Mason Reads, George Mason University’s common read program, is expanding this year with a focus on well-being. The not-your-average book club is asking all freshmen to read the introspective best-seller “How Full Is Your Bucket?” by Tom Rath and Donald O. Clifton.
The university is asking incoming students to read “How Full Is Your Bucket?” together because it helps students learn what well-being means by showing them how their actions and attitudes affect those around them. Students also are asked to take the StrengthsFinder assessment. This survey helps students discover what their greatest strengths and talents are so they can continue to build upon them.
