Big Ten Student Design Challenge Seeks Rutgers Students

Rutgers is participating in this year's Big Ten Student Design Challenge through which students can re-imagine and create a communal space in a campus building. Participants will create a proposal for refurbishing an area in a heavily used classroom building that is conducive to the way that students gather to study, work together, and socialize. The best submission from Rutgers will move on to compete against other Big Ten schools. The winning team at the conference level will receive $2,000 and, because the winning team's proposal will be funded and constructed, play a central role in reshaping and improving the campus landscape. Students from all disciplines are welcome to participate. Anyone who is interested should form a group and submit their proposal before November 26. Questions about the competition can be directed to Associate Director Matt Wilk, who is coordinating Rutgers-NB's submission.
