Now in it’s fifth year, the Summer Reading Program encourages intellectual discourse and a common academic experience for all incoming freshmen at the Buffalo Campus. At Medaille, we know that a key to success is being an active, engaged learner. Our Summer Reading Program encourages active learning and helps freshmen successfully transition to college-level study. The Shallows will help students actively engage with important ideas and inspire them as they embark on a college career. The Shallows will be incorporated into Learning Community coursework during the fall 2013 semester.
