The First-Year Book Program at Georgia State University aims to provide all incoming freshmen with a common intellectual experience to stimulate discussion, to promote critical thinking, and to develop a sense of community among first-year students, faculty, and staff.
All incoming freshmen will receive a copy of the selection during Incept; students are expected to read the book before the start of their first semester. The book will also be covered in Engl 1101 - English Composition and in GSU 1010 - New Student Orientation. Additionally, the first-year book author will serve as the key note speaker for Freshmen Convocation.
