        Great Experience Both In and Out of the Classroom!

        Hofstra was an impressive academic institution when I attended. Now I believe it's a powerhouse. There is no shortage of learning opportunities with the addition of new and emerging disciplines, and the school has fortified itself as a major player in conferences and current events. My professors were engaging and thought provoking, but the opportunities to put that learning to work - to build, lead and perform - in the TV & Radio programs were my best development. Roll Pride! (Go Dutch!)

        Great Education and Overall Experience

        I earned a Bachelors Degree in Industrial Engineering from Hofstra University. The Engineering curriculum was extremely instructional and the Mathematics, Physics, and Computer Science departments were top notch. I received an excellent education and my professors were engaging and thought provoking. The school is growing and gaining recognition rapidly and I am proud to claim Hofstra as my alma mater. Go Dutch Pride!
