Overall Experience: Some of the professors are easy to communicate in person, while others will speak with you through email only. Also some of the professors are accommodating and will work with you, should their be an unforeseen situation.

Overall Experience: So far, the university is not bad, I'm a commuter. I find the study facilities to be on target. When speaking to advisors I prefer to speak with head of department.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Hofstra has been unlike I expected, and this I mean in a good way. The school is diverse, accommodating, interesting and many other words I cannot think to describe it. It has been a great experience.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Hofstra always lets us know when something has happened and when we should be careful. They also have many seminars on safety and precautions.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love Hofstra. The group projects are one thing I really don't like since some kids do nothing while the other kids do all the work. They both get the same grade. It's not fair. Less group projects would be wonderful.

Health & Safety: More security would be nice.

Overall Experience: Hofstra graduates have a harder time finding employment than some other nearby schools

Greek Life: I don't go to school to socialize.

Athletics: I did not participate in the sports but they have great programs

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love Hofstra, the caliber of student could use improvement though.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel relatively safe while on campus. My campus is very lively with a diverse ratio of students. I have been made aware of any campus crimes and am grateful for that. We have a Public Safety organization that surrounds the school and makes sure students are safe especially during the night. I do not feel safe walking alone in the evening however, my school has emergency towers I can go to and I know I will be safe.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love living on campus! As an out of state student, I was careful to pick a school with safe and clean housing. This past year, I stayed in suite-style housing and enjoyed the people I lived with. Everyone was respectful and courteous. Next year, I will be living in a high rise building in which there are communal bathrooms and nice lounge amenities. I look forward to this experience because the high rise buildings are known to be clean and socially, I'll have to opportunity to meat a lot of different people. It was very easy to get a room, however the process goes by year and my class was the last to make their selection.

Greek Life: At Hofstra, there are 27 different Greek organizations offered. There is something for everyone, for instance business associated, major associated and culturally associated organizations. Greek life positively affects social life on campus because they sponsor a lot of events and activities. However, Greek life is a source of drama when it comes to induction. By non-Greeks, it is viewed as a very "clique or group" situation that isn't worth its drama. In regards to housing, there is none available on campus. Some Greek organizations decide to organize housing off campus and most is safely proximal to the school.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: I enjoy attending athletic events because I have friends that are on the diverse teams! Athletics is one of the major things that brings everyone together at school. We have a great pep band that gets everyone excited at the games and our teams have made many great accomplishments. For instance, our cheerleader and dance teams have competed nationally and have won the champion title for many consecutive years. Their performance has positively supported the school and increased a lot of the school spirit. Also, our basketball team competes at a high level within our division. Our athletics all participate in the CAA tournament. Many compete at a high level and win top rankings in their perspective tournaments.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have just completed my first year of college and I absolutely loved it. I met so many amazing people and had many positive experiences. I primarily chose Hofstra because of the Physician Assistance Program, however beyond that I am so happy I chose this school. The professors are very dedicated and the overall student life is great.

2 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Nothing terrible has happened on Hofstra's campus, but the academic side is basically in the middle of a not-great neighborhood with literally no gates or fences to keep out non-students. You also have to cross small roads to get to certain classes where people (students) will sometimes ignore their stop signs and speed past.

I have never felt unsafe on campus, but I believe Hofstra desperately needs to do something about how easy it is to access our campus.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

How any particular student feels about the school depends on a number of things— classes, people, money, etc.—but most people like it here, minus the high tuition. Hofstra's academic credibility has definitely gone up in recent years. Whenever Hofstra students tell people where they go to school, people usually say, "I've heard that's a really good school." When this happens, students feel some "Hofstra Pride." Even though Hofstra doesn't have a football team anymore, they've still got some pretty good sports for people who are interested in them. Hofstra also has great academic programs and good professors. Overall,  Hofstra students really do have a lot of good things going for them.

To make the best of your time here, try to get involved in different clubs and activities. Go to a midnight movie, play pool down in the game room, and utilize the newly-renovated Recreation Center. There is a lot more to do here than most people realize, and once you know everything Hofstra has to offer, it makes the experience that much better.
