Ransom Reading Groups

Posted: February 5, 2009

The Liberal Arts Honors office provides the books for students who sign up for the reading groups so that students can read the book over the winter break. Groups meet early in the Spring semester for lively and intriguing discussions.

Many thanks to the University Co-op for their generous donation of books for all participants in the 2008 Ransom Reading Groups.
