We are pleased to announce the 2016-17 selection is Little Bee by Chris Cleave.

Little Bee

Starting Fall 2017, the Synergy program is discontinued. 

Participating in Synergy

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, Little Bee 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.
