Common Reading

Welcome to TCU! Over the next few years, you will discover many traditions that form an essential part of the TCU experience. The Common Reading Program—a shared learning experience for all incoming students—is one of those traditions. Through interactive group discussions led by world-class faculty and staff, the Common Reading offers your first glimpse into the TCU learning community.

2020 Common Reading Information

Thank you for your support of the Common Reading program, unfortunately, we have decided not to have a book or formal Common Reading for the summer of 2020. We will continue the Common Reading program in 2021.

Suggestions for the Future

The committee would love your suggestions for future Common Reading titles.  Please submit your recommendation and explanation as to why it should be considered to commonreading@tcu.edu.  The TCU Common Reading Committee meets in early fall to begin the process of title selection for the following summer.

Faculty/Staff Information

Thank you for your interest and support of the Common Reading program. Given the current circumstances and modifications the university must make in August, we have decided not to have a book or formal Common Reading discussion this year. Our plan is to continue the Common Reading program next fall.

Please contact commonreading@tcu.edu if you have any questions or concerns, or would like more information about the Common Reading program at TCU.
