Publications for Families
Hofstra Family Connection Blog
Our printed Family Connection newsletter is going green! Starting in summer 2012, you have access to the constantly-updated Family Connection Blog, informing you about campus events, personalities and issues. We are saving trees and postage, and enabling you to respond to our articles. Parents are invited to submit their "Parent Voice" blogs, describing their experiences and funny anecdotes. Just e-mail us. Below you may choose past issues of Family Connection from the drop-down menu.
Hofstra Family Link E-Newsletter
The e-letter is a monthly e-mail that discusses current topics of interest to Hofstra parents and families and reminds them of deadlines and resources. We receive parent e-mail addresses if students noted them during the admission process, and add them to our list each summer. If you are not receiving the e-letter and want to subscribe, please complete the "Sign-up for our Email Newsletter" field at the right. Please check off "Family Link E-Newsletter (Hofstra Parents & Families)". Please make sure to add Hofstra domain to your trusted list in the e-mail preferences in order for your e-mail provider not to block our e-mails.
