We started as the Student Committee on Athletics (scoa) which was established December 3, 2008. Our Purpose was to be a liaison between students and our UI Athletic Department. The “Hawks Nest” idea became end-game goal of SCOA. We were Officially Recognized as a student organization in August 28, 2009. The Student Committee on Athletics officially disbanded at start of 2010 year. We started a membership database in 2013 and since then we have grown to have over 750 members!
