The University Honors Program piloted a Common Reader for students in Fall 2015, as all incoming first-year students joining the Program received a copy of Daniel James Brown’s The Boys in the Boat (2014) to read over the summer. We met to discuss the text in small groups with faculty, staff, and students immediately before Fall Convocation, and then had a series of events connected to the text, such as a tailgate social, service project, and luncheon with a guest speaker. The pilot was so well received that the effort was expanded across campus in 2016, when we read Matt Richtel's A Deadly Wandering; in Fall 2017, the campus choice was Wes Moore's The Other Wes Moore.
