Summer Events Schedule

Sometimes when students hear about summer courses they think of classes crunched into their schedules or a rush to complete a major/distribution requirement; but if you're at Hofstra this summer, not only do you get the benefit of a full course of credits in less than half the time of a true semester, you can take full advantage of our schedule of events throughout the season. Here's a taste for Summer I:

Now no matter where you are, what you're doing, or what kind of diet you have, summer usually means one thing: ice cream. Thankfully, Hofstra didn't forget that all-important aspect of the season and is providing summer students with free ice cream in Calkins Quad between noon and 1:30 p.m. on June 7. So, if you're taking a break between classes, or even if you're enjoying a nice stroll and just so happen to come across the free ice cream stands, stop by, grab a scoop and take a load off. It's summer after all!

After you've indulged in some dessert, you may be thinking to yourself, "It is beach season...maybe I had a bit too many sweets." Not a problem!  On June 13 at 5:45 p.m., the Office of Student Leadership and Activities will be busing 30 students from Hofstra's campus, down the block to the Eisenhower Park 5K run. The race itself will be taking place at 7:00 p.m. and only requires a pair of running shoes. Participation is free for the first 30 students to sign up. Afterwards, if you enjoyed the run and would like to keep sweating this summer, the races are a weekly part of the ongoing Summer Series organized by the Long Island Road Runners Club. **UPDATE** Unfortunately, today's 5K race at Eisenhower Park has been postponed due to the inhospitable weather. Check http://www.hofstra.edu/summerfun for updates.

And after you've finished pounding the pavement, you can unwind from the rigors of studying for finals to enjoy some free food on the eleventh floor of Bill of Rights Hall at 8:00 p.m. on June 28. Take your mind off the stress of the final week of summer session and get in some quality time with your fellow students.

Beyond that it should be all pristine beaches and cool breezes - but if you decide to stay on campus for upcoming summer sessions we will be certain to have even more great events in store!
