https://utdirect.utexas.edu/loadm/book.WBXOn the first day of Orientation there is a chunk of the afternoon when you have three options you can do.1. Attend the Student Organization fair.2. Watch movies.3. Join in a Book Discussion group led by a professor.If you want to do #3 you have till 21. August to sign up for a group and hope to be selected. There are some law related books, some Shakespeare, and a few classic books (such as Scarlet Letter).
I don't think I'll be doing any of them right now... does that make me a bad LS student?EDIT: None of the books really jumped out at me as things I want to read (and haven't already)... Capote, Shakespeare, Hawthorne... c'mon, most everyone has read them. As for some of the others, they aren't interesting to me or I don't want to discuss them for an hour and a half w/ gunners and a prof.
