The Orientation common reading brings students and faculty together for an intellectual experience like those that occur both inside and outside the classroom at SCU. As a part of Orientation you will join your classmates and faculty discussion leaders in a conversation about the readings and about the parallels to your own experiences that you find in them. You should be prepared to discuss this common reading with other students in your Residential Learning Community (RLC) during Orientation.
Instructions for the common reading:
The common reading consists of the following (click on the links to view the readings):
