Common Reading Program
This year, Jacksonville State University is pleased to announce Missoula, as the 2016 Common Reading Program book.
Students will study and discuss the Common Reading Program book in English Composition and First-Year Student Experience courses. The book will also serve as the catalyst for discussion in Freshman Forum and the C.O.C.K.Y. Experience through University Housing and Residence Life. The goals of Jacksonville State University’s Common Reading Program are to unite the freshman class and to promote thought and action on a variety of relevant issues by reading a common text prior to beginning the first semester of college.
In accord with this year’s selection, students will also enjoy a wide variety of events, including speakers, presentations, and service projects.
