Event: Class 2014 Community Event --- Video of 8/29 Address (only available on campus)

Sunday, August 29, 1:30 p.m.
Foy Hall, Hurd Campus

This event features Da Chen, author of Colors of the Mountain, the first-year common reading, followed by a booksigning. The Moravian College Common Reading Program for first-year students is an integral part of the first-year academic experience and a component of the Introduction to College Life course. Since the beginning of the Learning in Common Curriculum, the course Introduction to College Life has included a summer common reading. This reading serves as a backdrop for in-class discussion during Orientation weekend and a lecture by the author of the text. The activities related to the common reading help to place an appropriate academic experience in the midst of other community building activities associated with First-Year Orientation. The Common Reading is intended to stimulate discussion, elicit differences of opinion, and to help first-year students to adapt to college-level thinking, writing, and speaking. The Common Reading marks the beginning of the process of purposeful intellectual inquiry.
