New Student Reader

The New Student Reader program is part of the New Student Experience and new student orientation. The programs started in 2005.

The purpose of the New Student Reader Program is to orient new students to our academic community at Salisbury University by having a common reading experience with fellow classmates, faculty, staff and upper-class students who serve as orientation team peer leaders. 

The goal of the New Student Reader Program is to engage students in discussions, projects, curricular and co-curricular opportunities generated by a common reading experience.



For questions or inquires about the New Student Reader program, please contact the Guerrieri University Cener (GUC) office at 410-543-6100.
