New Student Summer Orientation -- Week 8

Your Hofstra journey begins at New Student Orientation! New Student Orientation is a three-day, two-night program where all students stay overnight on campus and get their first glimpse of life at Hofstra. Transfer students are offered a one-day orientation experience and should visit the Transfer Orientation webpage for more information about their specific program. During the both programs, you will learn about Hofstra's curriculum and campus resources, tour the campus, meet faculty and staff, and begin to develop lifelong friendships with other new students. First-year students will also register for fall classes at New Student Orientation. We look forward to welcoming you to the Hofstra Pride at summer orientation!

 If you have any questions about orientation, please email us at orientation[at] or call New Student Orientation  at (516) 463-4874.
