Learn more about our reading circle opportunities!

Faculty Firesides: 

Faculty Firesides are great way to interact with a professor outside of the classroom. The Faculty Firesides are professor led discussions on book or articles over three to five meetings. This program allows you to build relationships with professors and fellow students.

Throwback Thursday Reading Circle: 

Students have a blast from the past with discussion on a "throwback" book or movie from the past. Students explore themes and lessons that are still relevant today! These circles happen monthly in the Lead and Serve office. 

Presidential Reading Circle: 

Students attend this one-time event with a senior level administrator to engage in reflective and interactive conversation around hot topics in leadership.  

Student Leader Reading Circles: 

Students who participate in high caliber leadership opportunities would be invited to engage around a book or media content focused on leadership or a pertinent issue facing their role. The content and meeting times vary. 


Interested in one or more of these circles? Join one today!
