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.

That's something no one can avoid looking at. But what makes the university worthwhile is all the experiences that I have been offered personally and professionally. The school really has prepared me for going into the professional world and I would recommend Hofstra for many people. Its not a school for students to just wake up, go to class, go home, and repeat. But for people who want to be future leaders and really enhance themselves, this is a great place. The community (students and administration) are good people, not there to push you along in the masses or compete with you in the classroom. You do feel like your own individual self, not just one in 100 especially because the class sizes are really small. Tue, 25 Jul 2017 11:57:26 GMT http://www.studentsreview.com/NY/HU_comments.html
