Spring Family Day, Register NOW

Spring Family Day (Saturday, April 28) is just around the corner! If you're not registered for this fantastic event, please visit and do so now!

For new parents, this is an annual event held each spring that invites our parents to experience Hofstra's campus during a truly beautiful season: Spring. It's a day you don't want to miss.

It was just today that I was walking outside on one of the quads when I was truly captivated by the natural perfume of fully bloomed tulips, forsythia, pansies, and other unique species of plants and trees that you would only be able to identify after taking the Hofstra Arboretum Tour. The arboretum tour, which will be given at 10Am on Saturday, April 28 is just one of the many fine, Hofstra specific events taking place during Spring Family Day.

Your students will learn how to succeed in obtaining internships and what steps to take to graduate on time during the Academic and Career Planning session at 11AM.

At Noon, you'll be dazzled by a student research presentation that will both expand your mind and feed your hunger for knowledge (it doesn't hurt that lunch will also be served! Yum!).

What else? Well, there's the Spring Dance Concert, the Drama and Dance Department's special dance performances that will knock your socks off.

For more information, please visit or as always, email your questions to You can also give me a ring at 516-463-4698 and I'll tell you all about how fabulous Spring Family Day will be.

Enjoy these first few days of spring,

Mary Coleman, Assistant Director of the Office of Parent and Family Programs
