Reflections on Walden

 For the 2010 -2 online issue of ICView, President Rochon created a blog to accompany his President’s Corner column. The topic — the First-Year Reading Initiative’s assignment of Henry David Thoreau’s Walden — generated quite a few comments, some of which we ran in the 2010-4 print version of Mailbox. The First Year Reading Initiative provides a common academic experience for incoming students, where they read and discuss one book with their peers and faculty facilitators.
