First, they should be serious about their college career. I have friends who searched for the perfect "party " school. I wanted to work towards my future and wanted to be serious at college.

First and foremost, the fact that New York City is close enough would mean an endless amount of opportunities can be in reach for many students. Internships, or just places of interests can be found in NYC and it is easily accessible through the Hofstra shuttle and the LIRR. Secondly, its relatively small class sizes make it easier for the student to have a more of a hands on experience and to build academic student-professor relationships. Last but not least, its campus is simply beautiful, spacious, and safe.

1) For the small class sizes that make it easy to have a hands on experience and allow for students to get to know their professors. 2) There are hundreds of clubs around campus that allow for students to easily become involved on campus. There are clubs for everyone's interests and if a student wants to start a club of their own, they are able to do so. Clubs allow for students to get to know their peers and broaden their scope. 3) Hofstra is conveniently a forty-five minute train ride from New York City which gives students the chance to take field trips there for classes and to explore the city on their own with friends. The location makes it convenient for internship opportunities as well.

They shouldn't. If I could go back and not go to Hofstra I would. They cut my scholarship and won't give me any additional money even though I got a 3.8 and then a 4.0 GPA and I can't get any more loans because of how many I have already taken out to pay for the first three years.

1- great classes, the professors are so passionate about their subject that it is nearly impossible to get swept up into the reading as much as they do, making the class more enjoyable and much easier. 2- amazing people, no one is judgmental and everyone is so friendly and encourages individuality over "fitting in" to a clique. 3- location, HU is in perfect proximity to the big city, but far enough that it doesn't spoil the magic of NYC and doesn't distract you from your studies.

Someone should attend Hofstra University if they want easy access to New York City, but in a comfortable, suburban environment. They should also apply if they want a college where everyone cares about the campus wildlife. Also if they enjoy a small class environment with professors that care about the student's well being.

First, Hofstra's program will help broaden my horizon by providing me with an extraordinary faculty. All of Hofstra's faculty are extermly skilled and knowledgeable in their specific field.
Second, Hofstra allows me to choose the location of my internship. Many schools make that decision for their students and being given that choice will provide me with a better understanding of what fits my educational and career needs, goals, and objectives. Third, and perhaps most importantly, offering a small and intimate classroom setting in which I thrive. I feel that smaller classes often allow for better learning environments, and therefore, additional opportunities. The close, intimate setting gives students an advantage because students will be exposed to more of a personalized teaching approach compared to being taught in a lecture type classroom.

The top three reasons someone should attend Hofstra are one the opportunities presented here are out of this world. There are so many great opportunities now and for the future especially since we are so close to New York City. Second the campus is amazing. It is not to small but not to large.

You will always find someone or a group of people who are willing to have a talk with you and learn about you. You just have to be spontaneous and start a conversation with someone the people here are so friendly.

First, Hofstra is close to New York City, and offers transportation to the train station, making city day trips easy and convenient for students. My friends and I get to explore New York City any time we want, and you can too if you come to Hofstra! Secondly, Hofstra has the feel of a big campus, yet in the classroom teachers will really get to know you personally. If you want a big campus feel, but small classroom setting, Hofstra would be perfect for you. Finally, the third reason I believe someone should attend Hofstra University is because every student that attends Hofstra is willing to make new friends and branch out! The campus atmosphere is friendly and inviting, therefore leaving no one left out!

There was a recent student outcry over dissatisfied services related to dining. The faculty has since replaced the food service program at the school with a more healthy (Award winning) provider. This school listens to their students.

We have hosted two presidential debates, and students can get involved.

The dorm rooms are almost like hotel rooms. The builds go 13 floors up, and have awesome views.
