The Well Read Student
Are you ready for college reading?
Some college require incoming freshmen to have read certain books. While Andrews University does not have this requirement, you may want to do some personal reading in "the classics" in order to be considered well-read. This will help not only with college reading but also with your ACT scores and your current Academy classes.
