Affordable, customizable solutions for the First-Year Experience and College Success

Make Your Own Affordable FYE Textbook

We can help you customize a very affordable text for your campus!

Writing a campus-specific, student-centered book to adopt as a common read may seem like a daunting task. If other campuses can do it, so can you!

Speak to us to learn how a personalized common read, that celebrates your institutional values, fosters belonging AND critical thinking among first year students.

We will help you share your campus's journey as we develop and publish a common read that highlights your campus' values, traditions, and community in a creative, meaningful, and easy to read format.

Customizing your text can help create a community among students, alumni, faculty and local partners.
