    CAMPUS READ

    2016 Campus Read cover image

    College is about learning - and reading. One of our goals at Wisconsin Lutheran College is to help you develop a love for reading and the confidence that you can critically evaluate what you have read, then apply it to your life and work.

    With that in mind, each year we ask freshmen to read a common text as part of their COL 101 course. The book selected this year is The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis, a classic masterpiece of religious satire.

    New and used copies plus eBook versions of The Screwtape Letters are widely available; check Amazon or your local new or used bookstore (ISBN-13 978-0060652937).

    The book, which is a required textbook for COL 101, will be infused into course assignments, discussions, and programming throughout the year.

    We hope you have a blessed summer, and we look forward to meeting you and discussing your insights regarding The Screwtape Letters during the coming year.

    TEXTBOOKS

    WLC does not sell textbooks on campus, so you need to order your books online before coming to campus. Textbook information is listed with your courses on myWLC (Academics/My Courses). Click on the plus sign (+) next to a course number to see the titles and ISBN.  

    Use the ISBN to order your textbooks from any online source (such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Chegg, or AbeBooks). Remember that the textbook price showing with your course is the list price for new books. You may rent or buy used books unless the professor has specified a need for new books (primarily for workbooks and lab manuals). 

    If you are unsure of what to order, email your professor from your WLC email account with questions.
