The first ever HackCollege Summit has officially wrapped up, and to say it was successful wouldn’t begin to do it justice.  In addition to actually bringing our far-flung writers together for the first time in the site’s history, the summit gave us the chance to make future plans for the site and, of course, have copious amounts of fun.

None of this would have been possible without the support of Intel, and we had a blast shooting videos for their YouTube page. Be on the lookout for them!  We also spent an afternoon in the Blip.tv office talking about where HackCollege has been, and where it is going.  Our eager freshman Sean even joined the table via Skype!  I probably can’t share too many details at this point, but trust me, it’s going to be a great year.

When we weren’t at the conference table, there was no shortage of awesome stuff to do.  Mike and I saw a taping of the Jimmy Fallon show, we all checked out the offices of Squarespace and Blip.tv, and we ate at some of the most delicious restaurants I’ve ever experienced, just to name a few things.  If you would like to experience acute jealousy, then by all means check out the photo gallery below.

All-in-all it was a fantastic kickoff to the Fall semester, and I think you guys are really going to enjoy the site this year.  We’re already making plans to get together again in Austin for SXSW, so hopefully we’ll see some of you there.
