An invitation

Hello incoming Hawks! My name is Gustavo Garcia-Rojas and I am your Graduate Assistant for Campus Events and Students Activities in charge of our Clubs and Organizations on campus. We offer HNU students the opportunity to foster an inclusive environment where they are able to develop their leadership and mentorship skills through social, cultural, political, and special interest programs and activities. I invite you to take a look at our current Clubs and Organizations below. If you would like to get more involved or if you have an idea for a new club on campus, you just need 5 members to start one! If you have any questions or comments please feel free to contact me at

Folklorica at HNU

The purpose of the Club is to continue representing and promoting the diversity of the campus through Mexican folkloric dances. We educate participants about the history of Mexican culture and the interpretations behind the dances and outfits. Together we build a familia both on campus and in the surrounding Oakland communities.


This Club educates students and community members about domestic violence and sexual assault, in an effort to promote a more open, equal, and consensual version of sexuality. This group forms a support system that provides students with resources and tools to make a difference and ultimately find ways to prevent the violence.
