As I approach my last Thanksgiving break as a student at Hofstra University, there are many reasons to be thankful.
First, I am thankful for the wonderful and dedicated professors at Hofstra. I have had classes taught by professors who have years of experience in the field and are willing to go above and beyond to help me.
In addition, I am thankful for the opportunities these professors and administrators have provided me. I volunteered at a Presidential Debate, networked with professionals at luncheons and traveled into New York City for shows, interviews and class trips.
Finally, I am thankful for everyone I have met at Hofstra. All the people I have encountered at this school have shaped my life in some way. I made friends that I will have for the rest of my life.
I hope you have as much to be thankful for as I do. Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!
It's not unusual to see Hofstra students helping each other and brightening someone's day with a smile.
But on Wednesday, Hofstra students brought their kindness to the next level by celebrating Random Acts of Kindness Day.
Some students bought coffee for a stranger while others left notes of encouragement throughout the campus. Random Acts of Kindness Day was a special day devoted to celebrating the good in people and helping the members of the Hofstra Pride.
Students took to Twitter to talk about the kindest experience they've had at Hofstra.
