If you’re reading this, I am pretty sure you’re still reminiscing about bathing in the sunbeams on a beautiful Florida beach. I, too, have shared similar sentiments about my previous spring breaks, but this year’s was a little…different.

During spring break I had an unforgettable time launching my start-up music festival smartphone app, Festivus, at two music festivals: BUKU in New Orleans, LA and

Many people are aware that Georgia State University is an institute that is working hard to grow its innovation processes; however, many of us aren’t as familiar with exactly how Georgia State University is going about this innovation. Some of it is already being implemented and other parts are a work in progress. The Chief Innovation Officer, Phil Ventimiglia, and his office are focusing on four main areas as they look to the future ...

Why dropping out is never an option!

Being college students, we all know how difficult school can be; especially when you have so many other extracurriculars going on. If you’re like me, then you’ve most likely had the struggle of deciding whether school is STILL the right choice for you.
