University Theme

Our University Theme for 2015 is What Does It Mean to Live Well?

This year, our theme is a question that stems from a long-standing and ongoing conversation about the human condition. From ancient philosophers to today’s cultural icons, humans have sought to answer the question: “What does it mean to live well?”

Living well…living good…living the life…living the dream. Each of us envisions a life we want to live, and each of us has a different picture of the good life. But is there such as thing as the good life, or are we really just seeking to build a life that is good for each of us?

The University Theme brings the Bay Path community together to consider and discuss a common theme, issue, or question that impacts us all. Through coursework, workshops, discussions, lectures, presentations, and through art, literature, film, and theatre, we will consider what it means for each of us to live the life we want to live. What matters to you? What do you value? What do you need to live the life you want to live? Is living well about financial security? Environmental and physical health? Spiritual fulfillment? Achievement? Family?

As a community of life-long learners, we will contemplate the questions and listen to the answers that allow us to build and relish in lives that are lived well.
