What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Hofstra! There are obviously some imperfections, but I love my school for what it is. The professors care about every student and want everyone to do well in their class. The facilities are very nice for students that take advantage of them. I think it is a school to look at if New York is your dream. It's close to the city, but not too close the city becomes a distraction.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As cheesy as it sounds, Hofstra really feels like home. It's such an open community that it'd be impossible not to find a club, a group, or even a place that feels like you belong in. The professors are always willing to help you and are flexible on finding time to work with you from what I've experienced. Also, honestly the food is great. There's a ton of options for any type of diet. The surrounding area is fairly easy to get around and there's always something to do. With tons of clubs, programs, and activities, I'm never sitting around bored. I love being at Hofstra and it really just feels like it's an easy place to call home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think it's a good university, however there are goods and bads. The professors seems to be alright, there are some who seem to be a little stuck up and rude. Faculty will sometimes try and give you information that does not affect you. They will try to sugar-coat many things especially the financial advisors. This is probably a way for the school to make more money. Overall I think you just need to be fully prepared when you walk in because Hofstra is a bit tricky.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I genuinely love attending Hofstra University. It has something for everyone, and stresses intellectual opportunities and conversation. Hofstra, I believe, is a hub for students and intellectuals who want that conversation, and genuinely want to make an impact, not just pass their classes. It's an extremely diverse campus, which is an amazing experience. Overall, I think Hofstra deserves a to be a well-known name across the Northeast at least, and an option that more people consider.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall I really like Hofstra. It's a cool environment and I've met some really great people there. The food is great too and I like my professors. The parties could be better though. They need a better DJ. The frats only play one type of music but I wish they would play more of a variety.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, Hofstra has changed a lot in the years I have been here. If you are looking to join Greek Life absolutely do not come here. The party scene was solid at a point because we had four bars that served 18 year olds. Crazy right? Yeah, obviously all of those are shut down now. Additionally, Hofstra is trying to phase out Greek Life as a way to become more prestigious somehow because they value their reputation and ability to make as much money as possible more than students' ability to have fun. Depending on what major you have, this school can be great or terrible. The Communications and Business departments are excellent but most of the other programs are average if not sub-par. That said, as a Journalism major I have enjoyed my classes thoroughly. I have had incredibly skilled professionals guide me as my professors and help shape me from a confused freshman to a senior with a salary paying writing job. If you aren't super concerned with the part scene and are a communications or business major, this is a great school to attend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I know this may sound cliche, but after one year at Hofstra University, I can sincerely say it has been the best year of my life. Since it is a Liberal Arts school, I have been able to get involved with some many different things, from the On-Campus Radio Station to even an acapella group! I have grown so much as an individual after one year and I can't wait to see who I will be at the end of my four years. Hofstra is my home and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Hofsta University. Everyone on campus, both faculty and students, are so welcoming and friendly; you can find a friend anywhere you go. There is so much to do both on and off campus as well because of all the sports, clubs, dining halls, and nearby shopping centers, not to mention we are 45 min from NYC! The Hofstra community is so great and I always feel included, it really is my second home!
