Discover You @Hofstra

It's time to reach for your dreams

It's time to be you

You’re ready.

You’ve studied and worked hard to get to this moment … beginning your journey through college. And Hofstra is ready for you, with faculty who will inspire and engage you in your major or in other interests. They will be your mentors in small classes and will get to know you as students and people. Here, you’ll find friendships that will last a lifetime, challenges that will inspire you, community service and internship opportunities that will help you make the world a better place.

Picture yourself

in a seminar in an ivy-covered academic building. You are not seated at the back of a 200-person lecture hall feverishly taking notes from an enormous white board. Instead you are seated in a classroom with 20 fellow students, engaged in an interactive discussion led by your professor, who might be a Guggenheim Fellow or Fulbright scholar, a prize-winning scientist or CEO, or even an Emmy Award winner.

What’s pride?

At Hofstra, pride is a way of life. Like a family of lions, who are strong and independent individuals but even more powerful together, our students, staff, faculty, administrators and alumni all contribute to make our campus a great place to live, work and play. At Hofstra, you can belong to many prides. Your pride might be an athletic team, a student club, a sorority or fraternity, your roommates, your residence hall community, a study group — anyone you connect with. It won’t take long for you to make friends and settle into your new home at Hofstra.

At Hofstra

you will have endless opportunities for real-life, hands-on learning.

Your professors will not only teach you concepts and theories, but they will also teach you how to apply what you are learning so you can step out of the classroom and make a positive impact on the world around you. You will become part of a close-knit community that offers a global reach. You will experience cultures through your peers who come from 47 states and 81 countries. So when the time comes for those all-important internship experiences, you’ll have the knowledge you need; mentors in the scholars and professionals who teach you; exposure to diverse cultures and people, and experience through clubs, campus organizing, community service, and externship and career-prep initiatives. Intern in the summer, or during the school year — or even both. Many Hofstra students do multiple internships – because they can and because they are ready. You can change the world. You have everything you need.
