FYE Book

Summer of Exploration

Zora Hurston Book CoverThis summer you will be reading “Their Eyes were Watching God,” by Zora Neale Hurston. This epic tale of self-discovery follows Janie Crawford, a proud and independent black woman from the 1930’s.

The FYE book is used as an educational resource for interdisciplinary and academic engagement during the Building Your Legacy Orientation.

"The purpose of the first year book is to stimulate conversation and critical thinking while engaging our students in important historical or relevant and timely subjects. This common intellectual experience aims to establish the foundation for a successful and meaningful academic experience built on a sense of community and identity amongst the students, the faculty and the college."

– Dr. Brenda Kauffman, First Year Advisor and Assistant Professor, Political Science


Student Reading BookJoin your first year advisor and fellow classmates on Janie’s journey as we read “Their Eyes were Watching God,” this summer. Books will be mailed to all new students in mid-July.
