Have you met Swoop, our beloved mascot, and his feathered fleet of Road Hawk student drivers? If you’re out bird watching, you might spot a Road Hawk in a neighborhood, shopping center parking lot or on an AACC campus. If you see a Road Hawk car, you’ll want to snap a photo or take a selfie. You could be eligible for one of the social media photo contest prizes throughout the year! Road Hawks also carry a stash of giveaways and information about the college, so don’t be shy, if you have time to meet one, feel free to chat and see about any college freebies they may have on hand!
