Go To basketball games, go to the local pubs, and hang out on campus. Basketball games are fun because you are with your peers and the game gets pretty exciting. Also, after a hard day at school, it's nice to meet up with everyone and relax at the local pubs.

  1. Attend the yearly events that bring the Hofstra community together (whether be a current student, faculty, or alum) such as the Annual Fall Festival, Dutch Festival, athletic events, concerts, club performances, etc. 2. Explore the campus and its surroundings through the Hofstra shuttle, which brings students for example to the nearest shopping centers, as well as the LIRR stations of Hempstead and Mineloa which can be taken to explore New York City. 3. Go to the Play Room, where a vast number of games can be played with friends such as ping pong and videogames.

Students go to basketball games, as those are free for students and our basketball team is usually pretty good, students attend fairs, concerts and other events on campus, usually held on the weekends, as those are also free and a good way to meet new people and spend time with old friends, and students also go to parties for fun.

"Midnight Movies" takes place on the weekend, and plays all types of movies to be watched! 2) Hofstra hosts a club fair for their students to explore, and learn. 3) We all know finals week can be stressful, with that said, Hofstra offers a "Midnight Breakfast" for their students. It’s free, takes place on campus and gives you an excuse to take a break from studying.

The top three things students here at Hofstra do for fun is first we go to the mall. The Roosevelt Field Mall is one of the largest shopping malls in America and Hofstra students love to go there. Second we like to go to New York City. Being very close to the city gives Hofstra students to explore whenever they want and we have fun doing so. Third we like to hang out with our friends and be silly all day on campus. We will take a walk or play a pick up game on our beautiful campus and just hang out with friends.

  1. There are a lot of clubs on campus that meet at all times of the day; like Yoga Club, Adopt a Dream, Greek Life and Hillel. There are a lot of ways to get involved on campus to make awesome memories.
  2. People can go to go to the game room to play some pool with friends.
  3. Working out can be a challenge, but it can also be fun! I love going to the gym with a friend to do some yoga or cardio. I can even bring a friend outside of Hofstra as a guest!

Hofstra University is located on Long Island and is about half an hour away from Manhattan. Students often take a day to go and explore the city. Manhattan has an unlimited source of entertainment.

Hofstra students have access to a gym as part of their tuition. The gym provides everything you could want, even special classes. The gym is always busy from open to close, and many students love the available facilities.

My personal favorite thing to do is to go to the top floor of the library (10th) near closing with my girlfriend. There is a side room where you can look out at the skyline of New York City. Just being able to sit there with someone you care about and be alone with them beats anything else.

1.) As a Freshmen you can attend an END trip which allows you to go to an event in the city or around that area. 2.) Hofstra USA is a fun get away place where you can eat, hang out with friends, play games, and attend events/parties. 3.) Just a nice walk around campus can be fun since we are a national arboretum so it is always a pleasant stroll.
