Hofstra University Reviews
Review Hofstra University
My experience at Hofstra University was great! I will be an incoming freshman this fall and while I was at orientation I noticed a lot of awesome things. First off, the professors and faculty members at Hofstra are there to make sure you're at your best 24/7. There's so many places to go to receive help, it's very reassuring especially when you're having a bad day. Next, the campus and the dorms are nice. The campus is very large which means a lot of walking, but it's not that bad because there's such beautiful architecture and landscaping to look at. The dorms are small and neat, but there's air conditioning which is a major plus. I got to sit through a real college class, which at Hofstra are relatively small. The food at Hofstra has a pretty good selection, but nothing crazy. There are Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, Subways, Sbarros, and many other places to grab a bite to eat. Overall, Hofstra has a lot to offer and I couldn't be more excited to start my 4-year journey there!
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.
Hofstra University is, undoubtedly, one of the best schools in the nation. Students did not like dining on campus, so Hofstra upgraded their dining to replace all 40 eateries on campus. Students wanted better dorms, so they completely renovated all of the towers. The professors all have the highest degrees in their fields. They are expanding the school of business. There is an undergraduate business school, that has many programs modeled after Wharton School of Business. Students get internships at J.P Morgan, Morgan Stanley, Ernst and Young, and more. There are over 9 schools and 200 programs at Hofstra. A 240 acre campus that is recognized as an arboretum , with such a close proximity to the most well-known city in the world, cannot have a better location. It's borderline is Hempstead and East Garden City; Garden City is an incredible place for internships and Hempstead is where much of the student body does community service. It is currently developing into a top-tier school.
