First here at Hofstra I didn't learn much that I hadn't already learned. The teachers seemed to be teaching High School material, and it just didn't meet my standards.

    Hofstra is a very good and very expensive school. There is always something to do on and off campus. In a very crappy part of long island (gang center of nassau county).

    Hofstra is not for those who aren't sure what they want to pursue. Packed with opportunities-- you just have to be able how to decipher how to find them and take advantage of all of it. Hofstra also has some really great professors -- they'll definitely challenge you and try your patience, but once they see you're trying, they can be some of the greatest people you will ever meet.

    I have had a wonderful experience at Hofstra. There is so much to do and become involved in. Hofstra helps you out a lot with career planning, the class sizes are small and the professors are wonderful.

    Great opportunities for all to thrive and succeed. Excellent staff/professional - student relationships. Gives away many scholarships based on financial need and academic grants.

    Personalized application process. Developing university, Hofstra is trying to bring itself to the national spotlight. Reminiscent of a community college, a majority of students commute to school, which hurts Hofstra's ability to create college spirit.

    The best experience anyone can have. I never knew that college life was so amazing for the academic experience. I recommend everyone to apply.
