VS PINK Introduces New HU Line
Visit any area Victoria's Secret store to purchase your HU PINK gear today!
In January, Victoria’s Secret PINK welcomed Hampton University into its collegiate line with new tees, hoodies, yoga pants, shorts and more. Employees at the Patrick Henry Mall location couldn’t restock the shelves fast enough as HU students and alumni couldn’t wait to have their own PINK wear. To promote the new clothing line, HU hosted a promotional event in the Student Center on Feb. 16. Students answered trivia questions and competed in a dance off and a model walk to win PINK merchandise. In June, you can purchase your HU PINK gear online too!

On Dec. 20, five Hampton University students traveled to Chicago to compete in the Know Your Heritage Black College Quiz Show. The show invites students from HBCUs to flaunt their knowledge of African-American history on television. This year Adam Dixon, a senior chemical engineering major and captain of the team, led senior finance major Nneka Uzoh, senior electrical engineering and aviation major Jayrick Hayes, junior accounting major Melanie Richards and junior history major Sarah Anne Leverette in the quiz bowl competition.
The team lost to Miles College who later went on to win the entire competition. In March the 20th Annual Honda Campus All Star Challenge quiz bowl will take place in Orlando giving the team another chance to claim a championship prize.

The Department of Computer Science took on a very controversial issue during the 4th Annual Information Assurance Symposium held Jan. 22 in the Hampton University Student Center Ballroom. This year’s theme, “Ethical Hacking~ Is There Really Such a Thing,” allowed HU computer science faculty, students and guest facilitators to discuss ethical hacking, how hacking affects everyone, teaching and learning about ethical hacking and how it is used in the corporate realm.
Here at HU, the computer labs where information assurance and security techniques are taught are isolated, Internet use is prohibited and only computer science and computer information systems majors are allowed to use the labs. Students must sign an agreement and a disclosure. All safety measures are taken to protect students, HU and the network.
