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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If you were to ask my overall opinion of Hofstra University back in August of 2018, I would write a review that would probably scare some people away. You see, I am a first year law student. The funny thing is that when I attended my undergraduate school, Queens College, I finally got to experience a world free of clichés and stereotypes. Some of the professors even became friends. I felt as if adulthood had finally arrived. When I graduated, I was eager to move on to my next academic challenge and I was looking forward to meeting new people. So it was pretty shocking that my first day at law school was a combination of high school and boot camp in one building. Academically, I felt as if I was in boot camp. Professors often cold called students and if a student didn't know the answer, the student was humiliated in front of the entire class. Also, if you were even 30 seconds late for class you were embarrassed some more. The only positive for me was the work . It was stimulating but overwhelming at the same time. I had to establish a new routine and I also learned some short cuts so my work load wasn't as time consuming. I started to realize that over time, the cold calling stopped and so did the humiliation. The interesting thing about time is that it can open your eyes. I came to realize that like boot camp, law school is a place for the most motivated students. If you have a thick skin then guess what? You actually have a chance in this new world. Also, professors are people too. I believe the social aspect of law school required a different kind of thick skin, but a thick skin non the less. In my new law school bubble, I felt as if I was transported back into high school. Cliches, isolation, and loneliness can set in quickly. At first, I experienced quite a bit of social rejection. Unfortunately for me, I forgot that I was no longer in my fraternity from Queens College and some people were a bit more guarded here. Sometimes I saw Instagram photos or snap chats of fellow classmates and I felt even more alone. However, I learned to adapt my game plan. I stopped asking some students to hang out but I continued to be nice to everyone and I always greeted others with a friendly smile. I tried not to gossip, even if others in my group were. Also, I really tried NOT TO take it too personally. After all, we don't know what it is like walking in other people's shoes and we are all people after all, right? I started to notice that the entire class was broken up into small groups and I made a decision that I wasn't going to be a part of ANY small group. Instead, I socialized with ALL of the groups. I would make sure I recognized all individuals . Over time, another amazing thing happened. Some of the separate groups started to mingle with each other and by the end of the 1L year, we were socializing together. Overall, my opinion of Hofstra University definitely changed from August to May. Now, I am almost depressed that the 1L year is ending. So as far as overall impression, I have to say, on a scale of 1 to 10, I give Hofstra University an 11. Thanks Hofstra. I am definitely looking forward to another amazing year this August.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a highly academic school. The class sizes are small enough to actually know your classmates and professors. It is a great institution. There is never a moment that you are left to feel like you cannot turn to someone for assistance. I would recommend this school to everyone.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As someone who was a transfer student to Hofstra, I absolutely love it here. Don't get me wrong, it's not perfect; however, it's a lot better than some other schools. In my opinion there is no such thing as a perfect school; however, I do believe Hofstra is about as good as it gets. The academics here are excellent if you like hands on classes with 30 or less other students. The food in GREAT, compared to others (Most is made fresh as you order). The professors are all really invested in you and helping you succeed which sadly is sometimes a hard thing to find at Universities. All together, do I think Hofstra's perfect? Absolutely not. However, I truly believe that it is one of the best you will find. If anything please just come take a visit during the spring. The campus is absolutely gorgeous during that time.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I thought Hofstra was going to be an amazing school when I first applied, but all they really care about is money. I strongly believe that all of the money I pay for tuition goes into decoration for the campus. The computer systems in financial aid seem to be so outdated, for example there are many times when I have paid my tution and then later I find out that I have a hold on my account because of "outstanding balance". The students on campus also seem to be centered around money, they only choose to become friends with those who have a higher financial status. Professors are average, however most don't really seem to care about students. There have been many professors who never answer student emails or never have office hours. As for being a Biology major, it's pretty though. Biology on it's own is difficult but I find that the entire university is focused on it's business students and they don't even think twice about the biology students. In my opinion I see Hofstra as being an unequal university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think Hofstra is a very great school. It is very personalized care from every professor and I love that. The classes are a good size and the school has great students who are very prideful of Hofstra. The tuition is a little expensive however for all that the school offers I think it may be worth it with the help of some scholarships.
