Appathon

Crowdsourcing CampusĀ App Ideas

As part of Bryant’s annual Research and Engagement Day, CEO hosts our annual Appathon. Here, students pitch their ideas for applications that will improve life on campus for Bryant students. The app ideas are judged on criteria such as “Ease of Implementation” and “Likelihood of Adoption”. Judges from the faculty and Bryant IT choose the best idea, build it, and implement it into the Bryant mobile app. Winners receive a free iPad and get the chance to work with the IT department to implement their idea.

Ideas that became reality

  • Crowdedness indicator for the gym
  • Line length at the dining hall
  • Classroom availability for studying
  • Mobile food ordering
