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.

    I love Hofstra and I'm so glad I chose to come here. The campus is beautiful and they are always doing their best to make sure everything looks good. They have a bunch of different food and everyone that goes here is so accepting.

    I really like the atmosphere of the campus. It's clean and everyone is kind and friendly and inclusive to everyone. The food is kind of awful and has been getting more expensive every year I've attended. I love the campus but I feel like it could be even better if the administration would actually listen to their students.

  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    I never really planned on just applying and picking one college, but I only visited Hofstra and instantly fell in love with it. I know it sounds crazy to just hope that they accept you, but they did and I am estatic to be apart of the Pride. Everyone that I have talked to has been extremely helpful and caring towards myself and my family, and August can’t come sooner!

    Hofstra is a very welcoming and diverse community. It is in a great location with its proximity to the city and how easy it is to access transportation there. There is always a lot to do on campus and a great deal of clubs to join!

    I am currently a Sophomore at Hofstra and I know this may sound cliche, but this past year has been the best year of my life. Since it is a Liberal Arts school I have been able to get involved with so much, from the On-Campus Radio Station to even an acapella group. I have grown so much as a person over the year and I can't wait to see who I will be after the four years.

    Hofstra University is truly a home away from home. As soon as you step onto campus, you really experience a feeling of community that I wasn't able to find at any other school I visited. All of the other students and faculty here are so dedicated to their crafts and they all are here to support you and watch you succeed.
