What A Great Week!

What a great weekend for all students! It was nice to see commuters getting involved in all of the events that we had planned for Welcome Week. Shout out to the Welcome Week Staff for doing a great job! It was great meeting everyone at the commuter meet & greet on Thursday night, where we created mystery machines, and heard some amazing voices. The excitement continued when we welcomed back a former commuter student who just happens to be Cara Castronuova, one of the trainers from last season's Biggest Loser and two-time Golden Gloves Champion.

Not only was Cara a guest judge at Hofstra's Got Talent, she also welcomed people and signed autographs at the fitness center. While she was at Hofstra she was a commuter student from Elmont New York. But that didn't stop her from being involved on campus. She was active in her sorority Sigma Delta Tau and was a member of WRHU all while maintaining a good GPA. She's a prime example of an active commuter. Thanks Cara for coming! Hope everyone stops by Wednesday at 11:15 at our first event "Bring a Question, Find an Answer."
