Abstract Title

Student Run Pop-Up Shops Build A Unified Community While Providing Retail Experience and Promotion of Student Creativity

Abstract

A problem on campus is that students do not have a proper outlet to sell their creations. In response, this proposal is to better Kent State University by creating the opportunity for students of all majors to promote themselves by selling new merchandise that they have created and/or old items, in good condition, for which they no longer have use. Furthermore, this will extend the opportunity to have businesses from downtown Kent connect with the University, creating a more close-knit community. This will start as a temporary concept to gain knowledge about what locations, products, and times are best for this operation. With better understanding and support, the program will become a more permanent and regular function. This is an excellent way for people to promote themselves and gain business experience by utilizing their talents and Kent’s available resources while showcasing the University’s values of its students.
