A Common Intellectual Experience

Each year, Bay Path selects a university theme, such as “Be Bold!” or “What Does it Mean to Live WELL?” Our theme for 2016-2017 is "Thrive." Throughout the year, there will be events, lectures, class assignments, a student essay contest, and a "common-read," a single book that is thematically aligned with the idea of thriving. These themed programs and assignments will give you and your peers a common academic experience that will challenge you to think deeply and broaden your understanding. Be ready to move beyond your comfort zone as you share and claim your beliefs and voice. 

At the end of the spring semester, you will also have the opportunity to participate in our campus-wide Academic Achievement Day, a celebration of academic success, excellence in scholarship, and student-faculty research. It’s your turn to shine.
