What is the Common Reading Program?
This is a program in which students, faculty, and staff participate in shared reading and learning experiences. The common reading program at Texas A&M University - Texarkana strategically aligns with the university’s annual theme program and lecture series.
Students in the First Year Experience program will participate in shared discussions, curricular, and co-curricular activities related to the common reader.
Having a shared source for such topics provides a common ground for students and their professors, and stimulates discussions as well as learning experiences. Sharing the same reading topics lends themselves to presentations in the lecture series and discussions between students and faculty within and beyond the classroom.
"What Allen does with a small plot of land and a lot of determination is nothing short of inspiring... A moving story of one man's success in producing healthy food for those who need it most." --Kirkus Reviews
