Imagination Station

The U-Imagine Center for Integrative and Entrepreneurial Studies has had a mission: Empower students to think entrepreneurially in life, and make a living doing something they’re passionate about. Students have not only seen their own business ideas flourish, but have also helped local businesses with their own digital marketing initiatives. Read about the tangible outcomes that have been driven by a single idea … and the notion that anything is possible.

Campus Life on the Googleplex

Walk across a college campus and you never know who you might bump into—a professor, a friend, or maybe even the president or a dean. It’s that connectivity that really lends itself to collaboration and collegiality. Now, think of that on a much larger scale. For Becca Kamm Miller ’12, working at Google isn’t too far removed from strolling from Corson to the Kaleidoscope. The tech giant is a breeding ground for ideas and creativity.
