5 PREVIEW/ REVIEW The University of Hartford women s golf team is looking forward to another successful spring season. The Hawks made great strides during the fall and will look to carry that momentum over into the fi nal fi ve tournaments of the year. Head coach Donna Harris returns fi ve letterwinners from last year s squad and also adds three newcomers to the roster. The group will have to overcome the loss of Juliana Carrillo, who graduated last spring after one of the best careers in the program s history. She led the team in scoring average over her fi nal three seasons and was a three-time all-conference selection. Several players have stepped up to fi ll the void. Junior Sadie Heald (New Haven, CT) posted one of the lowest stroke averages (83.56) on the team during the fall and carded four rounds of 80 or better. Classmate Paige Gauthier (Claremont, NH) wasn t far behind Heald in stroke average (84.00) and recorded a career-low round of 78 at the ECAC Championship. Harris will count on each to continue their strong play into the spring. Senior Megan Claxton (Calgary, Alberta) is the veteran presence in Hartford s lineup. She has played in every tournament over the past three years and will be counted on to lead the team. She ranked second on the team in stroke average last season and will look to close out her career on a high note. Junior Kara Sikorski (Hatfi eld, MA) showed great consistency during the fall, playing in every tournament and tying her career-low round (80) at the Mt. Holyoke Invitational. Strong contributions from Sikorski and classmate Catie Dillman (Cicero, NY) would go a long way toward Hartford s success. Emily Linn (Englewood, NJ) had the most impact of the three golfers in the freshmen class. She played in the fi nal fi ve tournaments and led the team in stroke average (82.22). She also recorded the best fi nish by a Hartford golfer during the fall, a tie for eighth at the Sacred Heart Invitational. Classmates Marissa Kallaugher (East Longmeadow, MA) and Kelsey Walsh (Falmouth, MA) saw limited action but will look to make their mark in the spring. The Hawks start the spring season with a headto-head competition against Rutgers University in Port St. Lucie, FL on March 18, a warm-up before playing at Georgetown University s Hoya Invitational in Beallsville, MD on March Hartford will then play a tri-match against Central Connecticut State University and Boston University on April 11 at Wethersfi eld Country Club in Wethersfi eld, CT. The fi nal tune-up before the conference tournament will come at the annual Hartford Invitational on April The 36-hole event will be played at Rockledge Golf Club in West Hartford, CT. Included in the fi eld of nine teams are Albany, Central Connecticut State, Fairfi eld, Hampton, Lehigh, Mount St. Mary s, Sacred Heart and Wagner. The season concludes at the 2009 America East Championship on April at Shaker Ridge Country Club in Albany, NY. The Hawks, who fell short of the conference title by only one shot last season, have fi n- ished as runner-up the past three seasons. Hartford is looking to change the story line this year and bring the title back to West Hartford. A win would be the second in fi ve years, as the Hawks took home their fi rst-ever conference championship in The Hartford women's golf team enjoyed a solid season in The Hawks competed in 11 events and posted runner-up fi nishes at three tournaments, including falling only one stroke shy at the America East Championship. The fall season was highlighted by a head-to-head win against Central Connecticut State University and a second-place fi nish at the Mt. Holyoke Invitational. The Hawks wrapped up the fall with a third-place showing at the Fairleigh Dickinson Invitational. After a slow start to the spring season, Hartford picked things up over the fi nal three events. The Hawks fi nished fourth at their own tournament before wrapping up the year with consecutive runner-up fi nishes at the CCSU Spring Invitational and the America East Championship. Albany shot 657 to win the conference title by a single shot. Senior Juliana Carrillo played in every tournament and led the team in scoring average (83.80) for the third straight year. She also tied for medalist honors at the conference championship and earned all-conference honors for the third time in her career. The rest of the Hawks also enjoyed strong seasons. Junior Megan Claxton posted the lowest scoring average of her career (84.80), recorded fi ve top-10 fi nishes and carded a career-low round of 75. The sophomore class also stepped up their game. Sadie Heald led the group in scoring average (85.35) and fi nished fourth at the America East Championship to earn all-conference honors. Paige Gauthier (86.89) and Kara Sikorski (89.06) also posted career-low scoring averages and played in 10 of 11 events STATS & RESULTS SCORING LOW PLAYER ROUNDS STROKES AVERAGE ROUND Juliana Carrillo Megan Claxton Sadie Heald Paige Gauthier Kara Sikorski Catie Dillman Brittani Hebenton Events: 11 Rounds: 20 Strokes: 6,783 Average: DATES TOURNAMENT TEAMS PLACE SCORE CHAMPION Sept Dartmouth Invitational 14 4th 657 (+81) Harvard (603) Sept Mt.

9 ADMINISTRATION WALTER HARRISON University of Hartford President Growth, vitality, and service to the community are key attributes of Walter Harrison s fi rst 10 years as president of the University of Hartford. Since his appointment as the University of Hartford s fi fth president in 1998, the University has experienced a period of energy and momentum unmatched in its history. President Harrison has overseen dramatic improvements in academic quality, fi nances, and fundraising. More than 7,300 students (5,600 undergraduates and 1,700 graduate students) study at the seven schools and colleges of the University of Hartford, which is classifi ed as a doctoral research intensive university by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. The institution has seen a 15 percent increase in undergraduate enrollment, and a 23 percent increase in degrees awarded, over the past decade. A highly visible fi gure on campus, President Harrison is known for his enthusiasm for student life and University activities, and is fondly referred to as Walt by many students. During President Harrison s tenure, the University has undertaken a vigorous and comprehensive building campaign. Many of the University s residence halls have been renovated, and Hawk Hall, the University s new fi ve-story, 208-bed residence for fi rst-year students, was completed during the summer of The oval-shaped Alumni Plaza, constructed out of concrete of various colors and fi nishes, now provides students with a large gathering spot on the residential side of campus. At the heart of this construction campaign are three major additions to the University s signature academic programs: The Renée Samuels Center of the Hartford Art School (opened in January 2007), the Integrated Science, Engineering, and Technology Complex (opened in 2005), and the Mort and Irma Handel Performing Arts Center (opened in September 2008), which houses the Dance and Theatre divisions of The Hartt School. The Handel Center, located in the Upper Albany and Blue Hills neighborhoods of Hartford, one mile east of the University s campus, also contains space for community activities. Two buildings have been renovated to house two of the University s leading liberal arts programs: Psychology (East Hall) and Communications and Cinema Studies (Abrahms Hall). In 2006, the University opened new state-of-the-art athletic fi elds for soccer, lacrosse, softball, and baseball. The University s vibrant relationship with the Greater Hartford community is a hallmark of President Harrison s tenure. The University has become a recognized leader in helping to improve public schools. It is the only private university in the country with two public magnet schools on campus the University of Hartford Magnet School and the University High School of Science and Engineering. President Harrison s community involvement is extensive. He serves on the boards of directors of the Connecticut Conference of Independent Colleges and the Hartford Consortium of Higher Education. He is currently the president of the board of the Hartford Stage Company. He serves as trustee or director of a number of other Hartford-area organizations, including the Greater Hartford Arts Council, Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center, the Connecticut Science Center, and Suffi eld Academy. He is also a director of WorldBusiness Capital, an international fi nance fi rm based in Hartford. Refl ecting his longtime interest in intercollegiate athletics, President Harrison chairs the National Collegiate Athletic Association s Committee on Academic Performance, the group charged with implementing academic reforms among the nation s leading intercollegiate athletic programs, and serves on a number of other NCAA committees. He is the immediate past chair of the NCAA Executive Committee. He also serves on the Presidential Advisory Committee of the Association of Governing Boards. All this is a long way from President Harrison s beginnings as a scholar of American literature and culture. A native of Pittsburgh, he graduated from Trinity College in Hartford in 1968, then earned a master s degree from the University of Michigan in After an interim of three years to serve as a captain in the United States Air Force, President Harrison earned a doctorate from the University of California Davis. His doctoral dissertation, Out of Play: Baseball Fiction from Pulp to Art, was one of the earliest scholarly treatments of baseball and its place in American life. In 1982 President Harrison left full-time teaching to take an administrative position at Colorado College. He joined Gehrung Associates University Relations Counselors in 1985, becoming president of the fi rm shortly thereafter. In 1989 President Harrison moved to the University of Michigan, where he became vice president of university relations and secretary of the university. President Harrison and his wife, Dianne, a scholar of 19th-century Victorian literature and mystery literature, make their home in Russell House, the president s residence at the University of Hartford. PATRICIA H. MEISER Director of Athletics & Special Assistant to the President Pat Meiser, in her 16th year at the University of Hartford, serves as the director of athletics and special assistant to the president. One of only 22 women director of athletics among the 329 institutions competing at the Division I level, Meiser has 37 years of experience in coaching and athletics administration. In May of 1999, she was named one of the nation s top 50 women s sports executives by Street & Smith s Sports Business Journal, and in June of 2006 she was named the Northeast Region I-AAA GeneralSports TURF Systems Athletics Director of the Year. At Hartford, Meiser heads a team that is responsible for growing the athletics and academic quality of the program, enhancing revenue and extending the program into the community. In Meiser s tenure, seven sports (women s basketball, men s soccer, women s soccer, men s golf, women s golf, men s tennis and women s volleyball) have won America East Conference championships and either reached NCAA Division I tournament or national postseason play. Basketball, in particular, has emerged with Meiser s hiring of Jennifer Rizzotti and Dan Leibovitz. The women s basketball team has been crowned America East Conference champion and reached the NCAA Tournament in 2002, 2005, 2006 and The men s team set a school record with 18 wins in and advanced to the America East Championship fi nals for the fi rst time in school history. Revenue enhancement has also been an area of growth for Hartford under Meiser s leadership. This has taken place through an expanded fund raising and alumni relations effort, development of a corporate sponsorship program, implementation of a licensing program and successful grant submissions. Most signifi cantly, Hartford athletics embarked on a $10 million athletics capital campaign in April of The campaign, called Home Field Advantage, funded the renovation of the existing soccer and lacrosse fi eld, the relocation and construction of a softball fi eld, the construction of a baseball fi eld and will include construction of a track surrounding an all-purpose fi eld. The ground breaking for Home Field Advantage took place in April of 2005, and Phase I of the project was completed in Phase II is presently under way. Meiser s commitment to academics is well documented and demonstrated through the success of her student-athletes. Hartford has been among the leaders in The America s East s Academic Cup standings each of the past 10 years. The Hawks won the Cup in This past academic year, the average student-athlete GPA was Reaching out in the community is important for Meiser. She is past chair of the Greater Hartford Convention and Visitors Bureau and her appointment came at a critical time as the city opened a $350 million convention center. Meiser was named a Connecticut Woman of Merit by the Girl Scouts in June She is a board member of both the Connecticut Special Olympics and the Connecticut Women s Hall of Fame. In October of 2007, Meiser served as Co-Chair of the CWHF Gala that celebrated the 35th anniversary of Title IX. The evening brought together the top female Olympians and national champions with ties to the state of Connecticut. Meiser has also been involved with various intercollegiate committees and organizations at the conference, regional and national levels. She serves on the Executive Committee of NACDA and is a past President of the Division I-AAA Athletics Directors Association (NACDA), has been a professional sport liaison, member of the soccer rules committee and active as a NCAA Certifi cation representative. Over the years, she has also served a variety of roles in the America East Conference and is presently a member of the Executive Committee. Prior to joining the Hawks, Meiser was the associate athletics director for administration and senior women s administrator at the University of Connecticut. During her 10 years at Connecticut, she played a pivotal role in the rejuvenation of the athletics program. Before arriving at Connecticut, Meiser was the head women s basketball coach and a tenured faculty member at Penn State ( ). She gave the fi rst women s basketball scholarship at Penn State in 1974 and advanced the program to Top-20 status in the late 1970s. In addition, she coached the Gold Medal-winning East team in the inaugural 1979 National Sports Festival. Meiser holds a bachelor s degree in health and physical education (1969) from West Chester University and a M.Ed. in education (1971) and an MBA in business administration (1986) from Penn State.

10 UNIVERSITY OF HARTFORD SMALL CLASSES, BIG OPPORTUNITY At the University of Hartford, classes are small, but the list of academic offerings is not. The University is a comprehensive, independent institution, offering educational and career programs in 89 undergraduate and 33 graduate areas of study in its seven schools and colleges. It prides itself on providing the intimacy of a liberal arts college with the creativity and intellectual excitement of a university. While the range of studies offered at the University is diverse, so, too, are the people. Enrolled are 4,842 full-time undergraduates, 841 part-time undergraduates, and 1,653 graduate students, representing 45 states and 58 countries. The full-time student-to-faculty ratio is 14:1. TRADITION The University of Hartford dates back to 1877, when the fi rst of its original three schools was founded. The Hartford Art School (1877), Hillyer College (1879), and The Hartt School (1920) joined in 1957 to form the University of Hartford. The origins of the University can be traced back to the wife of Mark Twain. Mrs. Samuel Clemens, along with Harriett Beecher Stowe of Uncle Tom s Cabin fame, formed an art society that later became the Hartford Art School. EXPANSION The University has undertaken several ambitious building projects over the past half decade. A $34-million Integrated Science, Engineering, and Technology complex, which included major renovations to the adjacent Dana Hall (one of the original buildings on campus), opened in On its heels, new turf athletics fi elds brought a much different look to the opposite end of campus, benefi tting students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community residents. The new Renée Samuels Center opened in January 2007, providing the Hartford Art School with new space for its photography and media arts programs. In fall 2007, Hawk Hall, a fi ve-story residential facility for fi rst-year students and its adjacent Alumni Plaza, a new outdoor gathering place for students, greeted students returning to campus. Now open just a mile from the University s main campus, the Mort and Irma Handel Performing Arts Center houses fi ve dance studios, four theatre rehearsal studios and two black box theatres. It is a vibrant center for dance and theatre instruction and performances at one of the key gateways to the city of Hartford. The University of Hartford also houses two public magnet schools on its campus an elementary school for students from Hartford and several neighboring towns and University High School of Science and Engineering, which saw its legacy class graduate this past June. QUALITY The University prides itself on its growing academic reputation, best illustrated by a consistent year-to-year increase in applications (more than 12,000 received annually) and selectivity (the University s acceptance rate is lower than at any time in its history). The educational experience takes place in small, supportive classroom environments. LOCATION The charm of the suburbs and the opportunities of the city all come alive at the University of Hartford. Situated on a 340-acre, wooded, suburban campus, the University borders Hartford, West Hartford, and Bloomfi eld. Midway between Boston and New York City, downtown Hartford, only fi ve miles away, is gaining a name for itself. HARTFORD AND THE REGION Dubbed New England s rising star, Hartford is enjoying a renaissance fueled by the development of its riverfront. With retail and residential development taking off, downtown Hartford is poised to become a 24-hour hub of culture, arts, and entertainment. Within Hartford s borders, one can tour the home of Mark Twain, mingle with 5,000-plus years of art at the Wadsworth Atheneum, and explore history at the oldest state house in the country. The Bushnell and Hartford Stage Company offer traveling Broadway shows and other award-winning productions. The XL Center and New England Dodge Music Center offer topname concerts while the former is home to the American Hockey League s Hartford Wolfpack. The surrounding Connecticut countryside offers unlimited and varied get-away possibilities, including skiing, spring garden tours, fall festivals, and two of the world s largest casino and entertainment complexes. It s no wonder noted economist Richard Florida has ranked Hartford in the Top 20 of cool places to live, work, start a family and have fun. CAMPUS ACTIVITIES Numerous social, recreational, and entertainment alternatives exist for students on campus. More than 100 groups, clubs, and organizations, including campus media, student government, fraternities and sororities add to student life.
