Summer Reading Program

First Year Book Program

The First Year Book Program at Georgia State University provides all incoming freshmen with a common intellectual experience to stimulate discussion, promote critical thinking and develop a sense of community among first year students, faculty and staff.

All incoming freshmen will receive a copy of the selection during orientation. Students are expected to read the book before the start of their first semester. The book also will be covered in ENGL 1101 (English Composition) and in GSU 1010. Additionally, the first year book author will serve as the key note speaker for Freshmen Convocation.
