And here we go, starting off a new academic year!
There has been a lot of excitement in the Multicultural and International Student Programs Office (MISPO) during the summer. Since April, Sonia Fernandes and I have joined the MISPO team. We are excited to be a part of the Hofstra community and we look forward to meeting you and hearing about your experiences at Hofstra. Check out our new MISPO staff webpage to see who's who on with MISPO!

MISPO also co-hosted two Cultural Receptions during the Welcome Week activities. Students met the MISPO staff and various Student Affairs administrators and were able to build new friendships with new and returning students. New students, who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, and/or transgender or who identify as LGBTQ allies, were greeted by the Pride Network, Hofstra's LGBTQ student organization, who provided an overview of the activities the club will offer throughout the fall semester, leadership opportunities, and ways to connect through social media. At the Students of Color and Friend Social, students were able to meet the leaders of various student organizations at Hofstra, including HINT (Hofstra International), Intervarsity Christian Fellowship (IVCF), HOLA , Black Student Union (BSU), Collegiate Women of Color (CWC), Active Minds, and the National Association of Black Accountants. It was a great time to connect and get excited for the semester's activities!
We want to meet you in person! Come by our Open House to meet our new staff members as well as catch up with familiar faces from the MISPO team. All members of the Hofstra community are invited to come to our Open House!
