Reviews Dorm Life

  • Dorm life at Hofstra is pretty good. Rooms are comfortably livable. Bathrooms are not elegant but are more than good enough to get the job done.…

    Many places to eat on campus. you might get coupons to eat off campus throughout the year from various handouts in the student center. only sucky thing is that all the places on south side of campus close at nine and on weekends.

    The food diversity is very good, nevertheless the food is pretty expensive. We have Au Bon Pan, Starbucks, Sbarro, Subway and other food restaurants. We use our ID cards with a certain amount of money on it for food.

    Meh. It's hard to eat healthy on campus because there's so many tempting options. The sushi bar is pretty decent, however, so I'll give them that. You get tired of the smells of the food places really fast, but there's food in abundance. It's not cheap though, so definitely get a meal plan.

    The food does become repetitive but is good for college food. Fresh veggies and fruit are great and the eggs are always yummy.

    A majority of dining locations offer fruit bars and salad bars with premium ingredients. The dining hall in Hofstra's Student Center also offers great vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options in the forms of custom pastas, custom sandwiches, and smoothies and shakes. However, the food prices are exorbitant, a box of cereal at Dutch Treats, Hofstra's 24/7 market, charges $7.15.

    There are many sororities on campus, for girls and boys. They have many traditions and one of them is going to a bar called Mchebes close to campus every Tuesday, just for Greek life.

    Greek life is small but successful. There are no official sorority or fraternity houses, but many members choose to live together off campus.

    Statistics says Greek life is not very big. The presence of Fraternities and Sororities on campus is huge. Getting involved in Greek life is really fun.
