The peer mentors in our Focused Inquiry Learning Lounge (FILL) are ready to meet with you one-on-one to assist you with your Focused Inquiry and UNIV 200 projects, and our Common Book team has arranged a number of programs that explore Elizabeth Rush’s “Rising: Dispatches from the New American Shore” that will build on your class discussions of the issues Rush’s book explores and help prepare you for the author’s visit and public lecture at the Siegel Center on October 13.

I am so excited to have you back on campus. I hope you are as confident as I am that this will be a great fall!
