Lifelong Learning through Literature
The Summer Reading program at Rollins was created with the purpose of engaging incoming first-year students to topics of leadership and citizenship. These challenge students' conceptions of the immediate world around them and to the larger world of which we are all an integral part.
Each student will be expected to finish the book before Fall Welcome Weekend starts in August. In addition to the Summer Reading, every incoming student is required to complete a substantive response to the summer reading book. Your RCC faculty member will give you more information on this project over the course of the summer.
The 2013 summer reading book was The Reluctant Fundamentalist by Mohsin Hamid. The 2014 title will be announced in late srping 2014.
