Happy New Year to All Hofstra Parents

The fall semester of 2012 has come and gone, and despite early reports to the contrary, the world did not go along with it. Therefore, since we are in the midst of January intersession and a vast majority Hofstra students have flocked home during the break, we would like to extend our best wishes for a happy, successful 2013. We are so proud of every single one of our students--and we're sure you are too. So, we hope you and your families have a healthy start to the new year as we prepare for the coming spring semester; but for those who decided to stick around during intersession: we have plenty events to keep them busy until the spring.



One of the best things about winter on campus is how,
after a snowstorm, the trees seem to cradle the season
in their branches. It's the closest thing to a Robert
Frost poem this side of New England.









Please urge your students to take advantage of some of the great events we have on campus during January break. Click ahead to see some suggestions on what they can do in the coming days.





One of my favorite things to do at Hofstra is to get together with some buddies and cheer on the PRIDE. Few things can and if your student is into basketball or wrestling, there is a full slate of games and matches in the month ahead. Here are a few of the home dates during Intersession:
