New Officers Create Character for Campus Organization

By Eminah Quintyne

Six officers recently changed the name of the 3 Day Startup (3DS) campus student organization to Square 1. BIG’s September Newsletter featured Marin Coleman, the new president of Square 1, who shared her story on how her experience at 3DS boosted her confidence in her belief of her abilities. 3DS is a Shark Tank-style business idea pitch competition that happens in the Spring at Georgia Southern. The purpose of Square 1 is to nurture the gifts and talents of students across all majors and cultural backgrounds.  Students are made to feel like they are a part of an organization that brings out the best in them. The intention is to help students find who they are and develop confidence in their unique skills and interests by offering workshops, engagement activities, speakers, events and insights. Each officer brings a unique dynamic to Square 1. Learn more about the new team of officers, and  their view of entrepreneurship below:
