GC Reads Common Reading Program


GC Reads is an innovative common reading program that seeks to engage students, faculty and staff in writing that reinforces our institutional values at Georgia College & State University and encourages creative exploration of current topics. GC Reads articles are aligned with GCSU's Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), Bobcats FIRST, and are meant to be engaging and thought-provoking.

Question: What is a micro seminar and when can I sign up for one?

  • Answer: A micro-seminar is the academic component of GC Reads and Week of Welcome. Students will gather in small groups facilitated by faculty and staff to engage in interactive and reflective discussion. 
    Signups for micro-seminars will open on August 1st

Question: On the registration page for the micro-seminars, I see "Sections" listed. What does that mean? Do I need to sign up for a specific one?

  • Answer: A micro-seminar section is a way for you to be able to choose the article you want to discuss while still keeping the discussion group small enough to have meaningful conversations. You only need to choose one section, hopefully for the article you want to discuss.
