections to their new community. Faculty, staff, alumni and other volunteers serve as discussion leaders and build relationships with students as a part of the program.

What to expect

Students receive their book during summer enrollment and have the opportunity to participate in peer discussions with each other and student ambassadors before classes begin. During their first-year seminar course, students meet in small discussion groups led by OSU faculty, staff and community members to share insights from the book that are important to them.
