NCC Common Read: Freshman Reading Experience

This common reading experience is designed to provide first-year students with a shared, enjoyable, academic experience that introduces them to an educational community where intellectual discourse is fostered and valued. The Freshman Reading Experience will promote a sense of belonging to their class and to the college community for these new students. This program will also enhance the sense of community among faculty and staff at NCC.


The Freshman Reading Experience will:

  • Assist students in their transition to a new academic environment
  • Promote the importance of critical reading, critical thinking, and reflection
  • Promote collaborative learning and discussion
  • Engage students in interdisciplinary activities to help sharpen their ability to make connections between ideas
  • Set expectations for students about college level work
