Suggested Freshmen Reading

<p>A few weeks ago in the myNEU portal there was a little note about "Suggested Freshmen Reading" and it just listed a book that most freshmen should try to read if they had a chance this summer. Unfortunately now I can't find that under "Alerts" or wherever it was originally. Does anybody remember the name of the book? </p>

<p>Thanks.</p>

<p>It said required reading for me. and its Zeitoun by Dave Eggers.</p>

<p>Yes, that was it. On mine myNEU it also said that we are required to read it. If I remember well, they wrote that there'll be a meeting with the author and some discussions on September 7th.</p>

<p>Frankly, I find it to be an amazing idea. I'll probably start reading later in the summer.</p>

<p>I just got back from orientation this week and my group leader, a sophomore, said he never read the book and nothing happened to him. However, he said he wished he had read the book because there are many events that involve it.</p>

<p>Wow, you guys are so lucky that you get Dave Eggers as your author! I really hope upperclassmen are allowed to go to the discussion.</p>

<p>If you are curious about summer reading for freshman at other colleges, there is a thread on Parents discussion:</p>
