Discovery Program:
Sunday August 26, 2018 through Wednesday, August 29, 2018.
This optional program, which happens immediately prior to Welcome Week, is a dynamic, interactive program designed to help students transition to college through participation in advocacy, adventure, service and reflection, which occurs both on campus and at service learning opportunities throughout the New York metropolitan area. In 2017 the “discovery path” themes were Community Awareness, Outdoor Exploration, or Leadership.

Welcome Week is a five-day schedule of events designed to introduce you to the Hofstra campus, the rigor of academic life, our rich culture and traditions, on-campus resources, and the exciting diversity of Hofstra and the community around us. You will have the opportunity to participate in academic, social, athletic and community events as well as partake in trips to New York City and the surrounding Long Island community.
