Discovery Program 2013

Jenny (Jeanette)'s Discovery Group. 2013
 As told by Ms. Rowe:

The Discovery Program, run by the Office of Student Leadership & Activities, is one of the best kept secrets here at Hofstra.  My daughter participated in the program as a freshman and just finished her second go-round as a Discovery Leader.  In a very short time, this program points incoming students on an amazing path of leadership training and community involvement.  The people who run the Discovery Program engage and mentor these kids with fantastic results.  Take a look at the Discovery Leaders' bios on the Hofstra website.  They are quite impressive.  All of these kids have come through this program and continue to be involved as upperclassmen.  I can't even express how grateful I am that we stumbled upon this program.  If you have an incoming freshman, this is money well spent!

Cub Zone 2013!

Thank you to Catherine Zonsky, Assistant Dean of University Advisement who recapped this year's Cub Zone event.

Saturday morning of Family Weekend included Cub Zone, an arts & crafts extravaganza, for children ages 6 – 11 that were joining in the festivities with their families.  The children showed their creativity through a variety of crafts that included monster puppets, Halloween masks and drawings.   Children also entertained themselves with video games, leaping over clouds and mushrooms or dancing to the beat.  Others tried their hand at the tables with air hockey, pool and ping pong.  Kate & Willy joined in the fun.  They tried their best at ping pong though it was tough for them to maneuver that little ball with their big paws.  They were awesome at arts & crafts and made some pretty pictures. And we’re not “lion”!
