Welcome to the Ole Miss Common Reading Experience

Common Reading Experience
The Common Reading Experience began with the 2011-2012 school year. In this fourth year of the program, it will work very similarly to the first years. Every freshman receives a copy of the selected text at orientation to finish before the school year begins in August. Instructors from the Center for Writing and Rhetoric, Freshman Year Experience, Department of Nursing, and others then utilize the text in their classes. It allows for an enriched sense of community by all reading the text as one.

Please use this site to locate information about events, the author, or how the book will be used in the university as well as in the community. If you have any questions or would like to get involved, please contact umreads@olemiss.edu
