THIS IS HOFSTRA UNIVERSITY

H

ofstra University provides a dynamic college experience tailored for engaged and ambitious individuals. Students find pride and purpose at Hofstra, through small classes, a faculty whose primary concern is teaching, cutting edge technology, extensive library resources, internships, and active and compelling educational programs that appeal to their interests and abilities. The Hofstra community is driven, dynamic and energetic, helping students find and focus their strengths to prepare them for a successful future. In its relatively short 76-year history, Hofstra has established itself as a world-class institution of higher education and cultural enterprise. Each academic year, the Hofstra campus and the programs offered grow and change to meet the demands of our students and our community. Hofstra opened in 1935 as a commuter school with all classes and offices housed in one building. Since those early days, Hofstra has evolved into an international institution with a student body hailing from 50 states and territories, and 72 countries around the world. The beautiful campus is an accredited arboretum with 115 buildings on 240 acres. There are approximately 4,000 students living on campus, and Hofstra offers them and all students an extensive array of academic and social activities. Additionally, Hofstra’s close proximity to Manhattan means that students have easy access to the wondrous cultural, social and career offerings of the city. While the campus and its offerings have changed, what has remained consistent throughout the years is the sense of community on campus, the eagerness of our students to learn and the commitment of the Hofstra faculty and administration to provide a challenging education that encourages the pursuit of lifelong learning. The Colleges and Schools of the University are: Hofstra College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Frank G. Zarb School of Business, School of Communication, School of Education, Health and Human Services, Maurice A. Deane School of Law, School for University Studies, Honors College, Hofstra University Continuing Education and Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine at Hofstra University. Bachelor’s degrees are offered in about 150 areas of study. Graduate degrees are offered, including Ph.D., Ed.D., Psy.D., Au.D., J.D., and M.D. degrees, advanced certificates and professional diplomas, in more approximately 160 programs of study.

Hofstra joined with North Shore-LIJ Health System in announcing plans to establish a medical school on the University campus in October 2007. The new school, which welcomed its first class in July 2011, is the first allopathic (MD) medical school in Nassau County and the first in New York State since 1963. In October 2011 the Commission on Presidential Debates announced that it had chosen Hofstra University for the site of its October 16, 2012 Presidential Debate, which will be in the “town meeting” format. The Commission on Presidential Debates, a nonprofit, nonpartisan corporation, has sponsored and produced every presidential and vicepresidential debate since 1988. Hofstra University hosted the third and final presidential debate of the 2008 election cycle, between then Senator Barack Obama and Senator John McCain, on October 15, 2008. In 2011 Hofstra announced that it would launch a School of Engineering and Applied Science with a co-op education program that will partner with a network of industry leaders to offer students substantial work experience before they graduate. The new school, set to open in September 2012, will combine and expand the University’s existing Engineering and Computer Science departments to develop a curriculum that emphasizes high-tech research, practical work experience and inter-disciplinary study, integrating resources and faculty from other parts of the institution, including the Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine and the Frank G. Zarb School of Business. Hofstra’s School of Communication is one of the largest, most advanced non-commercial television facilities in the East. Students take classes and work in Dempster Hall, a sophisticated television production/post-production facility with two broadcast-quality studios and control rooms; two advanced online video edit suites; two Avid non-linear digital editing systems and several cuts-only video work stations. Two satellite dishes are available with one dish providing special news feeds for the broadcast journalism room, which also has access to Associated Press, Lexis-Nexis and Dow Jones services. In addition, the facility is capable of broadcasting student-produced programming to the entire campus on our

own cable channels. Also located here is the University’s radio station (WRHU/88.7-FM), audio production studios, a film/video screening room, film editing rooms, a computer laboratory, a speech performance studio and a large dance studio. Hofstra’s C.V. Starr Hall offers academic facilities that are among the most technologically advanced in the nation. Every seat in every classroom allows students direct access to the Internet and Hofstra network, including the resources of Hofstra’s Axinn Library. Hofstra’s growing computer facilities offer extensive high-tech training opportunities. There are computer terminals throughout the campus for student and faculty use, with more than 750 PC, Macintosh and UNIX workstations available in labs and classrooms. Hofstra hosts more than 500 cultural events annually, bringing thousands of scholars, dignitaries and other participants to campus. More than 200 musical and dramatic performances take place on campus each year. The University recently completed a year-long celebration of its 75th anniversary, complete with a concert, academic convocation and cake, several conferences and signature events which brought together students, faculty, alumni and community. In October 2008 the eyes of the world were on Hofstra for the final presidential debate between Barack Obama and John McCain. The debate was a transformational moment for the University, highlighting the achievements of our students and faculty and their engagement in the political process. Leading up to the debate, students and the entire community were engaged by the year-long Educate ’08 program, almost 150 lectures, conferences, and events focused on the issues, history and politics of the presidency, followed by Define ’09, which looked at the first year of his presidency. The University continues to host important political events, such as the New York State Gubernatorial Debate in 2010. The Hofstra Museum, which houses one of the largest art collections in the metropolitan area, coordinates approximately eight exhibitions annually and offers exhibition areas and an extensive outdoor sculpture collection, with 75 pieces. The Hofstra Museum is accredited by the American Association of Museums – one of only 94 universities in the nation and one of six in New York to hold that distinction.

HOFSTRA UNIVERSITY DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS The Hofstra Athletic program has flourished under Hayes’ leadership, winning 20 CAA Championships and making 33 postseason appearances, including 25 NCAA Tournaments, since the 2004-05 academic year. In 2010-11 four Pride teams advanced to postseason play with women’s soccer and men’s lacrosse reaching the NCAA Tournament as at-large selections. In addition, Hofstra hosted the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Quarterfinals in 2009 and 2011, setting a James M. Shuart Stadium attendance record in 2011.

JACK HAYES Hofstra University Director of Athletics

J

ack Hayes is in his eighth year as director of athletics at Hofstra University in 201112. Hayes was appointed by Hofstra President Stuart Rabinowitz as the University’s director of athletics on October 4, 2004. Hayes came to Hofstra after serving as an associate director of athletics at the University of Connecticut for three years.   Hayes, the eighth director of athletics at Hofstra, leads a department that includes 17 Division I teams, 90 coaches and administrative staff members and 350 student-athletes. Hayes’ proven expertise in enhancing academic and athletic success of studentathletes, strategic planning, fund-raising, marketing, university relations, facility enhancement, budgetary management, and NCAA compliance complements Hofstra University’s athletic department in its quest to further enhance its athletic program, and assist Hofstra’s student-athletes both on and off the field.

20

Hayes has placed a significant emphasis on fund-raising during his tenure. Pride Club membership reached all-time highs, both in terms of the number of contributors and funds raised as the organization topped the $1 million mark for the three consecutive years. In addition, Hofstra Athletics signed its largest corporate sponsorship deal in department history when it partnered with W.B. Mason in 2010. In 2011 Hofstra announced a 1.5 million dollar commitment from lacrosse alumnus James C. Metzger ’83, the largest gift in Hofstra Athletics history. Resources generated through fundraising efforts have been used to enhance programs and facilities available to student-athletes. Recent initiatives include the construction of the W.B. Mason Pride Lounge on the lower level of the Mack Sports Complex, baseball’s Quinn Family Grandstand and the Fried Family StudentAthlete Development Center on the second floor of the James M. Shuart Stadium Building. Other recent renovations include locker rooms, the wrestling room, athletic training rooms in Margiotta Hall and the Physical Education Center, the basketball media room in the Mack Sports Complex, a press box at the Hofstra Soccer Stadium, replacement of the turf at James M. Shuart Stadium and the construction of the Hofstra Field Hockey Stadium. In 2006 Hayes reintroduced the Hofstra Athletics Hall of Fame after more than a 50year absence, inducting five classes since that time. He also led an effort to retire the uniform numbers of prominent Hofstra student-athletes with 20 jersey retirement ceremonies held during the 2008-09 academic year.

Active on a national level, Hayes served on the NCAA Division I Lacrosse Committee from September 2006 to September 2008. In September 2010 he was appointed to the NCAA Leadership Council, which is an advisory body to the Division I Board of Directors. Hayes came to Hofstra with more than 14 years of athletic administration experience, including management positions at four Division I institutions – Connecticut, Fordham, St. John’s and Fairfield.    Hayes received a master’s degree in education in 1992 with a concentration in sport management from the University of Connecticut. He holds a bachelor’s degree (1989) from Providence College, where he was a member of Providence’s lacrosse team. He was also awarded a certificate of completion in 2001 from the Sports Management Institute, Consortium of the Universities of Michigan and Texas.   A native of Providence, Rhode Island, Hayes graduated from the Providence Country Day School where he lettered in football, basketball and lacrosse. He was inducted, as a member of his high school basketball team, into the Providence Country Day Athletic Hall of Fame in October 2004. In October 2010 Hayes became a two-time member of Providence Country Day’s Athletic Hall of Fame when he was inducted along with the rest of his high school lacrosse team. Hayes resides in East Northport, New York, with his wife Bridget, daughter Katie (9), and sons Matt (6), Tommy (3) and Michael (1).

ATHLETIC ACADEMIC SUPPORT

H

ofstra University is committed to the pursuit of academic and athletic excellence. The University views participation in intercollegiate athletics as benefiting the student-athlete in an educationally enhancing experience beyond any other opportunity available. Hofstra also realizes the time commitment made by student-athletes and has committed the facilities and resources to support all students. The University Tutorial Program (UTP) provides free tutoring in every subject area to any Hofstra student. Students are able to obtain up to 1 1/2 hours of individual tutorial assistance per week for up to three courses. They are also able to utilize the various help labs on campus, which specialize in providing assistance in writing, business and QM, and biology and chemistry. In addition to this service, student-athletes are assigned an academic advisor, through the Center for University Advisement, who helps address the various needs of student‑athletes. The academic advisor emphasizes four areas in their efforts to ensure the academic success of Hofstra’s student-athletes. Area one is academic counseling. Services are provided in the areas of academic planning, career planning, personal counseling, and campus and community referrals. The advisor also meets with prospective student‑athletes, at the coach’s request, to share the many benefits of a Hofstra University education. Area two is academic advising. The academic advisor serves as the primary advisor for first-year and undecided student-athletes, and also assists upperclassmen who have declared a major. Area three is academic monitoring. The advisor monitors the academic progress of student‑athletes to ensure compliance with Hofstra University, NCAA and conference regulations. The advisor’s regular communication with the faculty and coaches provide opportunities for early intervention should academic difficulties arise. Area four is study halls. The University Tutorial Program supports athletic study halls by providing tutors in various subjects as necessary. The academic advisors also assess the needs of individual student‑athletes to provide the most effective study environment. The assessment tool administered by the Center for University Advisement is also used to provide various enrichment seminars for the student‑athletes such as time management, writing skills, campus resources, and surviving the college transition. In 2010 The Fried Center for Student-Athlete Development was opened on the second level of the James M. Shuart Stadium Building. The center houses the offices of the Student-Athlete Services Staff, as well as a large computer lab with printer access for use by Hofstra student-athletes, a quiet study area with wireless internet access and two group study/tutor rooms with power point access and white boards.

THE COLONIAL ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION

T

he Colonial Athletic Association continues to build on its reputation as one of the nation’s top collegiate conferences both athletically and academically.

The CAA encompasses five of the nation’s nine largest metropolitan areas with a geographic footprint that stretches from Boston to Atlanta. The conference has produced 16 national team champions in five different sports, 33 individual national champions, 12 national players of the year, 12 national coaches of the year and 12 Honda Award winners. Just as impressive, however, are the honors accumulated away from competition, which include five Rhodes Scholars and 22 NCAA post-graduate scholars. In 2010-11, more than 1,900 of the league’s 4,000 student-athletes received the Commissioner’s Academic Award after posting at least a 3.2 grade point average while lettering in a varsity sport. The conference had 21 teams in 12 different sports receive NCAA Public Recognition Awards based on the latest Academic Progress Report released in 2011. The landscape of the conference stretches along the majority of the East Coast, and includes six of the nation’s top 25 media markets – New York (1), Philadelphia (4), Boston (7), Atlanta (8), Washington, D.C. (9) and Baltimore (25). The number of television homes in the CAA market exceeds 20 million. The CAA conducts championships in 23 sports. Male athletes compete for championships in baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, lacrosse, soccer, swimming & diving, tennis, track & field and wrestling. Female athletes battle for conference titles in basketball, cross country, field hockey, golf, lacrosse, rowing, soccer, softball, swimming & diving, tennis, track & field and volleyball. In 2010-11, 25 teams earned NCAA Tournament berths and 50 studentathletes received All-America honors in 13 different sports. The conference has made its presence known nationally in men’s basketball with two teams – George Mason (2006) and VCU (2011) – advancing to the NCAA Final Four over the past five years. Three CAA teams earned NCAA Tournament berths for the first time in 2011 as conference champion Old Dominion was joined by VCU and George Mason. VCU knocked off USC, Georgetown, Purdue, Florida State and top-seeded Kansas, while Mason defeated Villanova. The Rams were ranked No. 6 in the final ESPN/USA Today Top 25 poll, which was the highest ranking ever for a CAA team. In 2006, George Mason captured the nation’s imagination by becoming the first mid-major program since 1979 to reach the Final Four, posting victories over Michigan State, North Carolina, Wichita State and Connecticut along the way. Six CAA women’s basketball teams advanced to postseason play in 2011. James Madison represented the conference in the NCAA Tournament after capturing its second straight conference championship. Delaware, Drexel, UNC Wilmington, Old Dominion and VCU participated in the WNIT, with the Seahawks advancing to the second round. ODU, which won an NCAA-record 17 straight CAA titles from 1992-2008, boasts three national championships (1979, 1980, 1985) and was national runner-up in 1997.

2011-12 Men’s and Women’s Golf

The conference also excels in many other sports. CAA squads have combined to win 10 field hockey national titles since the championship began in 1981. At least two women’s soccer teams have advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament in three of the past four seasons and William & Mary gave the CAA a team in the final 16 of the NCAA Men’s Soccer Championship for the sixth time in the last nine years. In men’s cross country, William & Mary advanced to the NCAA Championship for the 12th straight year and finished 19th overall. In the pool, Towson’s Meredith Budner finished as the runner-up in the 500 freestyle and 1650 freestyle at the 2011 NCAA Championship and received All-America honors along with George Mason’s Ashley Danner. Delaware and Towson have each reached the Final Four of the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championship in the past decade. The CAA has sent multiple teams to the NCAA Baseball Championship in nine of the last 14 years and has had at least 12 players selected in the eight of the last nine Major League Baseball drafts. The conference also boasts numerous All-Americans in lacrosse, tennis, golf, track and field, women’s lacrosse and wrestling. CAA member institutions are committed to excellence in the classroom. The Colonial Academic Alliance was created in 2002 by the league’s presidents with a goal of expanding their partnership to all aspects of university life outside of intercollegiate athletics. Among the programs that have been established are an undergraduate research conference, coordination of study abroad programs and granting visiting academic status to student-athletes traveling to an away contest so that they have access to libraries, academic resource centers and computer labs. In 2002, two faculty members from CAA institutions were awarded academia’s most coveted distinction – the Nobel Prize. John B. Fenn, a research professor in the Department of Chemistry at Virginia Commonwealth University, received the Nobel Prize for chemistry, and Vernon Smith, a professor of economics and law at George Mason University, shared the Nobel Prize in economic sciences. Commissioner Thomas E. Yeager has guided the CAA since its inception. The conference traces its roots back to 1983 when three of its current members- George Mason University, James Madison University, and the College of William and Mary - were aligned with East Carolina University, the United States Naval Academy and the University of Richmond as a basketball league (ECAC South). During the next two years, the league added 11 sports, acquired two new members (the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and American University) and decided to form a new association. The transformation from ECAC South to CAA took place on June 6, 1985. Charter members George Mason, James Madison, UNC Wilmington and William and Mary were joined by Old Dominion University in 1991 and by Virginia Commonwealth University in 1995. The conference added the University of Delaware, Drexel University, Hofstra University and Towson University in 2001. Georgia State University and Northeastern University became members of the conference on July 1, 2005.

HOME COURSES

Garden City Country Club

Garden City Country Club

E

isenhower Park and The Garden City Country Club serve as Hofstra’s primary home courses. Both are located just minutes from the Hofstra campus.

At Eisenhower Park, three of Long Island’s finest golf courses are open to the public, including the famed Red Course. The Red Course has a storied history, having been designed by prominent golf architect Devereux Emmet in 1914 and having hosted PGA championships as far back as 1926. A second championship-level course, the White, was designed in 1950 by Robert Trent Jones. Jones also designed the third 18-hole course at Eisenhower, the Blue. Hofstra primarily uses the White Course for its events.

Garden City Country Club

The White Course at Eisenhower measures 6,932 yards from the championship tees, 6,399 yards from the middle tees, and 5,357 yards from the forward tees. The course has elevated greens with 22 holes, as the par three’s have double identical holes. In recent years, 38 green side bunkers on the White course were renovated and 15 new tees constructed. The Garden City Country Club, a par-70 championship course was designed and built by renowned course architect Walter J. Jones in 1917. The course has undergone several renovations, but has been largely unchanged since the late 1950’s. The course has been the site of numerous local championships, including one Met Open, two Met Amateurs, four Long Island Opens and six Long Island Amateurs.

Eisnehower Park

The Garden City Country Club’s yardage is 6,727 from the gold championship tees, 6,533 from the middle tees and 6,346 from the forward tee box.

HOFSTRA GOLF PERFORMANCE CENTER

T

he Hofstra Golf teams have a dedicated practice area located in the basement of Margiotta Hall. The Hofstra Golf Performance Center contains several pieces of equipment that allows Pride golfers an opportunity to improve their game without having to travel to the course. The center contains a Tour Links 14x20 Putting Green that measures a 10.5 on the stimp meter. There is also a hitting bay that holds a Cobra Launch Monitor, which allows the coaching staff to break down the student-athletes ball speed, club head speed, launch angle and spin ratio. Combined with the latest JC Video Motion Analysis System, the coaches can work on key factors of the golf swing and single out any flaws that may occur throughout the student-athletes career. Several other swing and putting aids are available for use, including a state-of-the-art swing machine called The X Factor by Power Max. Training on the X-Factor Professional will improve your golf swing while you develop a stronger, more flexible swing motion. As you maintain good arm extension on the backswing motion, the X Factor guides your shoulder turn on the correct swing plane into a well balanced and fully-loaded backswing position. Then, as you make your weight shift on the platform and initiate your downswing you are approaching the ball striking zone on an inside path and using the correct hand and arm position which will trigger a delayed or low release and generate power and speed with maximum efficiency. By performing this rotational motion over and over, the body will develop the muscle memory needed to make this correct swing a habit.
