Lucky for us, we don’t have to travel off of Long Island to attend a great college or university. There are plenty right here at home.
Long Islanders Voted Hofstra University in Hempstead the Best College/University on Long Island!
1000 Hempstead Tpke.
Hofstra, a five-time Best of L.I. winner, was the site of the final presidential debate and will be home to Long Island’s future medical school. And not to be biased or anything, but their new journalism center is state of the art. Not only is every nook of the campus perfectly manicured, you feel like you are on an upstate campus, while smack in between the greatest city in the world and the greatest beaches in the world—and that’s a reason to have Pride.
