The Hawks Nest

The Hawk's Nest is a community game room set up for student entertainment and relaxation. You can hang out on the couches watching a movie or playing video games on the new 52” flat screen, play pool or ping pong with friends, or hold a club meeting or event in a more comfortable atmosphere.  A small courtyard adjacent to the Hawks Nest is also a great place to sit and chat while enjoying the great Bay Area weather.
