HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. - The Fifth Annual Hofstra Athletics Mentoring Night, presented by Capital One Bank, will take place Tuesday, November 9 at David S. Mack Hall.  The event will begin at 7 p.m.

Mentoring Night is one of the signature student-athlete development events of the year.  The event welcomes former student-athletes back to campus to meet with current junior and senior student-athletes about a variety of topics including career development, networking, interview tips and utilizing the experiences obtained as a student-athlete to stand out in today's challenging job market.

Over 25 former student-athletes will return to campus for the event ranging in fields from marketing, sales and finance to medicine, law, and education.  The keynote speaker for the evening will be Anthony Perettine '86, Executive Vice President at Capital One Equipment Leasing and Finance, a subsidiary of Capital One Bank.  Perettine, a former men's lacrosse player for Hofstra is also a member of the Pride Club Board of Directors and recently served on the 2010 Hall of Fame Committee.

This is the first year in which Hofstra Athletics Mentoring Night is presented by Capital One Bank.  On October 12, Hofstra Athletics announced a new partnership with Capital One Bank and the comprehensive agreement includes presenting sponsor rights of Mentoring Night to assist with the Pride's ongoing student-athlete development efforts.
