CollegePlus is a company that “creates customized dual credit and Bachelor’s degree programs for students, based on their personality, learning style, and life purpose, then integrates personal coaching and mentoring to empower students to reach their educational and life goals, without the time constraints and debt burden of traditional college.”
The contest took place between November 1st and November 30th. Students from all over the nation completed courses on the Free Think U website in order to earn “Impact Points” that were tallied and posted as weekly updates.
In addition to earning points for completing the online course experiences, students were also awarded points for “actions” like recruiting friends, starting discussion boards, and engaging in conversation on social media.
CollegePlus CEO Brad Voller said, “It’s wonderful to be able to reward students for thinking critically and moving beyond the politically correct opinion that prevails today.”
