It is the policy of the Office of Residential Programs at Hofstra University to investigate any report of a missing student living in one of the University’s residence halls. All students residing in a campus residence hall are requested to complete a Confidential Contact Information form, available upon check-in to their residence hall. The resident student is asked to identify the name and contact number of the individual(s) to be contacted in the event the student is determined to be missing, as set forth below. This contact information will be registered confidentially and may not be disclosed, except to law enforcement personnel in furtherance of a missing person investigation and authorized Hofstra University officials, including Public Safety officers. Hofstra understands that students may make arrangements to stay outside of the residential halls, and as such, the location of students in the halls is not monitored by Residential Assistants or other University staff. If a student intends to leave his or her residence hall for an extended period of time, the student is strongly encouraged to advise the residence hall staff before leaving, to avoid the student being reported “missing.” If, however, there is reason to believe a resident student is missing, all reasonable efforts will be made to locate the student to determine his or her state of health and well-being. These efforts, which are done in conjunction with the Department of Public Safety, include, but are not limited to, checking the student’s room, speaking with friends and/ or roommates, checking ID access, locating the resident student’s vehicle and calling the student’s cell phone number or other known contact information. Where a student has been missing for 24 hours, students, employees, or other individuals should make a report to the Office of Residential Programs, the Dean of Students Office, or the Department of Public Safety. All missing student reports will be referred immediately to the Department of Public Safety. If upon investigation by the Department of Public Safety, the resident student is determined missing, staff from Public Safety and/or Student Affairs will contact the resident’s designated “Confidential Contact” within 24 hours. For any resident student under the age of 18, Hofstra will notify a custodial parent or guardian, in addition to any other individual designated on the Confidential Contact Information form, within 24 hours after the time the resident student is determined to be missing by the Department of Public Safety. Public Safety will continue to investigate, utilizing established investigative procedures in collaboration with staff from Residential Programs, other campus offices and local law enforcement agencies. Where a Confidential Contact cannot be located or has not been assigned, Public Safety will inform the appropriate law enforcement agency and/or make contact with the student’s parents or legal guardian. In all cases where the Department of Public Safety determines that a student is missing, Public Safety will notify the appropriate law enforcement agency within 24 hours of that determination.
CHANGE OF PROGRAM, WITHDRAWAL
Change of program may be made during the first three days of the session for courses scheduled for three weeks. For those courses scheduled for shorter periods, change of program may be made no later than the second day of the session. The last day to drop a course is January 7, 2014. The first day of withdrawal (W grade) is January 8, 2014. SEMESTER ATTENDANCE CONFIRMATION
At the beginning of each semester, students are expected to log in to their Hofstra portal to confirm semester attendance. Failure to confirm attendance within the first three (3) weeks of class during a fall or spring semester may result in the inability to access certain areas on the portal (e.g., Blackboard). For terms that are of shorter duration (e.g., January, summer) the corresponding deadlines will be available online. All registered students may withdraw from courses before classes begin. Students who wish to withdraw from the January Session must complete the Withdrawal/Academic Leave Form found on Hofstra Online. If you are unable to access the portal and are an undergraduate student, please call the Center for University Advisement at 516-463-6770. Graduate students need to call the Office of Graduate Admissions at 516-463-4723 (see “Grades” section in the online Undergraduate or Graduate Studies Bulletin). Note: Non-attendance of classes does not constitute an official withdrawal, and does not relieve the student of his or her financial obligation, or entitle the student to a refund. REPEATED COURSE

Among the films to be treated are: Top Hat, Summertime, Senso, Death in Venice, Don’t Look Now, The Anonymous Venetian, Fellini’s Casanova, Dimenticare Venezia, The Comfort of Strangers, Dangerous Beauty, The Wings of the Dove, and Bread and Tulips. Although focused on film analysis, the course will also have a strong interdisciplinary component: cinematic representations of Venice will be constantly compared to those of painting and literature. Furthermore, since the course is given on-site, students will visit the actual shooting locations and use the above-cited films to learn how to “read” Venice itself and to (counter-)map its cinematic geography. The course may used in partial fulfillment of the Special Language Option and to satisfy the LT distribution requirement.
