Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.
We are a community – it's what brings our students here and what keeps our people here. Faculty and staff take pride in building meaningful relationships with students and co-workers, and supporting their individual paths to success.
