Reading Groups

Each semester, the Center for Free Enterprise sponsors student reading groups. These groups are great opportunities for students who enjoy reading and exchanging ideas with their peers, and offer added academic enrichment and intellectual inquiry beyond the classroom. We encourage all majors and grade levels to apply. The groups meet for discussion, followed by dinner at a local restaurant. All books and meals are provided by the Center.

Watch this space and the Center’s social media accounts for Reading Group application information.
