It's been a busy few days at Hack Northwestern! We got a
new home, announced a hackathon sponsored by imo, and just wrapped up a tech talk / hack night
by folks from Seelio yesterday!
It's humbling to note that this started as an idle suggestion last
spring, and then a quick get-together of around 7 students. Here's an
article about only the second such hack night, which exploded to around 30-40
people (even some from UChicago!). The idea behind this effort has
stayed constant: fostering student creativity, entrepreneurship, and
hacker spirit. It's a testament to Northwestern's active entrepreneur
and hacker community that Hack Northwestern is seeing such quick
validation of its efforts.
As we continue to build connections between different communities at
Northwestern and the tech world at large, we find an undercurrent of
excitement that is inspiring. And hearing about similar such efforts
at various other universities is even more gratifying.
University is more than just a trade school, and Hack Northwestern
hopes to prove that.
