In the College, we think of creativity as a hard skill. It’s the tool box you bring to a sticky situation, the idea that laughs “it can’t be done” out of the room. It’s the voice inside you that says, I see a different way. Creativity requires putting your whole self into the act. Thoughts and emotions. Knowledge and know-how. So, collect your wits and dare to be different. Your curiosity, cunning, and sense of play just might save the day.
