Freshman Common Read

All students enrolled in GE 1000 Transition to Kean (T2K) will be required to obtain and read this year’s common read, "Life at a Performance Level" by Curtis Zimmerman.   The author of the book, Curtis Zimmerman, is one of Kean University’s New Student Orientation (NSO) keynote motivational speakers.  All new students will have the opportunity to hear him speak and have their books signed on the day of NSO.  Curtis is an award winning speaker and author who is honored to have shared his message with thousands and now with you.

 The book will be available at the Kean University Bookstore this summer.  All incoming freshmen will be notified via email once the books have arrived.  We’ll include information on how to purchase the book.  Students are expected to read the book over the summer, prior to the first day of class and be prepared to discuss it in the fall. 
See you soon!

**Students taking T2K in the summer will need to read and complete the book prior to Summer Session II beginning on July 1st.
