Annual Summer Assignment for First-Year Students: Common Read Discussion Fall 2022

Summer Assignment for All Incoming Students

Each academic year, Siena Heights University chooses a theme. The theme selected this year is Brave the Silence.

Incoming students will read the book We Need to Talk: How to Have Conversations That Matter and write a two page essay OR create a piece of artwork with a paragraph describing how your art relates to the book. The objective is to tell us your story and connect your personal experience(s) to the book. You will share your essay or artwork at the Common Read Discussion and Dinner during Welcome Week.

Books will be handed out at the SHO Days throughout the summer.

Please contact Julia Cassell, FYE Coordinator with any questions.
