First Year Experience

Venture Hawks

Entrepreneurship has many definitions, ranging from starting a new venture to a certain frame of mind.

Entrepreneurial Spirit is a combination of ambition, the need to create, the taste for risk, the refusal of failure, relentless work, and dedication. If these are some of the traits that describe you and you'd like to learn more about the entrepreneurship education evolution on campus.
