What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's overall pretty good. Students are rarely hungry and the dorms are comfortable. Public safety is everywhere so I always feel safe. Most teachers are helpful and can be reached for extra help during office hours. People are rather friendly and there are tons of extra curricular activities to partake in.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My experience at Hofstra University has been life-changing. As a freshman student, I was accepted into the Direct-Entry PA Program. This program has given me the ability to further develop and communicate exactly what I'd like to do with my future. Hofstra provides students with diverse experiences and learning opportunities. Its proximity to New York City, gives students the opportunity to experience the real world in classes and in internships. There are opportunities for everyone and they seem to be endless!

It'll Cost Ya!

I cannot tell a lie: I am without a doubt a proud member of the Hofstra Pride. Hofstra University truly is an amazing school containing an endless stream of opportunities. The campus itself is gorgeous and pretty big for a private university, but still not so big that it's overwhelming. From the very first time I stepped onto the campus I got a "homey" feeling, and that has stuck around throughout the years I've been there. The community on campus is great as well, we have so many clubs that there is literally something for everyone. Sure, Hofstra is not at all located in a college town, in fact, it still baffles me that such a nice university located in such less than ideal town - that's putting it lightly. However, the atmosphere of the campus itself, the next city over (Garden City), and NYC being a 45-minute train ride away balances every thing out pretty nicely. Hofstra is a great place academics wise too. Being a Hofstra student opens so many doors to astounding opportunities, not only while you're a student but especially once you've graduated. The resources are definitely there, you just have to take advantage of them. Also, I've come across some amazingly helpful and support professors and faculty during my time there. My ONE complaint about Hof - now that they've gotten rid of Lackmann as our dining provider- is hinted at in my review title: IT'LL COST YA. Hofstra is very expensive in every way possible, from the tuition to the housing to on campus dining to the bookstore and more. I seriously die a little inside every time I think about how much student debt I'm in, and I'm still not done yet. It definitely doesn't help that our financial aid office is not the easiest to deal with, which is super frustrating because a lot of students spend A LOT of time having to deal with them. In fact, a lot of the bigger, main administrative offices could use some improvement. A lot of the time I see where my money is going and I'm satisfied for the most part, there have been issues that have popped up and I find myself questioning,"HOW IS THIS AN ISSUE WITH ALL THE MONEY WE'RE ALL PAYING YOU?!" So all in all, Hofstra: an absolutely amazing school to attend, but at a price. Literally.

Hofstra is my HOME

This is my third year attending Hofstra University. I have found it to be a very welcoming community where I have been able to explore opportunities and thrive as a student and as an individual. I would encourage anyone who likes small class sizes and large university advantages to visit our campus. Fun fact over 90% of students graduate with jobs or admission to graduate programs after four years of attending. (mic drop)

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Hofstra University is a great school that offers you opportunities to figure out what you want to be in life. It has a great environment where one can feel safe and the people who attend the school have great attitudes and are always nice to each other. The university provides great food thats enjoyable to all and the housing provides great space for personal items and studying. The location of the school is convenient near the mall, close to many food places and a hospital. I believe that going to this school is a great decision to go to because of all it has to offer and the great atmosphere they provide.

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

Don't treat college like high school because you'll regret not putting full effort into the work you submit to your professors.

What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?

The most common stereotypes is the way the fraternity boys are seen and the stoners. They see those types of people as underachievers when in reality they are actually really great students.
