The University of Kentucky's Common Reading Experience is a collaborative effort between New Student and Parent Programs, Student Affairs, Undergraduate Education, and other campus partners and is designed to introduce new students to academic life at the University. The goal is two-fold: first, to bring new students together for a common reading experience that introduces them to academic discourse prior to the start of classes; and second, to engage the entire UK community in a common intellectual experience through year long programming.View details
