HAMILTON, NY (10/17/2013)(readMedia)-- Two Colgate University students crave burritos so much, they've started a campaign to bring a Moe's Southwest Grill to campus.

Andrew Mazen, a graduate of Northern Highlands Regional High School, an Environmental Geography major from Upper Saddle River, NJ, and Jeremy (Jay) Lincoln, a graduate of Amherst Regional High School, and a Psychology major with a minor in Writing and Rhetoric, from Amherst, MA, are working with Colgate's Thought Into Action Entrepreneurship Institute (TIA) to make their nacho dreams come true.

If successful, Mazen and Lincoln plan to take similar action at other institutions, providing Moe's to other college campuses.

Thought into Action (TIA) is a Colgate University incubator for student ventures. Every year a select group of pioneering students prove what it really means to be an entrepreneur by taking an idea and making it 'go live'. In TIA, passionate students take their own ideas and move from theory to practice, while guided by invaluable mentorship of entrepreneurial alumni and parents.

Colgate University is a highly selective residential liberal arts institution distinguished by the dedication of its faculty and its commitment to global engagement, student-faculty research, off-campus study, sustainable practices, and utilizing technology to enhance the teaching and learning experience.
