From Hartford's athletic website: "Hartford, which has posted a combined GPA of 3.0 or higher in each of the last 15 semesters, saw an average of 70 percent of its student-athletes record a 3.0 in one or both semesters last year. In addition, 43 percent of Hawk student-athletes notched at least a 3.5 while five percent registered perfect 4.0 GPA's for the 2012-13 academic year."[10] "The University of Hartford clinched its second-straight America East Academic Cup in 2012-13 after posting the highest grade-point average of any school in the 18-year history of the award. Compiling a 3.24 GPA in 2012-13, the Hawks won their third Academic Cup all-time."[11]

Mascot and nickname

From Hartford's athletic website: "Howie is well known among the University of Hartford community and fans, and has been known for his on court antics during basketball games. The current version of Howie the Hawk began its tenure during the winter of 2008-09."[12] "The nickname originated in the late 1940's when the school competed as Hillyer College. It is believed that the nickname stemmed from spectators having to climb four flights of stairs in the old Chauncey Harris School on Hudson Street in Hartford to the "Hawk's Nest" to watch basketball and wrestling events."[13]
