First Year Experience / Summer Reading Program

#MConnected: Summer Reading Program 2017

This year’s Summer Reading Program selection is not a book, but rather a casebook on social media.

Professors and advisers at Meredith have noticed that the use of social media has changed college life in a number of ways. And so we’ve made social media the topic of this year’s Summer Reading Program. We hope that reading and discussing this very relevant topic will help the entire Meredith community understand how our lives are affected by the presence of Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, Twitter, and the vast reaches of Google. 

The site includes links to seven articles and one TED talk, along with reading/discussion questions for each selection. You'll also find additional resources categorized by the four components of StrongPoints. The “Trending Now” link will be updated as new resources appear.

Enjoy your summer reading!
