Common reading book is coming your way

Your copy of the 2017 common reading book, Lafayette in the Somewhat United States, by Sarah Vowell, should be arriving in the mail shortly. Students are encouraged to read this book, as it will serve as a basis for programs and discussions beginning at orientation and continue throughout your first semester. You’ll also hear from the author at Fall Convocation, Wednesday, Aug. 30 at 4:30 p.m. at Severance Hall.

International students can access the electronic version of Lafayette in the Somewhat United States through the common reading item on the New Student Checklist.
