What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, Hofstra University has provided me with an amazing education and a life full of purpose. I truly found a home on campus through communicating with my peers as well as educators. The campus is the perfect size for me. There were so many opportunities that I was provided with the set me up for success in the future. As a current senior, I would do anything to restart my college career again!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My problems with Hofstra started on day one and never ended in the 1.5 semesters I was there. I'm sorry I ever applied. I tell everyone I can to stay far away from this poor excuse for an academic institution. Heed my warning and save yourself the headache and frustration. Hofstra and Zarb have a knack for providing false information or promises. Don't take anything they say during the open house at face value. I was told I'd be able to do an independent study during my interview, and when the time came they said no and didn't give any reason. They also advertised 10 elective classes on the website, but last semester they only offered one. Most of my professors were incapable of conveying the material in a meaningful or digestible way, and some never made eye contact with the class throughout the whole semester. Five of the ten classes in my program were a complete waste of time. If you have any complaints or want to vouch for your right to a decent education, the dean and department chairs will either ignore you or talk down to you until they think you will give up. I had an associate dean laugh in my face when I told him I wanted a better education. Use that information as you will. Incompetence must be a job requirement for all Hofstra employees. Most faculty and administration either talk down to you, tell you they'll do something or follow up with you and don't, or ignore your emails and phone calls completely. I've seen this behavior from Zarb, financial aid, housing, registrar, and HR. You would think that at least financial aid would be more careful since they're dealing with people's money. Nope. I had to watch them like a hawk and correct their same mistakes over and over again. The area is also very unsafe. The first week of my first semester there were TWO reported gun-point break-ins and robberies. Just visit Hempstead and you'll see what I'm talking about.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

At Hofstra you will have unlimited open doors for reality, hands-on learning. Your educators won't just show you ideas and hypotheses, however they will likewise show you how to apply what you are realizing so you can step out of the homeroom and have a constructive outcome on your general surroundings. You will turn out to be a piece of an affectionate network that offers a worldwide reach. You will encounter societies through your friends who originate from 47 states and 81 nations. So when the opportunity arrives for those exceptionally significant temporary job encounters, you'll have the information you need; tutors in the researchers and experts who show you; introduction to different societies and individuals, and experience through clubs, grounds sorting out, network administration, and externship and profession prep activities. Understudy in the late spring, or during the school year — or even both. Numerous Hofstra understudies do different temporary jobs – in light of the fact that they can and on the grounds that they are prepared. You can change the world. You have all that you need.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If you are looking for a college experience that includes small class sizes, an array of clubs and a strong Liberal Arts Program, attend Hofstra University. It definitely feels as though the academic and career center staff care about their students and they are committed to giving resources to help further your education. In some cases the school is lacking, for example, many commuter students complain that not enough is done for them to feel as though they are an integral part of the community. Additionally, diversity is lacking. As a black female on campus, there are many instances where I feel seen but not heard. Small classes are definitely an advantage because you can connect with students in your area of study as well as have a more intimate relationship with your professors. The facilities are great, and over all Hofstra is a pretty good Liberal Arts School.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, Hofstra is a great school with many opportunities for almost anybody. The variety of different majors to study at this university is astonishing. The facility is overall average with some professors being great and others not knowing what they're saying. I would say to come to this school if you're looking to seriously study and do the work though.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Hofstra University is that it is a very solid place to be. There is a good establishment of academic resources, it is in close proximity to New York City, and there are extracurricular opportunities that are very valuable for networking and building your resume. My one grievance despite everything is that it is so expensive, that if I hadn't originally received a scholarship to go in the first place, it definitely would not have been one of my choices. I do not like feeling constant anxiety over how I will pay for school. It is a beautiful campus, beautiful environment, but needs to provide more scholarship opportunities or pay more for work on campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love my school and the program I am in. There are only a few things I wish were different. One being, the surrounding area is not a good one. If you are walking around off campus you should always walk with someone else. Thats what would make living off-campus tricky for me, if I ever made that decision, since I don't own a car. My only other complaint would be the food. I understand that you can't have super high expectations when it comes to university food but I felt, as a dance major, I deserved better options in order to fuel myself throughout my, very long, days.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Through my two years at Hofstra University, I have enjoyed my time so far. My teachers have been great to me and they are always available when I have a question or am struggling with anything. Being a commuter, its always harder making friends compared to living on campus, but with Hofstra being a small campus compared to others I have felt right at home and I've made some great connections so far. With my mom attending Hofstra previously, I think that has helped me during my overall experience and I and forever thankful. I hope these next two years provide more pleasure for me and I will be graduating at a proud alumni from Hofstra University.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Hofstra is what I would consider like the Baseline of what a good school should be, like it sets the standard and all other school should be better than it. despite this Hofstra's price tag is WAY too big for what it offers which again is just the basic standards.
