We are so excited about our Common Read selection for the 2015-2016 academic year! All of our first-year students will be reading the book Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell. Outliers will most commonly be seen in University Seminar courses but other faculty and staff have the option to use it in their classes as well, so we encourage every first-year student to purchase the book and begin to read it prior to the start of Fall Quarter. Outliers is available at our on-campus bookstore, Barnes & Noble at Louisiana Tech. You can go ahead and order it by clicking HERE.
Outliers: The Story of Success is a book that explores all of the components that go into making a person successful. Everything from practice and opportunity, to culture and communication. We want every first-year student to be successful here at Louisiana Tech and this common read selection is just one tool available to ensure their success!
If you have comments on Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell and the Summer Reading Program please let us know.
