HOLY COW!!!! I cannot believe it is the middle of August already! It seems like the class of 2011 just graduated yesterday. Its hard to imagine that in just a few short weeks we will be back in full swing of the fall semester. Residential Programs has been hard at work all summer planning a fun-filled fall semester for all of you.
We had a number of updates and renovations take place within the residence halls. Bill of Rights and Enterprise Halls received new windows and blinds, new paint, carpeting and HVAC units and all common spaces and bedrooms received new furniture. New entrance ways and lobby areas were constructed in both buildings as well. All bedrooms throughout Suffolk Hall received new bedroom furniture. Finally, most buildings in Colonial Square were painted. As you can see our Residential Operations crew has been hard at work in anticipation of your arrival in September!
Throughout the month of August our entire Residential Programs staff is in training. We are in the midst of Senior Resident Assistant Training this week. This is a group of dynamic student leaders that are available to assist you in any way possible. As a group they are involved throughout campus in a variety of different student clubs and organizations and I'm sure they would LOVE to share all of their knowledge and experiences at Hofstra with you!
We will continue to prepare and plan for your arrival this fall and are looking forward to another exciting year filled with fun, excitement and new opportunities!
