“Boston is definitely a great place to be if you're a college student because there's just so much to do. You never really run out of activities or sporting events to attend.”

First-Year Common Read Book Series: 'It Happened on the Way to War'
September 27, 2012
The Curry College First-Year Studies Program is proud to present the First-Year Common Read Book Series featuring, It Happened on the Way to War by Rye Barcott.
During the summer between high school graduation and the fall semester, new students are asked to complete a summer reading program selection. This program was created for incoming first-year students and transfer students to help ease the transition to college by creating a shared reading experience that helps connect them with other students, faculty and staff at Curry College.
It Happened on the Way to War chronicles Barcott's experiences as a college student training to be in the Marines while at the same time working with a widowed nurse and a community organizer to establish a non-governmental agency in the Kibera slum of Nairobi, Kenya.
The series, which will take place throughout the month of September, relates to the book and its themes and encourages students and faculty participation in any or all of them. Events include a 7-day Kibera Challenge, a community service day, a documentary film viewing, a meeting of the Blue Hills Book Club and a visit and lecture with Barcott himself.
