New Student Orientation is designed to ease the transition of new undergraduate students into the academic, social and extracurricular communities of the University. Beginning with the New Student Orientation program and Welcome Week, our office aims to help students acclimate to the Hofstra campus and to develop the tools needed to succeed in their first year.
The Office of Student Leadership and Activities coordinates several orientation programs for the undergraduate student population. Summer orientation is a three-day/two-night program in which new students are invited to live on campus and begin preparation for the fall semester. Students entering Hofstra in the spring semester are invited to attend a two-day Winter orientation before the beginning of the semester.

The Orientation Staff looks forward to seeing you at New Student Orientation!
