Hofstra Goes To Washington!

Last week Lindsay, Gavin and Pride Guide Jack Saleeby went to the Admitted Student Day Washington DC Reception and decided to stop by the White House and Lincoln Memorial/Washington Monument to show some Hofstra Pride! 

President Obama came to Hofstra twice, in 2008 and 2012,  to participate in the presidential debates. We had to return the favor :).

Spring time snow!

With tomorrow being the first day of April, I know I thought we were finally done with the snow! However, that is not the case on Long Island! Waking up to a snow filled campus is extremely discouraging, but the Hofstra campus always looks so beautiful, even when it is covered in snow! A couple of Hofstra students felt inspired this morning to Instagram the snow, even though most of us are just trying to pretend it isn't real! 
Here are some of those pictures from this morning!

March Madness Flashback

If you're like us, you're anxiously analyzing your NCAA March Madness bracket...looking for any potential upsets lurking beneath the 8th seed.

A couple of us in the Admission ofice are huge basketball fantatics. We just love the sport! Some of us remember when Hofstra University made the NCAA tournament.

It was 14 years ago. Jay Wright, current head coach of the Villanova Wildcats, was the coach of the Hofstra basketball team. He took them to the tournament in back-to-back years, winning the America East conference in 2000 and 2001. Here is he is pictured below after winning at Hofstra.

Indeed it was an amazing moment. And while Hofstra has come close to making the tournament in the recent past, we're die'ing for the University to get there again!

Next year is looking promising. Hofstra has great transfers on the bench who were not eligible to play this year. Once they're out on the court with head coach Joe Mihalich, the Hofstra Pride will no doubt get their chance to dance in March Madness.
