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 very exciting, and is filled with opportunities. I have received many interview just because of being a Hofstra student and being in the special five year masters program. Hofstra is the best decision I could have made for my college education!

    I have never regretted my decision to go to Hofstra. I love this school and it has given me tremendous opportunities. As a local student to long island, it is easy to go home but I also have my own life here on campus.

    Hofstra is a great school to explore your interests and find who you are. With over 140 majors and over 200 clubs, there is a wide array of things to get involved with. There are always people to help you out along the way, you just have to take advantage of it.

    Hofstra is a great school with many opportunities. The campus is beautiful, and you will feel like this school is a home away from home. Everyone is so welcoming, and the goal of all the faculty is for you to succeed.

    the school makes itself seem a lot better than it actually is. i regret coming here and am currently looking to transfer. don't waste your time and money here. the administration is not helpful and you're basically on your own. not at all worth it for the $60k price tag. for lgbt students considering coming here, the school loves to advertise itself as lgbt friendly but the reality is when a student has actual problems relating to their lgbt identity, the school does nothing to alleviate the situation or accommodate the student. if you're smart you'll go somewhere else.

    Hofstra is a prestigious school that offers a lot of majors and minors. It is a healthy community that cares about its student body. It has left a good impression on me so far because there is so much to do!
