The Honors Summer Reading books have been chosen!

The Honors Summer Reading books have been chosen!  They are: 1984 by George Orwell, and The Death of Ivan Ilyich and Other Stories by Leo Tolstoy.  


 If would like to read one or both of these books, please let us know at, and we’ll send them to you.  
We’re reading all of 1984, and the following stories by Tolstoy: “The Death of Ivan Ilyich,” “The Kreutzer Sonata,” “After the Ball,” “The Forged Coupon” and “Hadji Murat.”  
If any upperclass honors students would like to be a part of the presession FYSP course for incoming honors freshmen, please let us know that as well.  
We will be discussing the summer reading together on Facebook with the incoming honors freshmen in the group RMU Honors 2013 Cohort.  Please join the group to take part in the discussion.  Alternatively you can follow the discussion here at, and email a post for us to upload to the Facebook group for you.
