Hunt Vice President of the Student Government Association, and has been part of multiple campus organizations including the Black Student Union, CSTEP, and Epsilon Pi Tau Honor Society. In June 2020, when national conversations about racial justice were ubiquitous after the murder of George Floyd, Darrien planned and led the virtual event, “Student Voices: The Systematic Oppression of Black Lives,” which brought together the campus community for education, discussion, and healing.

Mohan is a RAM program scholar who has participated in a legislative internship in Albany and a Criminal Justice internship. Wan is a Ram Scholar who received the Institute of Electrical/Electronic Engineers Scholarship for his excellence in academics and leadership and passion for engineering.
