WHAT: IBM Wii™ Campus Event – Game and Raffle

North­eastern Uni­ver­sity part­ners with industry-​​leading global com­pa­nies such as IBM to pro­vide its stu­dents with sig­nif­i­cant and varied expe­ri­en­tial learning oppor­tu­ni­ties. As part of this great part­ner­ship, IBM and North­eastern work together to iden­tify and develop new talent to be part of the company’s suc­cessful efforts to com­pete globally.

Spon­sored by IBM, maker of the Wii™ chip inside the pop­ular Nin­tendo® video game con­sole, the IBM Wii Campus Event’s goal is to allow North­eastern stu­dents to better under­stand some of the inno­v­a­tive and cre­ative aspects of IBM. The two-​​day event will give stu­dents an oppor­tu­nity to learn about IBM through a fun inter­ac­tion with the pop­ular con­sumer product.

As part of each event, sports-​​themed games dis­played on a large screen will be avail­able to play at the Library Quad on campus.
