The OCU Reads program, which has become a highlight of new student orientation, requires all incoming first-year students to read a common book before arriving on campus for fall classes and to participate in discussion groups and attend a talk given by the author.
For the summer of 2006, the selection was First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers by Loung Ung. This eyewitness account by a survivor of the Killing Fields of Cambodia has generated much discussion in community-wide and academic reading programs.
