On the evening of Monday, October 8, the staff of the Illinois Tech Idea Shop were met with a very special surprise guest: rapper Kanye West (also known as YE). Held in the new building for the Ed Kaplan Family Institute for Innovation and Tech Entrepreneurship (hereafter abbreviated as the “Kaplan Institute”), West surprised the students present (some of whom were new members of the Idea Shop team) with his appearance, especially surprising as news outlets at the time focused their attention on his visit with U.S. President Donald Trump later that same week.
