Is Your Organization Doing it Right? Tell Us!

Think about the clubs and groups you're passionate about on campus. Which one is owning it? Is your blog ousting the campus newspaper? Is your small business idea helping students party more? Is your sorority raising money for a good cause in a unique way? Is your club sports team inventing new strategies in dodgeball? 

HackCollege is looking for one such stellar, innovative organization and we're awarding it with a free year-long subscription to RingCentral (worth $300).

Communication is key at any growing club. The winning group will get access to a comprehensive digital phone service to keep your club, staff or leadership in perfect sync. This package gives you a fancy 800 number and several extensions that forward on to all of your members/officers. The winning org will also be put in the running to win a grad prize that includes a new logo design, business cards and a bunch of web hosting. 

As long as you're innovating, we're interested. You could be saving time with a clever leadership stucture. You could be making a splash in social media. You could be doing an unconventional fundraiser to earn cash. Think about the ideals of "hacking" college and if your club is doing it, we want to hear about it! If it's good enough, we might even feature you on HackCollege! 

Email your submissions to our tip line. Just a simple summary of your idea and a link or two will suffice! You have until Wednesday, April 21st at 9pm Eastern -- so don't hesitate!

Like a term paper, we procrastinated this episode off until the last minute. We're sorry, but Kelly just couldn't be pried away from the craps table this weekend in Vegas.
