Colleges aim for creativity with degree programs
U.S. News University - 07/01/2014
Graffiti and vandalism are frowned upon in everyday life, but one college is aiming to use these actions to encourage future students to think outside of the box.
As part of its Whiteboard Innovation Challenge, Northeastern University recently introduced a plain white van to the streets of Boston. According to BetaBoston, the vehicle had simple questions inscribed on it, including “What’s your big idea?” and “How would you use technology to solve a problem that you face every day?” People are then invited to draw or write their responses directly on the van, which has already been sent to dozens of events around the region, and hopefully spark an idea that could lead to future success.
