Meet the BizHawk Student Advisory Board

The BizHawk Student Advisory Board is the central component of the living-learning community's student voice and works to empower residents to play an active role in their community through service, educational and social programming, and leadership opportunities.

Favorite Quote: "Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma—which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary." (Steve Jobs)
