Rutgers Reads 2020
Rutgers Reads provides incoming first-year students with a shared, intellectually engaging experience and serves as an introduction to academic life at Rutgers University–Camden. Each year, a small committee convenes to discuss and decide on a selection, which is then incorporated into the English and writing curriculum for all first-year undergraduate students. The Office of New Student Programs provides these incoming students with a copy of the Rutgers Reads book before they begin their first semester at Rutgers University–Camden.
