Spring Family Day: Saturday, April 28, 2012[updated April 26, 2012]
See our famous tulips and campus in full bloom! Did you know that a beautiful ivory-white tulip was named "Hofstra University Tulip"? On October 3, 1985, Dr. Cornelius Boertien, commissioner for the Queen of the Netherlands to the Province of Zeeland, formally designated and presented to Hofstra the first bulbs of this flower hybrid named for the University.
You will be able to see thousands of different kinds of tulips during Spring Family Day, Saturday, April 28, 2012.
