TOM RATH TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE HERE!
In 2013, George Mason University instituted a Common Read program for all incoming first-year off-campus students. This was a great way to introduce the focus of our institution: Where Innovation is Tradition. All incoming first-year off-campus students read Start Something That Matters by Blake Mycoskie, founder and Chief Shoe Giver of TOMS. Programming throughout the semester reinforced the theme that everyone could find their passion and make a difference in the world.
In 2014, this program, called Mason Reads, will be expanded to all incoming first-year students in Living Learning Communities, residence halls, and off-campus. Students will receive How Full Is Your Bucket? by Tom Rath and Donald Clifton at orientation, as well as access to the Gallup StrengthsFinder Assessment to find out what are their top strengths. Mason Reads will host programs and events throughout the year to help all first-year students connect with faculty, staff, and peers and learn more about their personal strengths.
