Deadline for Common Reading Program suggestions is Tuesday

August 30, 2013  

Faculty, staff, students and community members have until Tuesday (Sept. 3) to suggest a book to be considered for all 2014-15 incoming undergraduate students to read before beginning their studies at Purdue. This book will be the sixth selected in Purdue's Common Reading Program.

To suggest a book, go to the Common Reading website at

The program's mission is to provide a common academic experience for all new students -- an experience that sets high academic expectations for students from the beginning of their undergraduate careers. It is co-sponsored by Student Success at Purdue and Purdue Libraries, and is funded by the Office of the Provost.

A Book Selection Committee made up of faculty, staff, and students will review book suggestions for 2014-15 during the fall term and will announce next year's selection in the spring. The book will be distributed to beginning and transfer students during the Summer Transition, Advising and Registration (STAR) program.

Questions should be directed to Yvonne Smith, Student Success at Purdue, at 49-42329 or For more information about the program, visit
