FYS Summer Reading

Over the summer, each First-Year Seminar student is asked to read a text chosen by the FYS faculty the previous spring.  While the books vary greatly in theme, genre and style from year to year, they all aim to engage students with literature that challenges their world views and introduces them to college level reading and ideas.  This year, the FYS text is Nobel-Prize winner Toni Morrison’s Sula, a powerful novel that engages race, gender, notions of family and friendship through beautifully written prose.
