The First-Year Reading Experience
The 20th Annual First-Year Reading Experience was held on Monday, August 19, 2013 in the Carolina Coliseum. During summer orientation, students were provided a copy of the 2013 selection, The Postmortal by Drew Magary.
The book included a Reflections After Reading Guide to help students prepare for small group discussions that took place at the First-Year Reading Experience.
On the morning of the event, all first-year students gathered at the Carolina Coliseum at 8:30 am, and Dr. Helen Doerpinghaus, Vice Provost and Dean of Undergraduate Studies, welcomed everyone and this year's keynote speaker was the author of The Postmortal, Drew Magary. Following the keynote session, students participated in small group discussions of the text.
