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 boasts a beautiful campus, a strong business program and great student life! You will have a lot of fun there while also making strong connections in an extensive alumni network- joining Greek life or another club or sport is strongly encouraged as you will probably learn the most from this experience! The school itself is perfectly sized- big enough to meet a lot of people and really get the college experience, but small enough that you don't feel overwhelmed and you still get enough teacher-student attention.

    An overpriced college, great for all academic studies. There are many resources but the price tag is way too high.

    Communication and Business school have great teachers and classes. The nightlife is fun with the bars and house parties. Meal plan is expensive and is not that great.

    Hofstra is an university that makes every student feel welcome and helps them to be able to embrace themselves, whether it's their nationality or who they are. The diversity and friendliness of Hofstra University is what makes it such a great college. It is easy to be able to spread and represent Hofstra P.R.I.D.E (which stands for personal responsibility, respect for self and others, integrity,diversity, and expression).

    Hofstra is a private school with a large focus on science or media, it seems. There are plenty of options for housing. They give out scholarships to those who ask for them, so be on the lookout for opportunities because you definitely need a scholarship to pay for this school!

    Very homey feel on the campus. The faculty appear to be very well educated. Students were kind and helpful.

    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.
