|To boost community spirit and create a more supportive, cohesive environment, students enter the Haas Undergraduate Program divided in cohorts. The cohorts allow students to navigate their major experience with a smaller group of their classmates. Activities are centered on social, community involvement and a host of other engagement opportunities. Each of the six cohorts has around 60 students.

Class of 2014
Axe Cohort Leaders
Angie Ngo <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Sonia Yousef <email@example.com>
Parisa Movahedi <firstname.lastname@example.org>
My name is Angie Ngo and I was born and raised in San Jose, CA, Bay Area! During my spare time if I am not watching "Law and Order: Special Victims Unit," you can find me hanging out with friends playing taboo, going to flea markets/swap meets in the area, or laughing at live stand-up comedy shows. A big part of me at Cal serves as peer counselor for the SLAS/EOP and Summer Bridge community which aims to cater to first-generation college students. A quote I try to live by is from Bill Cosby which says, "Decide you want it more than you are afraid of it." I hope to land a career in consulting and/or work with organizations aimed towards building a strong education system.

My name is Rosemary Hua and I'm from San Jose, CA -- go bay area! I love playing soccer, running track (especially hurdles), singing, and dancing! I dance on campus with: Danceworx, [M]ovement, AFX Dance, and Abba Modern! I'm also involved in a few student groups at Newman Hall. This year, I was elected to be a Senator in the ASUC (Cal Student Government), so feel free to email me if you have any questions about things happening on campus! I'm currently trying to get a simultaneous degree in Business Administration and Political Science, and in the future, I want to get my law degree, do a little lawyering here and there, and eventually run for public office! I'm excited to work with you guys -- it would make me really happy if you came to my cohort events. I'll give you a free hug!
Justin Li is a third year student studying Business Administration and Global Poverty and Practice. He is very passionate about improving education around the world. In high school, he started a nonprofit organization called Kenya Dream that has so far raised over $100,000, which has helped build three high schools and fund over 50 high school students' annual tuition fees. On campus, Justin is a member of The Berkeley Group. In his free time, Justin likes to make new friends, play the cello, and dance awkwardly. Justin is honored to be given the opportunity to lead the Bear Cohort (Go Bears!) with Rosemary Hua, and he will do whatever he can to make sure that everyone's experience at Haas will be amazing, fun, and of course...stress-free!
