Hello fellow Hofstra parents! One of the things I hear often when speaking with you is that we don't know what's going on at Hofstra with our students. My student doesn't tell me anything! As a parent of a third-year, I researched online how Hofstra communicates. Be sure to check out this blog and get connected by signing up to receive the Hofstra Family Link e-Newsletter. (Sign up here.)
Additionally, you may want to get informed on social media! On Facebook, we have @HofstraU - Hofstra University, @HofstraParents - Hofstra Parents, @HofstraBookstore - Hofstra University Bookstore, and many more accounts for students where you can see posts with up-to-date information and events.
On Twitter, you can follow @HofstraU, @HofstraParents, @HULconnect (library hours and updates), @Hofstracareer (The Career Center), @HofstraRec (Hofstra Recreation), and @HofstraPride (Hofstra University Pride Athletics).
Checking out these sites that will give you a sense of your student's interests, what is going on at Hofstra, and future topics for discussion with them.
Hope this helps you keep in the know and get back in touch with your students!
Many thanks to the parents who attend the Parent Council meetings in person, online, and via telephone! It's wonderful to get involved through Parent Council.
Secretary, Hofstra Parent Council
