A University of Distinction
Hofstra University is the largest private college on Long Island, New York. Since its founding as a commuter college in 1935, Hofstra has evolved into a nationally and internationally renowned university that continues to achieve further recognition as an institution of academic excellence. That’s why Hofstra is included in The Princeton Review's Best 373 Colleges (2011) and Best Northeastern Colleges, U.S. News & World Report's "America's Best Business Schools" (2010), and Fiske Guide to Colleges (2011), and is ranked by Forbes magazine. Among other private Long Island colleges, we are the only university that grants the Phi Beta Kappa distinction, and has the largest number of students and professionals going on to pursue graduate and post-graduate programs of study. In addition to the myriad opportunities available on Hofstra's lively campus, students have easy access to, and benefit from, the academic, cultural, media and career opportunities of nearby New York City.
And that's not all. Hofstra continually aspires to reach new heights and offer our students even more. The Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine at Hofstra University welcomed its inaugural class in August 2011, and strives to become a leader in medical education. The University will soon establish a School of Engineering and Applied Science with an innovative co-op and cross-disciplinary education program. Hofstra continues to add innovative programs and enhanced resources, all for you.
