Pullman, Wash. — Ten finalist teams from 12 sections of the Washington State University’s First-Year Success Seminar/University 104 course presented apps on the theme of “resilience” at the third Adobe Creative Jam, and three teams took home top awards, said Cynthia Williams, program director.
“Thanks to our ongoing partnership with Adobe, our students were once again able to demonstrate the skills learned in UNIV 104 to creatively identify and communicate their innovative solutions to a complex problem,” said Williams. UNIV 104 is part of First-Year Programs, a unit in the Division of Academic Engagement and Student Achievement in the provost’s office.
The fall 2020 Jam’s first-place winners are Sidney Serna, Ashley Driesler, and Isabella Croston, for their app “Unbottle.” They will receive a 12-month subscription to Adobe Stock’s collection of images, graphics, videos, 3D objects, and templates and Creative Jam backpacks full of swag. » More …

PULLMAN, Wash.—The top ten of 34 original teams of Washington State University first-year and other students will deliver online presentations March 25 from 6-8 p.m. describing their plans for safe communities as part of a Adobe Creative Jam, said Cindy Williams, program director for the freshman seminar course UNIV 104. The WSU community and the public are invited to observe online.
“The topic was selected by Adobe early in spring semester when the plan was for the top teams to deliver live presentations and compete for prizes from Adobe,” said Williams. “Now with our university going to online course delivery in light of COVID-19 precautions, we switched from live to online-only student presentations. The students made the adjustment easily, exemplifying that Cougs have a real can-do Cougar attitude, I believe.”
Of around 125 participating students from nine course sections, ten teams were selected by Adobe hosts and judges, also working from a distance. WSU’s Creative Corridor handles the technological aspects of the presentations, and is a partner with UNIV 104 on the overall project with Adobe. The WSU Adobe Creative Jam is the only such event sponsored by Adobe that takes place within a university course, said Williams.
For the Jam, students are given a key phrase to identify solutions to a complex problem affecting others, this time around the theme of safe communities. They then create an app using Adobe XD software. At the March 25 Jam, the presentations and projects of the top teams will be judged by industry and Adobe professionals, who will also provide constructive feedback.
PULLMAN, Wash.—Apps tackling the issue of “relocation” were presented in October by twenty-two Washington State University students on six teams who took top honors at the 2019 Creative Jam event.
Topics tackled by the teams made up mostly of freshmen ranged from solutions to aging out of the foster system to college roommate selection, and from adjusting to college life to finding American resources for immigrants.
PULLMAN, Wash.—How would you solve a problem related to “relocation?” More than 250 students enrolled in UNIV 104 (First-Year Success Seminar) have worked on ideas to do just that in small teams this semester.
Twelve finalist teams will deliver presentations at an Adobe-hosted Creative Jam from 6-8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 3, in the SPARK.
