2018 Michigan Engineering Common Reading Experience

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot

The College of Engineering loves challenging our students to seek new ways of understanding their engineering roles and experiences both on and off campus. Each student will be provided with a copy of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot. Books will be shipped during the month of June to students’ permanent addresses. International students will receive an e-book, unless a hard copy was requested. Incoming first-year engineering students should read the book in preparation for arrival on campus and entry into the Michigan Engineering community. The Common Reading Experience helps students connect with the Michigan Engineering community through interactive discussions and events throughout the year.

We know that you are eager to jump into your experience here at Michigan Engineering and begin to meet others and build connections. The Common Reading Experience is a great way to strike up those first conversations with your fellow classmates, as well as current students, faculty, and staff. With so many members of the Michigan Engineering community already involved, why not join the conversation?
