Summer Reading Program
Outliers: The Story of Success by best-selling author Malcolm Gladwell
Endicott College provides both Summer and Fall Orientations to assist newly admitted students and their families in the transition to higher education academics, campus life, and the Endicott community. The Endicott experience begins with Summer Orientation where new students and their families participate in an intensive, overnight orientation program. The Summer Orientation is designed to assist students in building relationships critical to their success at Endicott College. Workshops and interactive sessions engage students and their families in academic and co-curricular activities, thus introducing new students to the academic and community expectations and standards of the College. Students are introduced to their summer reading assignment which is designed to unite them in a shared intellectual discourse. Finally, orientation allows the College an opportunity to answer student and family questions and concerns before the academic year starts in order to ease the transition to Endicott.
Prior to the start of classes, Fall Orientation assists students with the academic transition for life on campus. At Fall Orientation, students are prepared for the transition into academics at Endicott and enhancing their understanding of their respective Schools and programs. Students will also have the opportunity to review their schedule and address any questions or concerns they might have before the first day of classes. Students will be introduced to their EC101 - Endicott Transitions course, which addresses the challenges of incoming students and provides strategies for success in an academic community. Fall Orientation concludes with the participation in a traditional Convocation ceremony.
