Student’s Corner

While browsing the internet once again, I stumbled across this really cool video about a new company that produces these temporary homes for individuals living in areas that have recently experienced a natural disaster or civil unrest. These buildings are made of sustainable materials, are reusable, and stack-able for easy travel. And the whole idea came from turning a disposable coffee cup upside down.  Have a look at the video; it is truly inspiring!

  1. I can sometimes make some pretty impulsive decisions. Like saying yes to a job via phone interview, one year after impulsively saying yes to a job in Gainesville, Florida, selling everything that didn’t fit in my Passat station wagon (another impulse purchase) and two weeks later driving 3000 miles to Corvallis, Oregon.
