After Hofstra University

Hofstra has a good student to professor ratio which makes it really easy to get to know your professors and ask questions in class. It also has a campus that is easy to get around and walking bridges across a busy street to get from one side of campus to the other. Although I've only lived in one residence hall I've seen many different dorm options and because Hempstead is generally pretty expensive the cost of living on campus isn't as bad as I expected it to be! All in all a pretty great school with lots of opportunities to join clubs, greek organizations, and academic societies.

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.

Coming to Hofstra was by far one of the best decisions I have ever made! The campus vibe is everything that I was looking for in a college, and I could not be happier here. I have made amazing friends that will last a lifetime, and the professors are some of the best that I've ever encountered. One of them is actually currently in the process of helping me get my first internship! They're all so interested & invested in your success, and that was something that I was really looking for in a college. You're not just another name or face, and that itself is extremely helpful when trying to figure out what you want to do after college. Not only that, but the fact that it's only 30 minutes from the city by train is AMAZING! I would strongly recommend Hofstra to anybody who is looking for a great education, while at the same time ready to have experiences & friends that will last a lifetime.
