Campus Theme Essay Contest
The Campus Theme brings the Bay Path community together to consider and discuss a common theme, issue, or question that impacts us all. This year, our theme is “Lead with Compassion.” Through coursework, workshops, discussions, lectures, presentations, and through art, we will consider the many reasons we should and ways we can lead with compassion.

A collaborative effort between the Campus Theme (2011-2012 Campus Theme was "Power of Choice") and writing programs here at Bay Path, the first annual Campus Theme Essay Contest encouraged Bay Path students to reflect on the power of choice, and its impact on women. Combining sound logic and strong writing technique, student writers shared their voices regarding how the power of choice, or the lack of choice, has influenced them and other women.
