  • 5:00pm: Ursinus College Rock-a-Thon
    Rock-a-thon is a 15 hour event where you will work with other students to “rock a problem” and then present or “pitch” the solution to a panel of outsiders. You work through a defined process (that we will give you) to help you clearly state the problem, validate that it is truly a problem worth solving, create a solution that is different than what currently exists and is tailored to meet the needs of the people affected by the problem and present your solution in a concise and engaging manner.
