Summer Reading Program


Texas State University selects a critically acclaimed book for students to read during the summer and to engage in campus-wide conversations during the next academic year. The Summer Reading Program joins similar programs at hundreds of universities and colleges to prepare students for discussion both at the university and with members of the community.

The goals of the Summer Reading Program are three-fold:

  • to create a common experience for all new students
  • to enhance students' participation in the intellectual life of the campus through discussion and critical thinking on a current topic
  • to enhance a sense of community among students, faculty, and staff
