Hack Your Campus is an entrepreneurial competition in which students can make their mark on GVSU. The competition asks students to submit ideas for improving some aspect of GVSU campus or services as part of a competitive pitching event. Ideas can either improve existing programs or services or propose entirely new ones. The best ideas earn substantial cash prizes!
Hack Your Campus was developed collaboratively by staff and students in the GVSU University Libraries and the Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation. Our vision was to provide students with an opportunity to practice innovation and communication skills while also channeling some of their creative energy towards improving the campus.
The competition is designed to be fun, low-investment, and to allow for the maximum amount of creative freedom while still encouraging students to develop ideas that are at least theoretically implementable.
