Jacksonville State University Reads This I Believe

For its second annual Summer Reading Program, Jacksonville State University has selected This I Believe: The Personal Philosophies of Remarkable Men and Women.  All incoming freshman students will pick up a copy of the book at the campus bookstore when they attend Gamecock Orientation sessions in June and July and read it before they return in the fall.

When the semester begins, students will discuss and complete assignments related to the book in English 100 and English 101 as well as in their Freshman Orientation seminars, which provide “supportive guidance in study skills, problem-solving, decision-making, and college adjustment.”
