Suggestions Welcome for the Fall 2010 Freshman Text

The Freshman Text Selection Committee has begun the process of picking a common reading for the Fall 2010 incoming freshman class. All entering freshmen receive a free copy of the selected text and are asked to read it prior to attending the Fall Convocation, where the text is the subject of the keynote address. Titles can be fiction or non-fiction but the committee is particularly looking for titles that: students will be eager to read; will challenge students intellectually; faculty can incorporate into their course reading lists; can be discussed across the disciplines; have not already appeared on most high school reading lists; ideally do not exceed 300-350 pages. If you would like to recommend a book for consideration, please email Mark Spergel no later than February 5th. For a complete list of past titles selected as the freshman reading, go to http://www.baruch.cuny.edu/orientation/destination-baruch.html.

ARTS

 

Jan 7 - 24 | Nagelberg Theatre, Newman Vertical Campus, 55 Lexington Avenue

Originally produced in Kyoto and Tokyo, Japan, to much popular and critical acclaim, Auto Da Fe is a dreamscape of collective amnesia, life during wartime, the self-conscious erasure of history and national identity, and a search for meaning and beauty. More info

Jan. 14 - Feb. 7 | Mason Hall & The Bernie West Theatre, The Field Building, 17 Lexington Avenue

William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night

Mirthful comedy ensues as wild shenanigans, mistaken identity, and obsessive love combine for this headlong, swooning tale of "present laughter." More info
