Why READ@PolyU?

It is a campus-wide common reading programme in which all PolyU full-time first year undergraduate students will read the same book. The main objective is to create a sense of community for freshmen to share a common experience in their new environment with fellow students. It is also designed to introduce them to the academic life they are beginning at PolyU, and foster a reading culture across the University.
