Meeting Minutes – October 1, 2004

We focused mainly on the academic reading and discussion component of Opening Weekend because it is the most complex piece to coordinate for the coming year. While the goal of the end product is to role model the importance and style of an academic discussion in students’ first few days on campus, it seems counterintuitive to accept that many if not most students do not read the work prior to the discussion. What messages are we ultimately facilitating in this program? While there was no easy answer, the questions raised will be good perspective for planning for the future.
