A few years back, when Virginia Commonwealth University launched a program called University College to help acclimate new students, it also started a “summer reads” program, whereby all incoming freshmen read the same book in order to have a common text to discuss in various classes.

Yes indeed. We applaud their choice. And now we applaud their b-ball team.
