Common Reading eXperience
Each year, all incoming undergraduate students at Xavier read a common book before coming to campus and then write an essay related to that book. During the Manresa student orientation in August, students then discuss their reactions to the book with Xavier faculty, who will have read the writing assignments submitted electronically.
For 2013, the book will be The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot (2010) ISBN 1400052181.
