Dear Students,

Earlier this summer, we invited you to submit names for the new one-stop-shop that would be in place before the fall semester.

You responded to that call. After careful consideration of all the student suggestions and faculty and staff contributions, we are excited to announce that the one-stop-shop is named Hawk Hub.

And we stuck to our word. Today, hours before our 164th academic year was officially opened at Convocation, the Hawk Hub had already assisted many new students and families who arrived to campus for Move-In Day.

Centrally located in the Degenstein Campus Center, the Hawk Hub will be a resource for both new and returning students. We will share more information in the coming weeks, but for now we’d like you to mark your calendars for Friday, Sept. 3, 11:30 a.m.–1 p.m. There will be a grand opening event where you can stop by to see and learn more about the Hawk Hub. Additionally, there will be a chance for students to leave with giveaways, while the grand prizes for the “Name the Hub” submissions will be announced at 11:40 a.m., noon, 12:30 p.m. and 1 p.m.

As the staff continues their onboarding, we appreciate your patience while they learn how to respond to your questions and provide top-level service. After an in-person visit to the HawkHub, you’ll receive a satisfaction survey via text. We encourage your constructive feedback as we learn and adapt to your needs.

I would like to thank the members of the one-stop planning and implementation committee for their tireless work and dedication to getting the hub up and running in time for the start of the 2021–22 year.
