What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

College is a great experience. It's fun and allows you to really become an independant person. It is easy however to lose sight of the most important part of college, which is your education. Being able to balance the work with your social life is critical. A student must be able to discipline themselves enough to remove factors that will cause them to fall behind in school, whether it be drugs, alcohol, or even people who are a bad influence.

Describe the students at your school.

They are all very nice and tend to interact with eachother right away, even if no one has met before.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Make sure you research the school. Make sure you visit the school. I can understand not visiting before you are accepted but difnitely do so once you are. It is very common for someone to ignore this, even when everyone is telling you to heavily research the school you are interested in, but the work will pay off when you realize how happy you are wherever you end up.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Hofstra University is a college made up of Long Island kids and Jersey kids, In essence you have a bunch of spolied rich idiot assholes running around campus pissing off all those not from that area; While the campus is well kept, most of the people on it are not and need to be avoided.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Anyone not from Long Island or New Jersey, anyone who is not an asshole, and those who want to be engineers.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Make sure that a car is not needed on campus if you are not planning on bringing one. Without a car in a suburban enviornment you will be totally bored in your free time and unable to do much. I suggest visiting the campus at least twice once on a weekday and once on a weekend so you can see how active the campus is on the weekend. Also make sure that you will fit in with the student population and that campus life is not geared to those who live in the area where the college is.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The best advice that I can give to students about finding the right college is that they don't have to attend a prestigious college or an ivy league college in order to have a great and amazing college experience. Many times at ivy league and well-known colleges students don't have a great experience at all but rather a difficult and stressful one. When chosing the right college, a student should pay attention to things such a tuition costs, location, faculty, the student population, educational programs, and the overall environment of the campus. Can you see yourself interacting with faculty members? Can you see yourself interacting with the student body in positive ways? Do you feel that you will be able to grow and learn while being on campus? My school was not my first choice at all because hardly anyone thought it was a prestigious university. However, after visiting the campus, it seemed like a very calm and beautiful place to learn and study. This did not however mean that everyone would find it the same way. The point is, for me, it turned out to be the best place, and that is the most important thing.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person who is interested in learning new things about a much larger world should attend Hofstra. Hardworking and persistent students should attend Hofstra. I think it is a great place if you're looking for a great place to learn and explore new things.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The tuition is rather expensive, and several friends have to leave without finishing their education at Hofstra. The food on campus is also not worth the price.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I knew how important it was to have a job to keep up with social events, as well as the cost of food on campus.

What's unique about your campus?

The atmosphere is very welcoming. The campus looks beautiful all year long.

They are all either Italian or Jewish. Many are only at Hofstra because college is just something everyone does after high school.

What's unique about your campus?

Its proximity to NYC

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

It is very hard to select the best college for you because it is a decision that largely impacts the future you. Its easy to know whats best for us presently but hard to try and place yourself in the long term. For those that are not positive of what direction they want their life to go, I suggust a larger school with a good co-op program. These types of schools allow new students to discover who they want their future selves to be, while still graduating on time. I attend a small university and feel trapped, and at twenty years old thats wrong.
