Keep up the great work.. and plan a visit!

It’s that time of year again. The Office of Admission is in full swing reading applications, sending out decision letters and hopefully giving a lot of students happy news before the holidays!
Hofstra Hall during our annual holiday lighting last week!
As students excitedly open up their admission letters or prepare their applications, I wanted to share with the high school seniors two important pieces of information to keep in mind:
  1. Keep up the great work in senior year! Our admission counselors look closely at students’ senior year schedules, first quarter grades and mid-year reports. We know that you have been working hard throughout high school, but it’s vital to continue a strong work ethic during senior year. Continuing academic excellence during a stressful, busy senior year and staying focused is a great indicator to colleges that you are ready for college work and a prime candidate for admission. Continue to rock AP English and Pre-Calculus and you will be rewarded!
  2. Whether you are newly admitted or getting ready to apply, there is no better time to visit campus and see the world of Hofstra. Yes, it is chilly outside. Yes, you have been looking forward to your free weekends to catch up on Netflix. Yes, it can be a long drive (especially for my New England students!) But…visiting campus is the only surefire way to see the academic buildings for your dream major, taste the delicious campus food from Bits and Bytes to the Hofstra Deli, walk down the halls of the Netherlands residence hall and meet our current students studying at Hofstra! It is impossible to imagine yourself at a college without visiting it, and we make sure your campus visit is personal, meaningful and interactive. Check out for more info on upcoming events.
Also, your campus visits are noted by our admission counselors... a fantastic way to get on their radar while applying to Hofstra!

That’s all from the Admissions Office!
