The Student Body Collective was established in 2013 alongside three additional student-run enterprises, the SBB emerged as part of the COM's effort to provide LIU students with hands-on business experience. All profits go towards student scholarships. We are the last remaining original student-run business.
Experiencing a sustained increase in sales and enjoying a positive reputation, our organization has arrived at a pivotal moment. It is time for us to elevate the SBC to new heights in its journey.
In March of 2014, the Student Body Boutique first opened on the second floor of Hillwood Commons.During 2014-2019, the SBB continued to bring in new merchandise, however due to minimal foot traffic and an overflow of old goods, the store did not turn a profit.In September of 2019 the store was relocated to the first floor of Hillwood Commons and a grand re-opening was held.
