SUMMER READING BOOK DISCUSSIONS AND ASSIGNMENT

We hope you have enjoyed reading and have been challenged by Professor Kimmerer’s book of essays as much as we have. We’ve lined up a great list of facilitators to lead the book club discussions and who are looking forward to hearing your reactions and some thoughts. I know you have an assignment related to the book that needs to be completed by August 9. Most of these sessions will occur prior to the deadline and could prove really helpful as you formulate your response to the prompt.

RESIDENTIAL COMMONS COMMUNITIES

All incoming students find a home within one of four Residential Commons. Each commons is a community within which students live for their first two years — and their affiliation continues throughout their four years on campus. Last week you learned which Residential Commons will be your new home. 

 

APPLY TO BE A MEMBER OF YOUR COMMONS COUNCIL

The Commons leadership teams are looking for students who are interested and ready to take on a voluntary leadership role in creating events, experiences, and opportunities for your Commons community.
