Dear First-Year Administrator,

We’ve combed through all of our titles, new and classic, to compile a list of our best books for first-year experience reading programs on one website.

Our 2021-2022 First-Year Student catalog is available for immediate download here. We're pleased to be able to mail out physical copies of our catalog again this year; if you do not receive one and would like a copy, please email us at

If you need complimentary sample books for your committee members, please let us know at or give us a call at 212 207 7546. You can also feel free to reach out to us if you'd like to talk through some common read options; we're happy to set up a phone call or video chat to help you find some options!
