Date: Dec 28 2006
Major: History/Histories (art history/etc.) (This Major's Salary over time)
THIS IS LONG BUT VERY HELPFUL, I HOPE..PLEASE READ! I am a second semester sophomore, I came to Hofstra because I got a full scholarship, and I'm transferring out…

PROS: 1)The food is not amazing, but there is a lot of variety (kosher, organic) and there are several places to eat. There is even "Dutch Treats" which is a junk food haven that is open 24 hours/day. 2)Relaxed dorms: you can stay here all of winter break, there are no opposite sex rules, the RA's are pretty lenient about drinking 3)Faculty:I've found that most of my professors are very nice and accommodating 4)Garden city/Westbury are a 5-10 minute car ride away so you can go to restaurants and the Roosevelt field mall(this sounds like a good point to high school seniors but once you get to college you realize that going out to eat and shopping are too expensive for a small budget) 5) It's easy to double major and it's also easy to acquire minors

THE MANY CONS: 1)SOCIAL LIFE: Hempstead is a rundown, dangerous barrio and you're right smack in the middle! There used to be four bars, however three of them were shut down. The only remaining bar—the "Dizzy Lizard"—is VERY SMALL, dirty and unsanitary(the toilets often don't work, the floor is covered in sludge and vomit..yum!). People who don't go to the bar drink in the rooms every weekend (believe me that gets old after a semester). Otherwise, that's all for social life. Parties are very rare and they are off campus. You have to walk to them, which is dangerous, and they're usually broken up by 11 or 12 by the cops. NOBODY GOES TO THE CITY…so don't be fooled by the brochures that say "Manhattan is so close-by!"…It's a 35 minute train ride away, and no one is willing to take it. This is probably due to the fact that everyone is extremely uncultured and lazy, which brings me to my second point: 2)STUDENT BODY: All around lazy and unintelligent. For example, a person got kicked out of my philosophy class for having a "cheat sheet" on his lap, this was the same class where a student thought Galileo was an ancient Greek and where another student had to ask the professor what "moral" meant. I've had other classes where students actually CURSED at the teachers when they did poorly on the test. I've had many classes in which students literally revolted after not getting review sheets/extra credit. A lot of students cheat or just don't do the work all together. You can get by doing minimal work or just copying someone else's. All the majority of students are really into doing is getting completely wasted in their room or at Dizzys (Btw…I drink, so don't think this comment is coming from a Quaker or something). The "rumors" you've heard about the coach bags, stuck up rich long island kids (IM FROM LONG ISLAND..HOFSTRA ACTUALLY MADE ME HATE MY OWN HOMELAND), fake tans, guidos, blow outs, chain-smokers, etc…well, it's all true. Yes, there are other types of people…and those other types of people either find a very small niche and stay there or they transfer out! 3)ACTIVITIES: From my experience, the activities are not hard to get into..but it’s hard to WANT to be a part of them! A small percentage of the student body is involved in activities, and most of them do several clubs…this creates a sort of “Clique” of activities people. It’s hard to assimilate into the activities crowd. The school is also predominantly Jewish and many of the field trips and fund-raisers are sponsored by “Hillel” which is a Jewish club. They are cliquey within themselves and so it’s difficult to get involved. The Greeks live off campus and are comprised of a)kids who didn’t fit in during high school and are desperately trying to make up for it OR b)kids who DID fit into high school and are yearning for that same attention…overall they are nonexistent unless you go to the bar on Tuesday night in which case they will be on top of each other dancing to Reggaeton and enjoying their cocaine high 4) STUDY ABROAD ..HAH!: You can only do a Hofstra Study Abroad program if you go during Winter or Summer session, there is no semester program…the winter/summer trips cost from 5,000 to 7,000 extra bucks. If you want to travel this is not the place for you! 4)QUALITY OF EDUCATION: Okay, so obviously this is the most important part. Many of the classes are not challenging at all. However, I have taken a few that do challenge and engage me. It depends on what professors and classes you take, obviously. However, I have never been in a class..literally NOT ONCE…where the students have been engaged, where there are intelligent conversations, where I get a sense that people care! It’s bizarre! A lot of Professors assign busy work or work that is just too easy or not conducive to the topics at hand. I can name 4 classes I took that I learned a wealth of information in…and three of those classes were taught BY THE SAME PROFESSOR. At the end of the day, I guess I just don’t feel like I’m learning as much as I could and I feel sort of unfulfilled academically. The school also doesn’t have a great reputation, and while they are trying to up their reputation by “raising the bar” it’s still not there yet! By the time you graduate, Hofstra is not going to be the next NYU or Columbia so please don’t bank on that…it is what it is in the here and now…and that is a mediocre school at best. So this was my very long winded comment and I know that most people won’t read it…but I hope that I at least deterred one intelligent, sophisticated individual from coming to Hofstra.

responseThanks alot for you comment! Yea Hofstra is a pretty terrible school overall and Murphy's Law seems to run rampant there, but if you do find that niche of nice people and stick with them, like at Any college, then you're bound to have fun
responseThis is the funniest review of any school I've ever read.
responseOh and I completely agree about the "niche" people. You can't get involved with them because they only want to spend time alone! >_<
Sir, thank you for this long—nothing wrong with long, that's the reason for this website—and thorough analysis. Parents have been endorsing this school to me but I really don't want to go here. TY
