All students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to participate in Synergy, UNCW's Common Reading Experience; however, starting fall 2016, incoming freshmen are expected to purchase the selected book to read over the summer. During the fall, Chasing Chaos will be used in First-Year Seminar and various courses of the faculty's choosing. There will be events surrounding the book and its topics during the fall semester, including lectures, discussions, films, and performances.
