Academically, undergrads especially love to highlight the "impressive" Lawrence Herbert School of Communications, which is flush with some rather unique opportunities. For example, as one amazed students explains, Hofstra's radio station— WRHU—"is the ONLY college radio station to be a flagship station for a professional sports team. We are the radio home for the New York Islanders." Across all courses of study, Hofstra undergrads benefit from "small" class sizes. In turn, this gives students "a better opportunity to connect with their professors and advisors" than they'd have in large lectures. And, speaking of professors, the university consistently hires instructors who are "very knowledgeable and passionate about their subjects." It's also quite evident that they "really care about their students and want them to succeed." Finally, as one thrilled dance major sums up, "I could not put together a better university if I tried."
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
