Hofstra gets typical Northeastern weather—bad winters, rainy springs. Toward the end of the semester, even though it does rain a lot, the trees and flowers on campus bloom, and it looks really nice. Unfortunately, that rain practically floods campus, and it is almost impossible to get anywhere without having to walk through a few puddles. But spring does bring the opportunity to go to Jones Beach, which is about a 15-minute drive from campus. When it snows, it's pretty hard to get around, and the University will definitely cancel classes if there is a lot of snow in the forecast.
It also gets very windy a lot of the time. It seems to get worse when you're walking between the Towers, which creates a massive wind tunnel. The bad weather just comes with the territory.
