Hofstra University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (6)
Hofstra University is a diverse school located in Hempstead NY. It's campus is beautiful and the location is great for both commuters and those who want to dorm.
I thoroughly enjoyed my college experience. I came into college with a lot of credits from high school and I enrolled in the college's honor program. This enabled me to take a lot of classes outside my major, so I got a very well rounded education.
Hofstra is good school with small class sizes the vast majority of the time. The campus is beautiful (it is an aboritum with statues throughout). The students are very helpful and anyone would be happy to tell you about teachers and classes they've had. There is a Greek presents on campus but it is a small fraction of campus life. Intramural sports draw almost as large a crowd as the collegiate teams, which may speak more to the schools disinterest in sports more than anything else.
Hofstra is a good school that embraces the fact that they are so close to NYC. While the majority of your time will be spent on campus, some classes, and most departments schedule trips into the city to broaden student experiences.
Although i enjoyed learning and taking the Political Science Major at Hofstra, i found that when i went out in the world it did nothing to help me get a job or help me to get a focus on what career path i would end up pursuing. I must say however that i did intend to study law further after graduating but that never happened and as a result in retrospect it might have been more productive studying a different major.
The forensic linguistics master's degree at Hofstra University is the only one of it's kind in the United States which makes it extraordinarily unique and highly specialized. The professors who run the program and teach many courses are some of the most highly trained and most educated instructors I have ever had. Because of their outside work, they have access to real data that creates a more hands on and interactive classroom for the students. Even the students in the program are all extremely intelligent and offer so much to the program as a whole. It is an incredible environment that serves as such a strong basis for research and further studies and every student is highly encouraged and extremely motivated. It is a phenomenal program and I am so happy to be a part of it!!
