The CAA Honors 183 Hofstra Student-Athletes For Academic Excellence

The Colonial Athletic Association announced that 183 Hofstra University student-athletes have been awarded the CAA Commissioner’s Academic Award for excellence in the classroom during the 2015-16 academic year.

The CAA Commissioner’s Academic Award gives special recognition to those student-athletes who have distinguished themselves both in the classroom and in the athletic arena. Those student-athletes who are members of a team in a CAA sport and achieved at least a 3.20 grade point average based on semester/quarter performance or cumulative GPA receive this prestigious award.

“We are extremely excited and proud of the 183 Hofstra student-athletes who have been honored with the CAA Commissioner’s Academic Award,” Hofstra Vice President and Director of Athletics Jeffrey A. Hathaway said. “I thank each of these outstanding students for their commitment to academics and for setting a high standard for all of our student-athletes. In addition, thanks go to our coaches, staff and the University Advisement staff that all stress the importance of our academic mission on a daily basis.  On behalf of the entire Hofstra community we send our congratulations to all 183 young women and men for this great honor.”
