Summer Reading


The Iliad, Books 1-12, Lattimore (2011) Translation           

It is a Columbia tradition that the incoming class in each undergraduate school reads a book over the summer to be discussed in their first weeks on campus. These books were presented during COLUMBIA 101 events and, for those who were unable to attend, will be given to students during their first advising appointment in the fall.

Check with your local library for availability if you wish to preview either of these books.
