The First Year

an integrated community — a personalized experience

The First Year of college should be an

extraordinary experience, a time when you explore new ideas, meet new friends and begin to find the path that’s right for you. Because no two students are alike, and because we want to ensure that every new Hofstra student has a positive experience, we have developed unique first-year programs designed to ease students into the life of the University. The first year at Hofstra University is full of possibilities. We are confident that one of these options will be right for you.
First-Year Seminars and Clusters, part of the First-Year Connections program, are integrated academic and extracurricular offerings that draw together students with similar interests. Seminars feature small, discussion-based classes; clusters are sets of interrelated courses that are designed to complement each other. The idea is that students who take seminars or clusters together make friends more quickly, form study groups and generally have an easier time adjusting to college. The courses you take in seminars and clusters all satisfy general education requirements – no matter what Hofstra school you eventually enroll in or what major you declare.

some of the courses you can experience
v ANTHROPOLOGY: Why Chimps Don’t Drive Ferraris v ECONOMICS: Macro Freakonomics v FINE ARTS: Leonardo da Vinci to Andy Warhol: Why Art and Artists Cause Trouble v HISTORY: Shop Till You Drop: Desire, Consumer Culture, and the Emergence of the Modern, 1860-1914 v MUSIC: From iPod to Imax: Making Music on Your Computer v PHILOSOPHY: The Ghost in the Machine: Thinking About the Soul

v F1: The Psychology of Everyday Life
Everyday life is filled with complexities that range from the minor to the extraordinary, including life-altering choices that affect our relationships, career options, health and well-being. Especially for first-year college students, it may seem that every aspect of life requires thought and attention, all at the same time. In this cluster, we examine psychological and philosophical approaches to the challenges of everyday life. Issues include personal goals, conformity, stress, relationships, health-promoting versus health-damaging behaviors, self-deception, and the role of morality and ethics in defining a good individual life. Students are encouraged to think critically about the topics studied, to understand how they apply to their lives, and to express and examine their opinions about current controversies. v PSYCHOLOGY 1, Introduction to Psychology v PHILOSOPHY 14, Introduction to Ethics v COMPOSITION 1

v F2: Film and Philosophy
This cluster integrates introductory courses in film and philosophy with first-year composition. The film course introduces the basic language of filmic expression and the methodologies of film study, including their influence on television and video. Emphasis is on ways of looking at films and television, the major concepts of theory, the various forms of film and television, and the techniques that determine visual styles. In the philosophy course students consider whether film is a passive mirror of a pre-existing reality, or whether we should think of it as possessing the power to actively construct a reality of its own. Can film be morally or socially dangerous? In the composition course students will write in a variety of genres about their work in the other two courses. v RADIO, TELEVISION, FILM 10, Introduction to Film and Television Study v PHILOSOPHY 10, Introduction to Philosophy v COMPOSITION 1

At Hofstra, we want our first-year students to feel at home, both academically and socially. Seminars and clusters offered through the First-Year Connections program address both parts of this goal. We offer 40 first-year seminars for fall 2012. These are small classes, reserved for first-year students, in which students work closely with a professor on a topic in that professor’s particular area of research and expertise. We have designed our seminar topics to fit every interest, from art to global justice, from dinosaurs to politics. All are designed to help you get to know New York City. In addition to seminar courses like these, we offer 11 clusters – again, reserved for first-year students – composed of introductorylevel required courses and designed to be taken together. For example, a student may study slavery in America in a history course, while reading Huckleberry Finn in the linked English class. In another cluster, students may take a business course in information technology, while studying ethics in a linked philosophy course. We have designed these clusters of courses with a wide variety of majors in mind and, like the seminars, all are designed to help you get to know New York City. Whether you enroll in a cluster or seminar – or, in some cases, both – you will satisfy graduation requirements and, at the same time, take the introductory courses in your eventual area of study. The following pages describe some of the seminars and clusters that are available for the fall 2012 semester. Take a look at some of the courses you can experience in your first year at Hofstra.

"My first-year geology seminar not only helped me complete my science requirement, but it also provided a great start to my college career. The fact that the class size was so small and everyone else was also just starting college made it really easy to make friends. The field trips were a great way to see the city and get some hands-on learning. Looking back on it, I’m really glad I chose that route instead of jumping into all regular classes." — Amanjot Kaur, Class of 2013 “I think what’s nice for students in the First-Year Connections program is that they all know each other as they go from class to class. They have a real sense of camaraderie.” — Lisa Dresner Assistant Professor of Writing Studies and Composition, Hofstra University

v F10: Pre-Health Sciences
Most medical, dental and veterinary schools require a solid foundation in science, particularly biology and chemistry. After all, organisms are massive collections of biological molecules executing complex combinations of chemical reactions in a highly controlled and regulated manner. This cluster explores general chemistry, animal form and function, and the interplay between these disciplines in the function of organisms, particularly humans. Throughout the cluster, we consider how various chemical and biological processes are related and influence the human condition. v BIOLOGY 12, Animal Form and Function v CHEMISTRY 3A, General and Inorganic Chemistry v COMPOSITION 1

“The environment that First-Year Connections provides is great! There were only 10-15 people in each seminar, so we all got to know one another and the professors really well. FYC is a great way to build relationships right from the beginning. I met one of my best friends through being a part of FYC together, and I developed great relationships with the professors as well.” — Chelsea Whitfield, Class of 2011

“I am enrolled in the iPod to Imax first-year seminar. I have nothing but great comments about the class. The program organizes smaller classes to help first-year students adapt to college life easier. I love the one-on-one interaction between classmates and professors, and the comfort of a smaller group, so I am not discouraged to ask questions. Furthermore, the FYC program offers unique programs for students, so they can get hands-on experience and knowledge in an area they didn't realize they had an interest in previously. Finally, I love the fact that these seminars count toward distribution requirements needed to graduate from Hofstra. Nothing is greater than receiving credit for something you enjoy doing." — Samara Shandler, Class of 2015

Hofstra University

Honors College

Honors College is designed for highly motivated, high-achieving students who want to make the most of their college years.

v A community of highly motivated students and faculty. v A conversation about ideas and how they figure in the world. v A commitment to reaching new levels of achievement. v A challenge to extend your horizons.

Culture & Expression
Culture & Expression consists of team-taught courses designed by a hand-picked team of Hofstra’s distinguished full-time faculty. Each semester, this group selects a unique list of readings and other objects of study in the humanities and social sciences. Via lectures and small group discussions, students experience the breadth of university learning and discover how disciplines approach cultural artifacts differently and thus produce different kinds of knowledge. This experience equips students to negotiate the challenges of whatever field of study they choose.

Where does it fit?
“Culture & Expression has been great both because of what we read, and the way it brings all of us together. Honors housing reinforces that sense of community.” — Natalie Hoeting Class of 2012 Culture & Expression is Honors College’s first-year cluster. It fits into every Hofstra degree program. Specifically, Culture & Expression partially satisfies the University-wide degree requirements in the humanities and social sciences.

Honors College Housing
Many Honors College students choose to live in Liberty/Republic Halls or VanderPoel Hall, where they enjoy an even greater sense of community and an exceptional level of support from faculty mentors, our professional staff, specially selected student leaders, and one another.

The best of two worlds – a nurturing community within a research university
You will be part of a close-knit community of students and faculty not unlike what you’d find at a small liberal arts college. At the same time, however, you will have an extraordinary range of opportunities at a research university with about 140 undergraduate program options offered through Hofstra College of Liberal Arts and Sciences; the School of Communication; the Frank G. Zarb School of Business; the School of Education, Health and Human Services; and the School of Engineering and Applied Science.

An extraordinary first-year experience
Our first-year curriculum, our extracurricular activities and our administrative support are all designed to help you make a smooth transition from high school to college life. All first-year Honors College students participate in our four-course, two-semester cluster called Culture & Expression. Each Honors College entering class comes together through shared readings and conversations in Culture & Expression. We also introduce you to one another and campus life via on-campus events; trips to New York City for theater, museums and other cultural opportunities; and outdoor activities in the surrounding area. Many Honors College students participate in ongoing social service opportunities on campus and in the broader community.

School for University Studies
“The School for University Studies was a great program that helped me make an easy transition from high school to college. The professors are dedicated to helping students learn and grow to their full potential. The classes were engaging, relaxed, and anything but ordinary.” — Rachel Lipkin Class of 2012

Students in the Freshman Program also have the opportunity to take courses in their academic majors. As with all first-year programs, all courses taken in the Freshman Program count toward the student’s degree. Also included in the curriculum are excursions that supplement the themes of Freshman Program courses. For example, students enrolled in the course “Brooklyn and Beyond” attended a production of the Brooklyn Academy of Music along with course faculty and students from the Department of Drama and Dance. School for University Studies students also visited the Guggenheim and Brooklyn Museums as part of their course on “Women Writers and Artists in the 20th Century.” Following a longstanding Hofstra tradition, the School for University Studies has developed a peer teacher program. Through this program, former Freshman Program students return to the classroom and share their experiences, serving as role models and providing academic support to current students. School for University Studies students receive one-on-one advisement and registration support throughout their time in the Freshman Program. Classes in the Freshman Program are kept small to encourage interaction between students and faculty. School for University Studies students participate in all aspects of University life, including on-campus housing, athletics, intramural sports and student organizations.

Hofstra’s School for University Studies – which has been helping students succeed for more than three decades – offers students the opportunity to start their college experience with a year of innovative curriculum and academic support within the larger Hofstra community.
Students in the School for University Studies begin their Hofstra education in the intimate setting of the Freshman Program, while having all the resources of the University at their disposal. The curriculum of the Freshman Program includes one interdisciplinary core course, a seminar, a writing course and a departmental course. Past core courses and seminars have included: Core Courses Journeys Through a Lifespan Narrative, Identity and Community Power and Society Self-Making/Self-Knowing Seminars Culture, Mind and Education Developmental Disabilities Discovering History Juvenile Justice System

On a trip to Manhattan, School for University Studies students spent five hours at ABC Studios and met with the people who make the nightly news and special broadcasts possible. Seeing all that goes into making a broadcast happen was an eye opener for the group.

Living/Learning Communities

Where EACH facet of your college EXPERIENCE ENRICHES the others.
Borrowing from the thematic learning and close-knit classroom settings that are hallmarks of the First-Year Connections program, Hofstra has created special first-year residence opportunities. Thematic “living/learning communities” are associated with several first-year clusters and seminars, giving students the opportunity to live with many of the same students they are in class with, as well as students who share the same passion for political and social issues, health sciences, leadership, math/science/engineering, healthy living, environmental awareness, or the arts. Through these energetic living/learning communities, Hofstra students are exposed to environments that are intellectually stimulating, supportive, and conducive to building lasting friendships and a memorable first year. Students who choose a living/learning community reside together in the Netherlands Complex* in a house with 55 other first-year students. These students enjoy class-based activities as well as events within their living/learning community. This housing option is open to all first-year students, regardless of the first-year program they choose.*

“If you live in the Netherlands, you get to experience something called a living/learning community. I am in the Leadership House. We do lots of fun programs that revolve around leadership. It is a great way to make friends with people who are also aspiring to become leaders. We are like one big happy family!” — Jen Gold LLC resident, Class of 2015

“Because of the First-Year Connections program, I was able to meet people who shared many of my interests, and the program helped me make good friends” — Clifford Chapin Former LLC resident, Class of 2010

Commuting students who register for the associated First-Year Connections clusters and seminars may also participate in the activities affiliated with these living/learning communities.

Division of Student Affairs
your life on campus
find and focus your true strengths outside the classroom
The Division of Student Affairs is dedicated to helping new students acclimate to the Hofstra campus and adjust to college life. Services range from helping familiarize first-year students with the resources offered by the University to offering time management and study skills sessions. A student’s journey at Hofstra begins during the summer with the New Student Orientation program. This program introduces new students to available campus resources, faculty and academic advisors, and the overall campus culture. During the summer, every student is assigned an assistant dean from University Advisement, who serves as the student’s non-major advisor throughout his or her time at Hofstra. Advisement deans work closely with new students in planning academic course work and ways to enhance their experience at Hofstra. Deans also help clarify Hofstra’s degree requirements, assist with goal-setting and major exploration, and connect students with faculty members for advice on pursuing studies within specific majors. Orientation continues with our optional Discovery Program, followed by Welcome Week, complete with social and academic programs, an activities fair, trips to New York City and local excursions. Throughout the year, the 16 departments in the Division of Student Affairs host a number of activities and events, giving students the opportunity to meet other students and get involved in campus life.
