The last time Columbia law student Alex Blaszczuk went camping, a car accident left her paralyzed from the chest down. In this video, she dons Google Glass and again heads out into the woods to regain a sense of independence.

will.i.am Welcomes a Special Guest to Boyle Heights

In this video, will.i.am, who is featured on the October 2014 cover of SUCCESS, opens the doors of his i.am College Track tutoring center to Prince Andrew, the Duke of York.

“This is preparing you for the real world, but with real tools that the real world is actually using,” will.i.am says. “We’re trying to change communities and we’re passionate about project-based learning.”
