Learning . . . Living . . . Exploring
Have you ever wanted to have the time to ask the really big questions in life? Are you looking for a community of people who care about these questions, too? The Truth and Purpose learning community will explore the issues that are important to any human life, questions like, "How do I live a good life? Who are my friends and how do I know them? How do I love, and can I be loved in return? Is there hope for community in a 'postmodern' world? Is there a God, and what difference does that make? How do I look for truth in a world with so many different answers? How do I understand the world around me? How will I face death?" We will put these kinds of questions at the center of our study, looking for practical wisdom in conversation with some of the great minds of the past and present.
While the Big Questions will be explored both Fall and Spring semesters in the interdisciplinary humanities Augustine and Culture seminar, you will also meet once a week, in a more casual setting in the residence hall, in a one-credit class designed to integrate these questions into our lives in practical and fun ways.
