6. Read the Common Reading book: The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History

As an introduction to the complex questions that underpin a college education, and to facilitate conversation among the students in your Colloquium section, all new students are required to read The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History by Elizabeth Kolbert. A copy of this text is included in your Orientation packet. Complete your reading by the beginning of your first semester and prepare to discuss the book with your Colloquium class.
