Hofstra has been home to quite a few historical events and welcomed a number of prominent figures to campus over the years. For example...
The University proudly presented Martin Luther King, Jr., Dwight D. Eisenhower, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and more with honorary degrees. Hofstra also hosted two (soon to be three) presidential debates in 2008 and 2012.
The Annual Shakespeare Festival at Hofstra has been performed regularly from 1951 through 2008 on a 5/6 life-sized replica of the Globe stage. The Festival celebrated its 50th year in 2000.
History continues to be made at Hofstra, and we look forward to having YOU be a part of it with us!
