Honors Book Talk

I am a member of the Honors Program here at BW and earlier this week we had a dinner and book discussion with President Helmer. This is the first year that the program has tried something like this, and I thought it was really interesting. Back in the fall all of the seniors in the program received a copy of the book, How to get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia. ​We had over winter break and the beginning of this semester to read the book. Then this week we all met in the Colony Room, where we had a great dinner, and discussed the book. 

The book was very interesting, it was written in a style that was completely different from what I am used to reading. The book was a novel that dealt with topics of success, love and the journey throughout life, but from a very interesting perspective. I really enjoyed the opportunity to talk about the book. I like to read on my own a lot, but never really get to discuss what I'm reading with other people, so this was actually very fun for me. It was also a great chance to reconnect with some of the seniors in the program that I don't get to see very often. I hope that the program continues to do this in the future!
