Freshman Innovation Immersion

Fire Up Your Innovation Engines

Meet Other First-Year Students and Collaborate to Create Something New.

The world needs entrepreneurial thinkers today more than ever. The entrepreneurs, innovators and creative thinkers will lead the charge to find solutions to current and future problems and create positive impact through innovation.

Join us at the Freshman Innovation Immersion! In this interactive, virtual event, you will learn methods of human centered design in order to become a better creative thinker and collaborator. These are valuable skills that apply to any field of study and major, and they are a fun way to get to know your new classmates. You will be connected with a like-minded student to solve a challenge and pitch your solution, with a chance to win a cash prize of up to $500!

You will also meet current #tommiepreneurs and hear how they followed their personal passion to make meaningful change for the common good.

This event is open exclusively to incoming first-year students of all majors and capped at 75 participants. It is free to attend and each participating student will receive a $50 gift card to the Tommie Shop. Additional prizes and giveaways will be awarded during the event.
