Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2016

Hofstra University changed my life. I grew up in a poor socio-economic background in Queens, NY. Hofstra offered me a full scholarship through the NOAH program. I realized in order to change my life I first had to change the people around me. I met scholars, dreamers, and professors who saw the potential in humanity. I gained clinical knowledge in Paychology, research and medicine. Because of Hofstra University, I have been admitted to PA school at Charles Drew University and am blessed to have finally made it out of my neighborhood. I will continue to help lead other students to greatness as Hofstra has led me!

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2017

Coming to Hofstra was by far one of the best decisions I have ever made! The campus vibe is everything that I was looking for in a college, and I could not be happier here. I have made amazing friends that will last a lifetime, and the professors are some of the best that I've ever encountered. One of them is actually currently in the process of helping me get my first internship! They're all so interested & invested in your success, and that was something that I was really looking for in a college. You're not just another name or face, and that itself is extremely helpful when trying to figure out what you want to do after college. Not only that, but the fact that it's only 30 minutes from the city by train is AMAZING! I would strongly recommend Hofstra to anybody who is looking for a great education, while at the same time ready to have experiences & friends that will last a lifetime.

Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2014

Studying at Hofstra was definitely a great decision for me and my career. I came into undergrad undecided in what science I wanted to study, but very sure about wanting to pursue medicine after graduating. The chemistry curriculum provided the possibility to create a very individualized yet challenging curriculum. Additionally, I had the privilege of presenting at two national American Chemical Society conferences with my expenses taken care of by the Honors College. As a liberal arts college, there is a seemingly endless amount of diversity in courses and extracurricular activities that you can take to round you out as a student and a person. The tuition is a little pricey, but there are many scholarships provided by the school if you demonstrate your drive to learn through academic excellence.

Degree: Psychology, Other
Graduation Year: 2016

Hofstra University is a prestigious institution. The university as a whole understands the importance of education. Specifically, Hofstra emphasizes that the function of education is to train our minds to think intensively and to think critically. Moreover, the reason behind Hofstra's success lies within the small class sizes. Admittedly, class size depends on the major the student decides to pick up; however, I always had about 15-20 students in my courses at any one time. Clearly, this promotes further attention per student. Similarly, Hofstra has fantastic professors who are not fantastic because they are easy. The professors truly challenge their students, and force them to gain the highest level of education through rigorous studies and adaptation to course material overall. Personally, I attribute my success to Hofstra University. I was accepted into the Charles Drew PA Program in California and I thank Hofstra for all of the preparation. -A.R. Jr.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2013

Hofstra provided me with a great education; it definitely prepared me for my future. It did however, have a veery poor support system. There were favorite students that were taken care of, others had to find their own way. I definitely learned how to fight for myself constantly and how to be self-sufficient because of the lack of assistance, but it has helped me with a further degree. Very, very expensive with a terrible financial aid office. Overall, I would recommend for the education, but get ready to pay a lot, and have little assistance.

Degree: Film Production
Graduation Year: 2013

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.

Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2012

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.

Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2012

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.

Degree: Political Science and Government, General
Graduation Year: 1980

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.
