Best thing about Hofstra is that the school represents the best of both worlds. We get the Suburban atmosphere of Long Island, but we're just a half hour away from NYC -- the biggest metropolis in the world, and the urbanity that comes with it.
Absolutely they know our names. The classes are small, so we get to actually interact with the professors. I've been here two years, and I've never taken that "typical college class" with 300 other kids, and you just fade in. It's not like that here. We are all able to truly get to know the professors, and actually learn, not just regurgitate information. Also, the Honors College is phenomenal. They do a great job of making sure that the Honors Curriculum is legitimate, and truly making it an Honors program. There are no cake-walks. But it's an Honors program--it shouldn't be.
This place is amazingly diverse. We have people from all different walks of life -- it's NYC, what else would you expect. And it adds to the educational experience. Without that, the school just wouldn't be the same.
The Best Things
Most of it. The place is gorgeous, and I have a blast here. WRHU & The Honors College make it what it is for me, but everyone has their own thing. That's what makes it great. There's something for everyone.
The Worst Things
The food could stand to be better. It's not terrible, but it's not great. But that's all college food, for the most part.
