About the Program
The Hofstra University Discovery Program is a dynamic, interactive program designed for incoming first-year and new transfer students who wish to be actively engaged through advocacy, community service, outdoor recreation, and reflection. Participants choose a path of discovery – community empowerment, outdoor exploration, social awareness, or sustainable solutions – and are led in small groups by upper-class discovery student-leaders, faculty, staff and community partners who share the same passions for discovery. This is an opportunity to build connections, hone leadership skills and begin the transition to college life and learning. As a participant in the Discovery Program, students take their first step towards discovering their path here at Hofstra University.
What: A dynamic, interactive program designed to help students transition to college through their experience and participation in advocacy, adventure, service, and reflection.
Who: First-year and new transfer students.
