Since its inception in 2002, the Tulane Reading Project has created a shared intellectual experience for the entering first-year class through the reading and discussion of a selected book. With a variety of events scheduled throughout the fall semester, the Reading Project creates a campus-wide dialogue on a variety of themes.
Each summer, the entire incoming first-year class will read a common book.
During New Student Orientation, new students will discuss the book with a Tulane faculty member.
The Reading Project Keynote Lecture is an opportunity to further engage with the themes of the book.
Students will have numerous opportunities to continue to engage with the themes of the book.
