Katie's favorite part of her job

My favorite part of being an admission counselor is meeting students for the first time at college fairs or high school visits, getting them excited about Hofstra and showing them what opportunities await them here!

However, the most meaningful part is when I get to see that same student submit a wonderful application, receive their acceptance and arrive on campus as a new freshman.

Gavin's favorite Hofstra moment

Admission counselor Gavin Gandulla is a Hofstra alumnus who had a cool opportunity to create a new club on campus during his time as a student. Unfortunately it's no longer around, but the process of creating a club and partnering with an organization is no small feat. Let's hear more about it!

"My favorite Hofstra moment came as a student. A friend and I were given a one in a lifetime opportunity to partner with New York Islanders executives and create a team-supported fan club on campus called Hofstra Islanders United. This club served as a link between the Islanders organization and the Hofstra student body and was a way for students to share ideas with people such as the team president."

The group with current Islander Josh Bailey
"Along with offering students discounted game tickets, player meet and greets and viewing parties for away teams, the club volunteered with the Wounded Warriors and the Islanders Children’s Foundation as well as held numerous fund raisers and raised thousands of dollars for different charities."
