Requirements: AllowFreshmen Year Experience Program participants to redeem, read, and share experiences.
Ohio State University chose The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls (Simon & Schuster) as their Freshman Year Experience (FYE) selection. FYE programs provide stimulating titles for incoming students to read together. These special programs seek to create a community and shared experiences among new students.
In addition to their traditional print book purchase, Ohio State purchased a significant number of eBooks. The goal was to reach students where they spend most of their time—on various devices. Distribution of the eBooks was seamless; BookShout’s easy-to-use redemption codes and dedicated, branded redemption portal were vital to student success.
