Orientation Reading Component

 

As you begin to write your story at Bloomfield College, we would like to introduce you to some other stories,  The Decline of the Newspaper: An Overview by Adam Berger, and The Decline of Reading: An Overview by Micah L. Issitt and Kathryn Cook.  These articles have been selected as the Orientation Reading Component summer reading and are required reading for all incoming freshmen. The Orientation Reading Component exposes our freshmen students to college level reading and the type of academic activity you will soon be participating in at Bloomfield College. You will receive and read these articles when you come for your Orientation from Wednesday, July 25th- Thursday, July 26th.  As a new student at Bloomfield College, you are required to attend this event.

At New Student Orientation, among other activities, you and a small group of other new students will join a professor to discuss this reading selection in a college classroom environment. Please remember that it will be much easier and much more rewarding to participate in the discussion if you’ve read the articles before attending orientation.  We suggest that you read the articles thoroughly and reflectively and then begin to formulate your own opinions on the issues raised by the reading.

We hope you enjoy your summer reading, The Decline of the Newspaper: An Overview by Adam Berger, and The Decline of Reading: An Overview by Micah L. Issitt and Kathryn Cook.  We look forward to meeting you this fall and assisting you in your future here at Bloomfield College where you will ‘write your own story.’
