The OneBook Project is a college-wide initiative that invites students, faculty, staff and members of the outside community to read a common text and engage in activities and discussions around that text. The goal is to create an interdisciplinary learning community which explores issues relevant to the text and our community and which enhances student engagement.

This year's OneBook is The Pact written by Drs. Sampson Davis, George Jenkins, and Rameck Hunt with Lisa Frazier Page.Three young men make a promise and fulfill a dream.

The OneBook Project kicks off this year's schedule of events with a discussion with one of the book’s authors, Dr. Rameck Hunt on Thursday, October 3rd at 9:30 am, in the McKenzie Auditorium.
