Students selected for 'Reimagining Downtown' course


SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Ten University of Iowa students were selected for the pilot Reimagining Downtown course beginning this semester.

According to a UI news release, the course — created by David Gould, associate director of professional student development in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences — was designed to apply education and creativity toward the Downtown Project.

The project will allow students to work in teams to create and present project proposals to enrich the Fremont East and Arts District areas in Las Vegas. Students will take a trip to Las Vegas during spring break and present their proposals to Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh and members of his staff.

Ten students and four alternatives, with majors ranging from psychology to theater, were selected.

The project is collaboration among the liberal-arts school, the Tippie College of Business, the Honors Program, and the Pomerantz Career Center.
