    Hofstra UpClose

    Interested in becoming a Hofstra student-for-a-day? The Hofstra UpClose Program allows prospective students to experience a day in the life of a Hofstra student. During your visit you will meet with a current student who is pursuing a degree in your major area of interest. This student will act as your host for an “UpClose Look” to what student life is all about at Hofstra. Activities include, but are not limited to: attending classes, meeting faculty and staff in your area of academic interest, dining on campus and exploring opportunities to get involved in clubs and organizations.

    In college, it is common for students to not have class every day. Therefore, some of our majors have limited class availability on specific days of the week. If you are interested in one of the majors below, please consider registering for an UpClose visit one of the weekdays listed below. If these days do not fit your schedule, we will work with you to accommodate your visit on a different day of the week. To see our full list of majors, click here.

    Note: priority for April visits will be given to admitted students.
