Hello Commuters! 


The end of the semester is near! Remember to check out the Final Exams Schedule to make sure you are prepared.

If you are graduating this month, congratulations! Your hard word has paid off! Make sure to visit Hofstra's Commencement Website to get answers to any questions you have.

Lastly, a great way to productively spend your summer is to take summer courses. You can complete a course in as little as 3 weeks and it can help lighten your course load during the school year. Check out the Summer Sessions Bulletin here!

We hope you have a safe and healthy summer. We'll be here all summer if you need anything. Otherwise, see you in September!
