Honors One Read
Each year the Honors College selects an important book – fiction or non-fiction – as its One Read. The book then becomes the focal point of Honors community activities, programming, and even courses and academic units of study.The impact of these works on our students and their academic performance, cannot be understated. Students have gone on to win awards with their essays written in response to the works and meeting the authors, have changed their plans for academic study after coming into deep contact with the issues raised, and we have developed programming and courses to extend the discussions and impacts.
