UIC Freshman Read 2011
Freshman Read 2012
A collection of student writing
Started in 2000 through Campus Housing (and now as a partnership of The Office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Affairs, Campus Housing, The Honors College, and The University Library), the UIC Freshman Read program serves to welcome freshmen into the academic community. The program provides freshmen with shared examples of academic writing over the summer before they come to campus. Having a common reading experience before they arrive—combined with a series of events throughout the year—helps students to build connections, understand the academic culture of UIC and grow as learners.
This year's UIC Freshman Read selection combines articles from a number of Honors College publications: the Red Shoes Review, One World, Asterisk, Ampersand, and Journal of Pre-Health Affiliated Students. These articles were written by UIC students, and give a sample of the range of interests, opportunities, and talents in the UIC academic community.
We encourage you to use this book (and take part in the events throughout the year) to help you become a part of the UIC community. If you did not receive a copy of the book, you can download a copy (PDF).
