Hofstra is very gay friendly. The Pride Network is probably the best example of that-it brings the GLBTQ community together along with heterosexuals that consider themselves allies. There was even a drag show in the fall 2009 semester that attracted a lot of students.
Hofstra's a pretty liberal campus, but not many students are very politically inclined. When we hosted the third presidential debate in 2008, people were a lot more active, but now that we don't have that anymore, everyone is back to being just regular college students who aren't very interested or involved in politics.
Hofstra's a pretty expensive school, so the assumption is that everyone that goes there is rich. This is not the case at all, and most students have ridiculously high loans every semester just to be able to attend the University. While you will see a few BMWs and Mercedes-Benzes in the parking lots, you'll also see some Fords and Toyotas, as well.
Most Common Religions
Many students at Hofstra are either Jewish or Catholic, but there are other religions mixed in, as well.
Minority Clubs on Campus
There are tons of minority clubs on campus for almost any nationality or ethnicity you can think of. Even though Hofstra is a predominately white school, there are more than enough organizations to cater to the needs of minority students.
Did You Know?
Hofstra students come from 49 states and territories and 71 countries.
