Students are also invited to attend conferences, lectures and other events hosted by Hofstra’s academic departments and schools and the Hofstra Cultural Center.

Celebration

Every year, Hofstra celebrates its annual Sinterklaas Festival with a tree lighting ceremony. Hofstra’s tree is one of the largest living Christmas trees on Long Island. Following the ceremony, all members of the campus community are invited to visit the Dutch Holiday Village. The village resembles a quaint street in a Dutch Christmas town. Both Santa Claus and his Dutch counterpart, Sinterklaas, provide a festive welcome. Students also attend the annual Dutch, Irish and Italian Experience Festivals.

4 Run for office in the Student Government Association. 4 Write for The Chronicle, Hofstra’s student-run newspaper. 4 Go to a concert at Hofstra USA, a unique entertainment complex that is the “home base” for campus night life. 4 View contemporary art works at the Lowenfeld Conference and Exhibition Hall in the Axinn Library. 4 Cheer on one of our 18 NCAA Division I Pride teams. 4 Design a float for the Homecoming Parade. 4 Celebrate a friend’s birthday at Kate & Willy’s. 4 Buy a unique gift at the crafts fair during the annual Dutch, Irish and Italian Experience Festivals.

Career

Each September, The Career Center hosts Career Week. This week is full of special events designed to assist you in discovering, planning and achieving your career goals. Whether you are graduating in the next few months, deciding on a major, or making a career move, Career Week can help.

4 Join Hofstra Concerts, where you can organize major concert events on campus.

4 Attend a conference presented by the Hofstra Cultural Center. Leading up to the October 15, 2008, presidential debate that was held at Hofstra, and the 2008 election, Hofstra was proud to host Educate ’08, an unprecedented series of lectures, conferences, artistic performances and exhibitions, town hall meetings, and interactive forums focused on the issues, history and politics of presidential elections. Educate ’08 provided our students, faculty and the surrounding community with access to the newsmakers, scholars and policymakers who have unique insight and knowledge of the American political system. Visit hofstra.edu/debate to learn more about this exciting time in Hofstra’s history.

If you want a break from campus, take Hofstra’s free shuttle bus two miles to the local Long Island Rail Road station for a 30-minute trip into Manhattan. Enjoy the outdoors? Beautiful Jones Beach State Park and its world-famous boardwalk are 10 miles from campus.
