Hofstra University - Pride & Purpose

What we mean when we say “Hofstra University, Pride and Purpose”

Make an Impact

At Hofstra University, we will know your name. Hofstra University has the resources and advantages of a large university, but the atmosphere of a small college.

  • Our student-to-faculty ratio is 14 to 1
  • Our average undergraduate class size is 21
  • Professors – not graduate assistants – do the teaching.

You’ll get to know your professors, and they’ll get to know you. Our classes are small to encourage discussion, foster collaboration and inspire students to explore and expand their horizons.  And our professors are mentors who care deeply about your education, and are committed to helping you find your path in life. With two academic advisors—a professional student affairs advisor and a professor who teaches in your major—you are sure to get the help you need to get the most out of your education. And a dedicated student financial services counselor is available from admission to graduation to help you access information about financial aid, billing and other services.

Yet Hofstra offers the resources of a world-class university: approximately 160 undergraduate programs options and 165 graduate programs options; schools of engineering, medicine and law; a diverse undergraduate student body that comes from 45 U.S. states and 66 countries; 17 NCAA Division I sports; more than 200 student clubs and organizations; 35 residence halls; 18 eateries and cafes; a Fall Festival that has featured world-famous performers such as Kesha and Jimmy Fallon; and an alumni network of more than 134,000 who have become leaders in their fields.

... our professors are teachers and mentors who care deeply about your education, and are committed to helping you find your path in life.
