ABOUT OUR STAFF Meet your three Welcome Week Coordinators (WWCs)! They’ve had a blast preparing this week especially for you, so make sure you find them throughout the week and introduce yourself! ANDREYA SHAAK, CLASS OF 2012 ­— WELCOME WEEK LEADERS Originally from Pennsylvania, Andreya Shaak is a junior broadcast journalism major and an English and Spanish minor. As a sister of Alpha Phi sorority and a station member of WRHU-FM Radio Hofstra University, Andreya loves to get involved with different clubs and organizations on campus. Last semester, she was a teacher’s assistant for writing studies and composition as well as a Spanish and communications left to right: Andreya Shaak, Kaitlin Frisch, Gennifer Delman tutor. This semester, Andreya will be a communications intern for the Early Years Institute, an organization based on Long Island. When she’s not busy around campus, you can find Andreya running in Eisenhower Park, re-reading the Harry Potter series, or cheering on her favorite football team, the Dallas Cowboys.

KAITLIN FRISCH, CLASS OF 2013 — PROGRAMMING Originally from California, Kaitlin traded in her flip-flops and surfboard for a pair of snowshoes and a sled when she headed to the East Coast last year for her first year. As an incoming sophomore, Kaitlin is gearing up for her B.F.A. audition in the Drama and Dance Department, Danceworks meetings, rehearsals for Cabaret, and pursuing a double major in creative writing. She is a firm believer that there is nothing a good Disney song can’t cure; in truth, she’s just a child at heart.

Born and raised in Rhode Island, Gennifer is thrilled to show her Hofstra Pride as a Welcome Week coordinator.

She has interned for Hearst Magazines Digital Media, contributes regularly to seventeen.com/cosmogirl, and will be interning for O, The Oprah Magazine this fall. Gennifer’s favorite things about Hofstra include the School of Communication, the vibrant campus, proximity to the city, and amazing student body. 2

WELCOME WEEK VIRTUAL FOLDER Whether it’s tips on how to stay healthy during the school year, opportunities for campus involvement, or what to do in the city on the weekends, we’ve compiled everything you need to know about Hofstra University’s many offices and resources online. With the Virtual Welcome Week Folder, you can explore Hofstra’s cocurricular, academic, career, and social offerings at your leisure, on your computer. Don’t have a computer? Head over to Hammer Lab, located across from the Joan and Donald E. Axinn Library, South Campus. Additionally, the Virtual Folder is a part of Hofstra’s “Blue and Gold Make Green” environmental initiative, as it reduces the amount of paper distributed during Welcome Week. Instead of providing approximately 1,500 new students with close to 30 pages of materials, all information is available on the Hofstra Web site.

Whether it’s attending an athletic event, volunteering time as a tutor, or joining an organization on campus, students can show their school spirit in a variety of ways.
