“My favorite memory is being able to bond with the engineers and business students on my floor and be able to talk about projects we were working on. We are able to push each other to achieve new heights and push past harder obstacles.”

“Being in a community like this is pretty fun and it really helps cheer me up when I’m feeling a little down. Also, a lot of the people in my hall share similar career interests to me, which is really neat! Next week I’ll be going to a Hackathon at MSU with a few friends in the hall, and if I didn’t join Innovation, I probably would never have even heard of the hackathon.”
