While many of you have been spending your Holiday Break catching up with family and friends, there has been quite the renovation going on at the Hofstra Fitness Center. On January 3rd, crews began the process of sanding down the old gym floor to bring the Hofstra community a professionally designed court that will be admired by students for years to come.While the sanding process made for a few dusty days around the facility, progress was quickly made, as workers sealed and then lined the new floor. Once the lining was done, the tedious job of painting the multitude of lines on the floor commenced. Watching the attention to detail that these workers had was truly something to see.
As I sit here writing this blog, the final coat of finish is continuing to dry on the new and improved floor. The renewed energy of the entire facility is palpable, as the new floor has brought a brighter, fresher feel to the building. The newly painted boundary lines are very distinct, which will provide players with a better playing experience. All in all, the new floor cements the Hofstra Fitness Center's status as a first-class facility. A big thanks goes out to Hofstra Vice President of Student Affairs Sandy Johnson, Dean of Students Pete Libman, and Senior Associate Athetic Director for Facilities Jay Artinian. Without their help and dedication, this project would never have happened.
So as you return from what I hope was a relaxing and rejuvenating winter break, make sure you stop by the Fitness Center and check out the new floor. I promise you you won't be disappointed!
