Hagan Arena - Priority seating - 5-26 & 27

Dear Hawks fans,

Spring has arrived on campus, classes and exams have concluded and our graduating seniors are anxiously awaiting their commencement this coming weekend. It seems hard to believe that basketball season ended just a few short weeks ago and we extended our thanks and best wishes to our senior athletes, Tasheed Carr, Edwin Lashley and Ahmad Nivins at the annual awards banquet on April 17th.

We are thrilled to share with you that the coaches and returning players, along with our Sports Information Staff, have moved into their new offices. The Basketball Center is nearly complete and is already humming with activity. We look forward to officially announcing the name of the center in the coming weeks - and we think you will be pleased!

Work on the Hagan Arena is moving along at a rapid pace with construction on time and plans already underway to dedicate the arena on Saturday, October 17th. Please mark your calendars and plan to join us for what promises to be a memorable event.

As we have shared with you at various times over the last season, we will be initiating a Priority Seating program for the Hagan Arena and we are committed to having the seating complete well in advance of the opening game scheduled for Friday, November 13th against Drexel.

As we look to move this process along, we invite you to join us for an information session that will address many of your questions and also encourage you to provide feedback on the program.

Information sessions have been scheduled for:

Tuesday, May 26th, 6:30 - 8:00pm, Mandeville Teletorium and

Wednesday, May 27th, 8am - 9:30am Mandeville Room 111

Please RSVP to Eileen Brown at Refreshments will be available.


Don DiJulia, Director of Athletics
Katie Shields, Assistant Vice President
