Ames May 30, 2013 by Megan Bannister

Students at Iowa State University are proving that entrepreneurship doesn't just belong in the business school. In November 2012, the university's Collegiate Entrepreneurs Organization was given the Campus "E-Diffusion" Award by its governing organization, an entrepreneurship network with more than 240 chapters.

The award recognizes the chapter that has done the most to get students from all colleges of the university involved in entrepreneurship. CEO also offered a grant to schools that produced a video about their campus.

The video, released this week by recent graduate Naipong Vang, highlights the entrepreneurial community at Iowa State and showcases the award. Vang's video draws on some of the unique aspects of student's involvement in entrepreneruship, like the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Learning Community, hosted through the Delta Upsilon Fraternity.

Iowa State's video (below) is featured alongside others, including one from the University of Nebraska Omaha CEO (winner of Best Chapter Business award) (below), on CEO's national website.
