York College hosted the second annual YCP Hacks, a 36-hour event that encourages original and enterprising student thinking. Jeff Vermeulen, Assistant Vice President of External Relations, said, “It’s our hope that the ideation process and subsequent problem-solving and innovation that take place over the 36 hours help play a part in creating a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship here at York College.” Students who organized the October 2017 event also gained experience planning and connecting with local businesses. This year, 146 students from colleges around the Mid-Atlantic attended, including many from YCP and Penn State. They learned from professionals in the field and created solutions to real-life problems while using advanced technology equipment.
