9 a.m.-6 p.m. Alumni and Family Weekend Registration

103 Breslin Hall, South Campus Harold M. Hastings, Professor and Chair, Department of Physics and Astronomy, Hofstra College of Liberal Arts and Sciences A course that is little about Zen, and a lot about the studentfaculty experience.

Friday, September 24, 2010 10:10-11 a.m. continued (Choose one.) v Forensic Accounting

106 Breslin Hall, South Campus Ralph S. Polimeni, Professor and Chaykin Endowed Chair in Accounting, Department of Accounting, Taxation and Legal Studies in Business, Frank G. Zarb School of Business Accounting and detective work have combined to form a “super sleuth” specialty known as forensic accounting. This discipline within the field of accounting has become increasingly popular in recent years. In this model class, Professor Polimeni will present an overview of forensic accounting, discuss some cases, and explain what is needed to become a forensic accountant.

v Put Down the Computer and Back Away Slowly

105 Breslin Hall, South Campus Terry Godlove, Senior Associate Dean for First-Year Programs and Professor, Department of Philosophy, HCLAS At the heart of a liberal arts education is the ability to follow an argument as it twists and turns through the written or spoken word. That, in turn, requires that one sit still and think for a while — sometimes for a long while. Are computers a benefit or hindrance? In this session, we will consider this question.

11:10 a.m.-Noon (Choose one.) Faculty Model Classes — Classes Without Quizzes

v Why Are We Here? Or, Waddya Gonna Do With That?

103 Breslin Hall, South Campus Ralph R. Acampora, Associate Professor, Department of Philosophy, HCLAS We will perform a thinking exercise that should help you get a better feel for what philosophy is like as a practice. The activity will engage you in reflection of everyday living, parenting and money matters, and will then move on to wider concerns of society, nature, and cosmos. Our goal will be twofold: for you to have an acquaintance with the kind of inquiry your student(s) will be undertaking if they enroll in philosophy curriculum, and for you to appreciate why s/he should take at least one philosophy course both for mental hygiene and as an antidote to the perils of narrow training. The only prerequisites are an open mind and sense of humor.

v A Scientific Approach to Intervention for Individuals With Autism Spectrum Disorders 105 Breslin Hall, South Campus Mary McDonald, Assistant Professor, Department of Counseling, Research, Special Education and Rehabilitation, School of Education, Health and Human Services  Autism is a complex neuro-behavioral disorder that affects 1 in 110 children. The increasing incidence of autism and the unknown etiology make this a disorder that requires a great amount of further research. Autism continues to be noted in the media on a regular basis, and the public is often misinformed regarding the efficacy of various interventions available to individuals with autism. This session will provide an overview of the autism spectrum and implications for treatment using a scientific approach.

v Live Streaming News Events

106 Breslin Hall, South Campus Geoffrey A. Roth, Assistant Professor, Department of Journalism, Media Studies, and Public Relations, School of Communication Journalism Tools is an introductory course for students in the Journalism, Media Studies, and Public Relations Department in the School of Communication. In the course, students explore both the editorial and production tools that are needed to be successful in the world of multimedia journalism. In this model class, students learn the history of live coverage of news events and are shown how the economics of live broadcasting have radically changed, making it possible to “go live” from just about anywhere. The class includes a hands-on demonstration of how to broadcast an event live.

Noon-2 p.m. Lunch and Resource Fair Multipurpose Room, Sondra and David S. Mack Student Center North Campus Learn all about Hofstra’s offices, including Student Counseling Services, The Career Center, Fitness Center, Alumni Organization, Athletics, and much more.
