Hofstra may not be a very prestigious institution just yet, but it's definitely getting there. President Rabinowitz has said that he wants to get the University to Ivy League status and is certainly doing a lot to reach that goal. The University will be getting a medical school in 2011, and students who are pre-med will be guaranteed a spot.
The one thing that most students seem to agree on is that the professors are definitely knowledgeable, especially when it comes to the majors. For the distribution classes that everyone is required to take, it might seem like the professors don't care or don't know very much, but once a student starts focusing on the classes for his or her major, things get a lot better. Ninety percent of Hofstra professors have the highest degrees in their fields, and they definitely pass that knowledge down to their students. The professors also help students figure out what to do during and after their time at Hofstra. The professors can assist students in finding internships and also put in a good word for certain students at former places of employment if they think a student deserves it.
