The First-Year Reading Experience

The 22nd annual First-Year Reading Experience was held for the class of 2019 on August 17, 2015 in the Colonial Life Arena. Approximately 5,000 students and 400 discussion leaders and University 101 student leaders were welcomed by Dr. Helen Doerpinghaus, Senior Vice Provost and Dean of Undergraduate Studies and heard from the author of Where’d You Go, Bernadette, Maria Semple.

Following an engaging presentation and a period of Q & A, students gathered in small groups with their Discussion Leaders in seminar classrooms across campus to continue discussing the book and its relevance to the collegiate experience.
