Hempstead, NY - On Tuesday, February 14, the Hofstra Athletics Department held its annual 3.0 Academic Ceremony at halftime of the men's basketball game versus the University of Delaware. This ceremony recognized those student-athletes who achieved a 3.0 GPA or above in the Spring and/or Fall semesters of 2011. 

This year, Hofstra honored 276 student-athletes, which included 24 who earned a perfect 4.0 GPA. To acknowledge their academic achievements, student-athletes from all 17 teams were congratulated at half court by several Hofstra University administrators. This included, Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs Herman Berliner, Senior Vice Provost for Academic Affairs and Dean of Graduate Studies Liora Schmelkin, Director of Athletics Jack Hayes, Faculty Athletics Representative Michael Barnes and Associate Dean of University Advisement Rachel Peel-Macandrew. 

Thank you to all the faculty, staff, and administrators that assisted our student-athletes in achieving their highest potential in the classroom.
