Honors College Alumni and Student Virtual Book Club

We are excited to launch a new opportunity for Honors College and Honors Program alumni to participate with current honors students in an entirely online book club! Working with PBC Guru, a private company that manages virtual book groups for businesses and universities, we are offering this opportunity to all honors alumni and students for free, as a way of building connections. A new book will be selected every 2-4 months - sign up for the book club and you can pick and choose which books you read. Currently, the group is reading Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption, by Bryan Stevenson.

Of course there are many other ways to be involved with the Honors College community, and we are working now to expand opportunities for alumni to engage with students. If you want to be a part of this, contact Kevin Stoller, the HC director of external relations and operations, at 541.737.6425 or stollerk@oregonstate.edu.

We look forward to hearing from you soon!
