The TTU Common Book Program offers one of the first and best ways to connect with other students and faculty during every freshman’s first year experience here.
Your first year will bring new opportunities and challenges; how you respond to each will set your course as an undergraduate. Reading a common book allows you to engage in common conversations and critical thinking. No matter what your major or interest, you will find this program helps build bridges among disciplines.
The Common Book Program is the type of experience encouraged through Flight Plan, TTU’s strategic plan that guides the university in the ways we can improve your student experience. We offer you this opportunity; how much you benefit from it is up to you. I encourage you to read and form your own opinions about the information in the book.
I want your first-year experience to be everything good you anticipated when you chose Tech as your university.
Dr. Philip Oldham, President
