What is your overall opinion of this school?

Hofstra has provided me with many opportunities inside and outside the classroom. The beautiful campus makes you feel part of a family like community has been great for making great friends, and allowing me to be successful. Everyone here wants you to succeed, and the professors make themselves readily available in order for you to do that. The proximity to New York City allows for students to get amazing internship opportunities throughout the year, and also allow students to enjoy the culture and fun of the city as well. This university has so many opportunities from a broad range of classes, clubs, and experiences that everyone will be able to find their place here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Choosing Hofstra University was definitely one of the greatest decisions I've ever made. Coming from a small suburban town, proximity to NYC was something that I was definitely looking for in a school, and being a 35-minute train ride from the city is something that I've definitely been taking advantage of. In addition, Hofstra's School of Communication is ranked #2 by LinkedIn in terms of students who get jobs immediately after college. Internships are required for all communication students, so it was amazing knowing that I would be going into the field with prior experience. Not only that, but there are only approximately 7,500 undergraduate students, with an average class size of about 21 students, so students are able to have professional relationships with their professors. Overall, I could not imagine being anywhere but Hofstra. The opportunities that it has provided me are more than I could have every imagined, and I strongly encourage all high school students to keep Hofstra in mind during their college search! :)

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe that Hofstra has provided me with an incredible education and given me multiple opportunities to grow as a person. Whether it be in my major or outside of my major, I have been able to pursue my multitude of interests such as a capella, community service, and intramural sports. We have over 200 clubs to get involved with, so it is easy to find your place. I really love and appreciate the small class sizes because it allows me to get to know my professors and the other people in my class more. I currently live off-campus because it is cheaper and there is more freedom, but I did enjoy the community and safety of living on campus. Overall, Hofstra is a great school as long as you take advantage of all the resources and opportunities presented to you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Hofstra is a phenomenal school, that is always striving to grow and change for its students. The campus is beautiful and safe and the student population is diverse. Great place to go for undergrad and grad schools. The professors are incredibly kind and will always make the time for you when it comes to needing help in a class whether it's online or not.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a decent school, not great, and the academics can be a walk in the park if you put a bit of time in. Party culture and fraternal organization are around – including some shadier "off-campus" options – and can sometimes be a very negative experience (a google search of Hofstra's Sigma Pi chapter will enlighten you). The GS/Geography department and Geology/Environment/Sustainability department are very welcoming and helpful to students that reach out. On-campus resources – including security, therapy, and extracurriculars – are very strong and often overlooked despite being largely positive.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am a grad student at Hofstra, and I also went there for undergrad. I absolutely loved my undergrad experience, and so far I'm loving my grad experience, too. Everyone from the faculty, to the administration, to the staff is so nice and helpful. There are also plenty of activities to take part in. I'm a commuter so that was definitely a big positive. And I can't say enough good things about the Lawrence Herbert School of Communication. I've learned so much about the comm business through engaging classes, WRHU, and other amazing opportunities the school provided. I highly recommend Hofstra University for anyone.
