It's Buzzer Time!

Spring is just around the corner and for many of us here at Hofstra, that means it's time to get our spring haircuts! For the 5th year, and my 3rd year as a participant, the Hofstra Men's Roller Hockey Team will be holding their annual St. Baldrick's Day event. The event will take place next Wed., March 14th, during common hour in the Student Center Atrium. This is a collective effort by students, faculty, and members of the administration. Last year almost $10,000 was raised in support of children's cancer research.

This year, as an added challenge to our community, some special folks here at Hofstra have graciously agreed to go under the "buzzer" if we reach certain fundraising milestones. The goal for this years event is $25,000 and Provost Herman Berliner has agreed to shave his head if we meet this goal. Men's Head Soccer Coach Richie Nuttal, Chair of the Dept. of Sociology and Co-Director of the CCE, Greg Maney, and myself, have all agreed to shave our heads if we surpass $10,000. And Mario Bolanos, our Greek Advisor, has said he would do so as well if the Hofstra Greek community can collectively come up with $5,000 for this cause.

Click HERE (or go to, and enter Hofstra University event) to donate money for this worthwhile cause. And please be sure to stop by the atrium on Wed., 3/14, to cheer us on. Men's basketball coach Mo Cassaro will be on hand as well. Hope to see you there. Best, Dean Libman
