London FYE 2013 Summer Reading

The Ghost MapStudents spending their first semester in London in fall 2013 have been assigned a special summer reading related to their studies in London. Each London student will read The Ghost Map: The Story of London’s Most Terrifying Epidemic—and How it Changed Science, Cities, and the Modern World by Stephen Johnson. This reading has been selected by the Skidmore London FYE Faculty directors and will be discussed upon the students’ arrival in London. 

This book will be sent to each student in mid-July.

Saratoga Campus Summer Reading

At this time, London FYE students are not required to read the FYE summer reading required of students coming to the Saratoga Springs campus for fall 2013 (Wes Moore’s book, The Other Wes Moore). Instead, London students will be asked to read The Other Wes Moore during winter break as they prepare to come back to campus in spring 2014. All London students will be provided a copy of The Other Wes Moore from the FYE office prior to winter break.
