Binghamton University is excited to continue the Common Read Experience for all incoming first-year students. The program helps students gain new perspectives on the most important issues of our days, learn how to engage in constructive dialogue and debate and acclimate to the intellectual life of a premier university. The Common Read also enables students to build connections to the campus community through talks and programming over the summer, and participate in activities and events throughout the fall.
The bulk of common read programming will take place in person during B-Welcome Week and will continue throughout the fall semester, providing a chance for all new students to participate. While we hope everyone joins us, this program is highly recommended but not mandatory.
