films, workshops, service learning, and classroom activities
centered on the themes in Ehrenreich’s New York Times
best seller. The Common Reading Experience is being formulated
by the First Year Experience (FYE) Team on the Takoma
Park/Silver Spring campus allowing participants to choose their
level of involvement.
