Meant to Live: What will you do with your one wild and precious life?Meant
To Live is an annual program organized by and for students, as part of
the Wild Hope Project. By bringing in a wide variety of professionals,
musicians, performers, artists and intellectuals to share their
stories, we hope to reach students on a personal level. Speakers share
what events, people, and passions have brought them to their current
We challenge students to ask themselves "Big Enough Questions." These are recurring questions to which you are drawn to and about which you think about . For some, these are the questions that keep us up at night:
What am I living for? Whom do I really want to become? How do I work towards something, when I don’t even know what it ultimately is? Does what I am studying make any difference? Do my actions make any real difference in the bigger scheme of things? Where can I be creative? What is my society or life or God asking of me? Anything? What is the meaning of money? How much is enough? Do I want to bring children into the world? To what am I most vulnerable? Will I always be stereotyped? Do I want friendship, partnership, marriage? If so, why? With whom? How do I bear the pain of being able to see what really goes on in the world? What is my religion? Do I need one? What vision of the world is worth living for? Sacrificing for? Who am I as a sexual being? Does what I consume help others, or does it hurt them? What are my questions?
