Outcasts United?

<p>What do we need to read this for? I can't imagine it being like High School where they will give the entire freshman class a test on the book. I've really been slacking and haven't read much and now I'm starting to freak out about it a lot. I would really appreciate it if someone could give me a nice summary of the book. Thanks so much.</p>

<p>I lost my copy...</p>

<p>I haven't even opened the book. I didn't plan on reading but now people are saying we break in to small groups and discuss the book... I don't want to look like an idiot if the group leader asks me a question or something -_-.</p>

<p>If we do that, how would that occur because it's not like we are being required as freshmen to all take a common class. Everyone has different classes. If someone has all business classes and someone else has all science classes, how would that work?</p>

<p>I've heard that people that are taking SLS1102 (First-year Florida) will need to have read it. Not sure about other classes.</p>

<p>See that makes a heck of a lot more sense. As a whole 5,000 students or whatever we are, we all aren't taking one common class so it would logically seem to make more sense if it was only required for certain classes.</p>

<p>We'll all be together at Convocation. That's where I heard we supposedly discuss the book and break in to small groups. The author of the book will be there too.</p>

<p>if it is the same as last year, then you don't have to read it if you don't want to. after the opening of convocation, you'll split into groups by college. liberal arts was so big they just stayed in the o dome. and in the other colleges, they used it as an opportunity to introduce the students to their college. in the 1 session i was in First year florida, the prof never even mentioned the book we had, and nothing about it was on the syllabus. </p>

<p>but you should totally read it, they pick good books for the common reading program. even if you don't, it's no big deal, most people aren't gonna read it.</p>
