Hannah Bourquardez, one of the student workers for the Career & Academic Planning (CAP) Center, offers a spark of creativity to the Hull College of Business.
She is a junior majoring in Business Administration with a concentration in Digital Marketing, on track to graduate in May 2023.
Bourquardez, 20, from Marietta, GA, has her eye on opening her own store. But immediately after graduation, she’s interested in pursuing a job in hospitality or marketing.
“I want to own a bakery-coffee shop mix. I’m working toward that dream,” she said since baking is one of her hobbies, and she’s worked as a coffee barista in season work for a couple of years.
Business was her first choice as a major, and the quality of the business school made Augusta University her choice of higher education.
“It has a great community and culture within the school,” she explained. She was also impressed with the success rate of students getting a job after graduation, based on the internship requirement to graduate.
“It’s close knit, and there’s always something to do. I’m not a number here,” she said.
Bourquardez is helping to re-start the college’s Project Management Club in the spring semester with the club’s faculty advisor Roger Duke, lecturer of project management.
It is common for Duke to have a semester service project for his project management class. Bourquardez is involved in this semester’s Thanksgiving project, gathering boxes for the canned food drive, as well as handling the marketing for the volunteer work.
She formerly belonged to the Jaguar Production Crew, commonly known on campus as The Crew, but was too busy between work and Hull College activities to continue.
Bourquardez is a member of Club Creativity, the student art association at the University. She enjoys sculpture and ceramics and wants to take the ceramics class for non-art majors as an elective.
