Hofstra University, founded in 1935, offers unlimited opportunities!
The University's environment of intellectual and personal growth is enhanced by its suburban location, only 40 kilometers from New York City. Hofstra regularly hosts leading intellectuals, artists, opinion makers, and political leaders for special on-campus events.
Students play principal roles in shaping their own degree program. Professors and advisers are available throughout the academic year to assist in course selection and planning. Hofstra's faculty are highly trained professionals who will motivate and challenge you to do your very best. With an average class size of 22 students, there is plenty of opportunity to work closely with your professors.
The university's 37 residential facilities include several types of living spaces that accommodate 4,200 students from 51 U.S. states and territories and 73 countries.
An accurate measure of the academic excellence of any university is the professional accreditations awarded to its individual programs and to the institution as a whole. One of Hofstra's 21 accreditations is that of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.
Students are encouraged to participate in all campus activities. There are more than 170 clubs and organizations from which to choose, and Hofstra's recreational facilities, which include an indoor, Olympic-sized swimming pool and a Recreation Center complete with weight room and indoor track, are among the finest in the country.
