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 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.

    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.
