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.

    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!

    Hofstra has been everything I wanted in a school and more! Literally it's a fairly small sized school, but the resources and connections are endless. Their programs are very well established and it's easy to study diverse subjects.

    Hofstra is a great school with so many majors and opportunities offered to all students. I also like that there are so many clubs and activities that you can join. Plus it is only a train ride away from NYC!

    Hofstra is a great college both academically and providing plenty activities for its students. There are so many on-campus activities, clubs, and opportunities to explore Manhattan every week. This is a very expensive school; but it is definitely making college a great experience.

    Expensive but worth the money. Internship and job opportunities are high due to being so close to NYC. The campus is nice but the surrounding area isn't that great.

    Hofstra has a beautiful campus. The people, both student and staff are extremely helpful and kind. The tuition is very costly.

    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.
