I regret the day I came in forEducation
I regret the day I came in for orientation to Hofstra's Graduate School of Education. I have never had gainful employment as a teacher, just as a substitute. Luckily my husband has a decent job because I cannot make a living with my worthless Hofstra education degree. Please stay away. I wish I could at least say I learned something at Hofstra, even though it didn't lead to a job. The classes were for the most part worthless. I had horrible mentor teachers for my student teaching assignment. They had no interest whatsoever in mentoring. I try not to even think about the time and money I wasted or I get almost suicidal. I hope I can help at least one person from wasting precious years of their lives. Unless you know someone, you will have an extremely hard time finding a decent teaching job on Long Island.

Question
The best thing about hofstra is that itBrightAgriculture/Horticulture
The best thing about hofstra is that it has a homey feeling to it, the campus is very nice, the teachers and faculty are all very well educated in their fields. You can learn a lot better in a small classroom setting which hofstra can provide with its student to faculty ratio, and that is how you can get acquainted with the teachers at the school, who usually have connections on the outside walls of hofstra and could help you for your future when looking for jobs in the related field anyone is interested in. I feel there is a lot of school pride here especially among the freshman. i spend most of my time in bits and bytes which is a nice food building. I will always remember the good times I had when i was dorming on campus.

Question
Hofstra is a very large school which isBright
Hofstra is a very large school which is one of the reasons I went there. The extensive class offerings drew me in. Most people are very willing to help and despite the class being big its easier inside of a major to find somebody to concentrate on you. I commute there but I go to the mall a lot and to Old Country Road to shop. its awesome. Its near queens and the city. When I tell people I am at hofstra most seems happy or impressed. Some people do not hold hofstra to a high esteem but i do not understand why. The school is great for learning. I love the campus, i find it easy to get around although I have gotten lost once or twice. Adminstration is very nice - people have always helped me and i'm not afraid to ask.
