Hawk Day

HNU is preparing to make any adjustments to our Hawk Days that support the health and safety of our community. We will contact all registrants with any changes to the format of the day. Please continue to monitor your email from HNU and take care.

During Hawk Day, you’ll connect with fellow incoming new students, explore ways to get involved at HNU, and learn more about the resources and people that are here to support you along the way. Hawk Days are one of two required programs for new undergraduate students.
