Students talking with one another

Success starts with you.

Join other students interested in business and entrepreneurship. You’ll bond with the members in your community, establishing study groups, connecting with faculty and staff from the Tippie College of Business.

There are several courses that first-year business students will take. Business students living in the BizHawk Living Learning Community will have the advantage of living amongst students taking the same courses.

"Being a part of BizHawks allowed me to meet students with similar academic interests and drive. Coming from California, I didn’t know anybody coming into my first year at Iowa, but my community helped me meet great friends as soon as I got to campus."
