In these past few weeks at Hofstra, I have encountered a significant amount of diversity among students and faculty. Meeting people from right here on Long Island, my home state of California, and all the way from England or Afghanistan, has been a very rewarding experience.
The "D" of the Hofstra P.R.I.D.E. principles is "diversity and community," which includes students learning to accept people of all different backgrounds and ethnicities. Hofstra takes pride in the wide range of people who attend this university, but this intense concentration may lead some to speculate that the school tries too hard to maintain its reputation as a diverse school.
