Our Theme 2016


“And so, onwards… along a path of wisdom, with a hearty tread, a hearty confidence.. however you may be, be your own source of experience. Throw off your discontent about your nature. Forgive yourself your own self. You have it in your power to merge everything you have lived through- false starts, errors, delusions, passions, your loves and your hopes- into your goal, with nothing left over.”

― Friedrich Nietzsche, Human, All Too Human

The theme for 2016 was “All Too Human”. The goal behind this theme is to encourage, in our peers, the motivation to understand and solve our most pressing problems. It is based on the book “Human, All Too Human” by Friedrich Nietzsche, which challenges the human tendency to look for comfort, stability, and easy answers. This concept embodies the goal and the general impact we want to make with this event.
