About HIVE

This is our story. We're creators, collaborators, thinkers, explorers, instigators, dreamers and doers. We think side-by-side. We work hand-in-hand. And we solve problems, together. We come here to seek the best for ourselves, our campus and our community. And when we leave, we use this mindset to shape the world.

Our mission is to be a catalyst for individual confidence and community connection by offering a place for hands-on learning, collaborative problem-solving, design thinking and creative experimentation to prepare students for success in college, career and life.

Discover the concept behind design thinking, explore our space and check out a few projects you can make during your first visit to HIVE.
