Each year, Cornell sponsors the Big Idea Competition, a contest in which students pitch ideas for non-profit and for-profit enterprises in the hopes of having their entrepreneurial ambitions realized.
While I hardly exude CEO-cool — see: that time I left my math notebook on a hot stove — I have a submission for this year’s contest that I think could sway a few judges, an idea crystallized after countless strolls past McGraw Tower at certain hours of the day (i.e. 8 a.m., 1 p.m. and 6 p.m.).
My Big Idea? Put a clamp on the Cornell Chimes.
