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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall I am greatly enjoying my experience at Hofstra University. The professors are always open to communication, and class sizes are small enough to have in-depth discussions. there are a wide variety of classes to take, and the administration offers several resources to help students who may be struggling, whether it is with schoolwork, or something else. I would not choose to go to any other school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I honestly think that they are an absolute rip-off. The school only cares about itself and doesn't even stand behind its own students. The first thing that I don't like is that the school makes its students jump through hoops to pursue the careers that interest them. For instance, I wasn't even put on the right course-track to be eligible for the application cycle that I wanted for medical school. I was forced to take courses out of sequence and during the January and summer term that did not contribute to my future success in any way. Additionally, I received minimal guidance from the university and was left jumping through hoops to finish a health science degree which is useless without a higher education. Additionally, the school was so eager to delay my graduation by a semester, that they didn't take into consideration the long-term effects that it would have on my career. Even after graduating, my own advisement dean would not even bother to guide me in the right direction on how to apply for professional schools. She the school's advisement office won't even return my phone calls. Additionally, I received no help from the school when it came to looking for a job during my time out of school or advancing my career. At this point, I feel as if they have taken my money and just hung me out to dry. For anyone who is thinking about applying to this school, do not go to Hofstra unless you want to avoid taking the SAT/ACT, have an academic plan in advance or are going there for one of the dual degree/linkage programs that they now offer. For everyone else, I recommend going to a community college and transferring to a better university from there. You will save a tremendous amount of money, stress and be more successful in the long-run. Going to Hofstra for just a 4 year degree in some bullshit major is just simply not worth it and a waste of your time/money. Additionally, a word of caution for my fellow male colleagues, if a girl tries to accuse you of anything, even if she has virtually no evidence, the school will side with her and make your life miserable. Like I said, unless you have a solid plan of what you're going to do at Hofstra, DO NOT GO! This place is just simply not worth your money!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My mom and I had an opportunity to visit Hofstra University's campus during Open House and we brought one of my closest friends along for the tour. Although my friend and I share an interest in studying anthropology and forensic science, she also likes drama and theater while I like dance. As soon as we stepped onto campus I could feel something different in the air. My mom had taken us to a few Open Houses, but there was something unique about Hofstra. The experience made us feel like we were the only ones there that day and compared to the other schools we visited, this tour felt more personal. I had a chance to meet with Gabrielle Gulmi who has been communicating with me at least twice a week for the past two months and no matter how many questions we asked, everyone was willing to provide us with answers. Earlier in the day my mom took pictures of us with the cheerleaders and when we toured the residence halls, we found ourselves visiting two of the cheerleader’s rooms. I could have died and gone to heaven right in that moment! I told my mom this was a sign. Hostra University has everything I am looking for. From my visit to the Forensic Science laboratories to chats I had with various professors and students I have no doubt I will have the full support I need to complete my degree. While I cannot fairly rate all areas of this survey, I’m sure I would give five stars after I enroll as a freshman.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As I come to the conclusion of my 7th semester at Hofstra University, I have come to appreciate Hofstra's small class sizes and individualized attention. Every class I attend, professors not only know who I am but how I am doing in class and have a genuine interest in my life and well being. This unique attention has had a massive influence on my academic success. The sole critique I have is that Hofstra is not always the most diverese institution, so occasionally, it can be heard for multicultural organizations to get the same funding and recognition as other organizations on campus. Other than that, the food is pretty good, the dorms are clean, and the education is above par.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really like this school it was my first choice. I love all of the people and the campus is beautiful. Everybody is so helpful and accommodating. It is hard to find somebody here that doesn't want you to be successful. All of the professors are really engaging and just want you to do well and find something that you love doing. The only that I have to say is that there are not very many scholarship opportunities that are given by the actual school. And the school is also very expensive.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I think that Hofstra University is an amazing school! There are plenty of opportunities to get involved and there is almost always something going on. There is a lot of parties on the weekends, but there is no pressure to attend. Everyone is very supportive and caring towards one another.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall Hofstra has a very welcoming environment. As a student you look for the negatives but the school is well rounded with a lot of things to do from campus activities, to club fairs, and even sports events. The teachers are always available to talk about the lessons and to help with anything you need. Many professors will sit with you and go over tests if you are really struggling. The diversity of the campus is lacking, with a majority of the students coming from a higher class than the neighborhoods that hofstra is surrounded by. Despite that the school is great place to start your journey.
