If you are attendingAverage
If you are attending Hofstra for the first time get out. All they care about is failing their students, which leads to debt .... loans and more loans if you can get into a cuny two year school then find a four year college that is less for your pocket and professors that enjoy your values and views

Question
Hofstra has given me so many opportunities toBrightJournalism
Hofstra has given me so many opportunities to prepare myself for the next step after college. I came to Hofstra after being convinced it would be a good fit for me from my parents, friends, and teachers, so once I got accepted, I visited (which is usually the opposite of what people do). Nevertheless, from just one visit I fell in love with the campus and how supported I would feel being away from home. Going into my senior year, I already feel like I'm ready to conquer the world. In my department especially, the faculty's experience is incredible. Sometimes it takes prying to truly know everything they've done, but I've learned from them first hand how to get started in an industry like the one I'm going into. The classes for me are fundamental: learning the basics and how to take it above and beyond. The extracurriculars (and again, this is from my experience, so in the school of communication), really put students over the edge. Through the radio station, I've been able to actually do what I want to do in the real world for a professional hockey team, work with real media professionals, and even got an internship through that experience and by just knowing certain alumni. The tv network gave me a chance to put together reels for applying to jobs and internships in the future. But what I like about Hofstra goes beyond the school of comm. I've met some of my best friends here, that make it sad to travel back home for breaks. I feel like I have my own life up here in New York now, and Hofstra has definitely facilitated that. I see other reviews here of people complaining how about course load and other things but in my opinion, this school is what you put into it. You have to realize college is a different beast, and that maybe problems at Hofstra actually happen all of the country (shocker!). One's student super negative experience is not what I see on a day to day basis here on campus. Now I won't lie: the cost. In my opinion, you should go to a school that not only appeals to your academic interests, but to what you can afford too. It can be expensive based on the scholarship you receive, the outside scholarships you get, FAFSA, etc. But again, I don't regret going to this school for a second, and I feel as if everything I've done has been worth what I pay per semester.

Hofstra is an amazingQuite BrightCommunications
Hofstra is an amazing school! Upon finishing my sophomore year I already had internship experience and many professionals in my personal network. The professors are always wiling to make time for students outside of class!
