When you are a Hawk, you can spot a goal from a mile away and zero in on it.

Strong foundations are essential to your success as a student. Through learning how to navigate campus procedures, discovering helpful resources, practicing how to ask for help and advocate for yourself, seeking out new experiences to expand your learning, and finding a place on campus to call home, you can create and maintain a firm base from which to build your success both inside and outside of the classroom.
