Carolina Pitch Party gives students opportunity to jumpstart ideas

For an assignment in a business class, junior William Sweet came up with the idea to create a cold compression sleeve for people recovering from ACL injuries. His idea won the fourth annual Carolina Challenge Pitch Party, which took place on Nov. 8 as part of the annual Carolina Challenge, a venture competition that gives students and faculty the opportunity to win funding for their idea. Sweet and his group received a $400 award toward the creation of a prototype.

The walk to Polk Place from the depths of South Campus for a Monday morning eight am class can seem like an tiresome effort for the average first-year student. However, most students’ mornings are brightened just a little by a simple “good morning” or “have a nice day” from Joann Isom, the crossing guard.
