Class of 2014
Congratulations – you're a senior! There are many things to think about as you begin your final year of undergraduate education, and the Senior Newsletter is designed to help you make the most of this year. Here are a few highlights:
- As soon as you return to campus, set up an appointment to meet with both your faculty advisor and your Advisement dean to review your DAR and discuss remaining graduation requirements. We don't want any unpleasant surprises in the semester you plan to graduate.
- You must complete a graduation application in order to graduate. If you plan to graduate in May 2014, you need to apply no later than October 1, 2013, to avoid a late fee. December 2013 graduates should apply by May 1, 2013. You may obtain the form at hofstra.edu/AcademicForms. please submit the completed form to the Office of Academic Records and Registrar in 207 Memorial Hall, South Campus.
- If you are considering graduate or professional school, you should research the application requirements and deadlines and plan your timelines now, since many applications are due during the fall semester.
- If you haven't started using the resources of The Career Center, it is crucial that you visit the center as early in the semester as possible. Regardless of your major, The Career Center staff will help you formulate a plan and pursue your career goals.
Most important, don't forget that while you need to be looking ahead, this is also a rich and important year for you academically. It is your capstone year when you will be taking the most advanced courses your department has to offer and integrating the learning you have gathered throughout your time at Hofstra. If you haven't already done so, talk to your faculty advisor in your major department about special opportunities available to students, such as a thesis, independent project, or honors seminar. Look ahead, but remember to focus on and enjoy this academic year as well.
