On November 15th, the Office of Off Campus Living and Commuting Student Services held its annual Shake-A-Rake community outreach. With 302 students in attendance, the largest turnout in the program’s history, Hofstra continues a tradition that strongly and positively bonds the community and the school. Among the students in attendance were 15 athletic teams, 7 fraternities and sororities, 1 sports club, and several international students.

Tips For Getting Your Student Prepared for the Winter!
It’s been a very confusing fall when it comes to the weather and it’s starting to get very cold outside. Winter is coming upon us! For some, this means snowball fights and snowmen, hot chocolate and staying inside with friends to watch movies, but for others this means long commutes, tons of shoveling, and being cold all the time. New York snowstorms create a winter wonderland on campus. But although snowstorms bring joy to many people, there are a lot of supplies that students can use that will really help them get through the winter months. You can help your student become prepared by making sure they have exactly what they need for this winter.
