The Baker Orange editorial board writes in their recent announcement that the search for the common book was a decision made by the Office of Student Affairs to find a text for all incoming freshmen to read next fall. The book will have a “community-building” aspect in some way.
In addition to reading the text, student affairs also wants to bring a speaker in who has some relation to the book.
“I am excited, but I think that campus is too, on how we will unify by having one book that the whole freshman class will read and how the negotiations we are having on bringing someone to campus will bring the book more to life,” Dean of Students Cassy Bailey said.
