We're getting excited for the arrival of New Students!!!

Orientation Leaders & Welcome Week Coordinators
at their welcome luncheon, May 2013
The Office of Student Leadership and Activities (OSLA) has already been preparing for the arrival of our new students! We have been planning New Student Orientation, Discovery Program, Welcome Week and other events for the Fall to welcome our new students! Hopefully our new students are getting ready for these programs and thinking about all the ways they can get involved for the Fall as well! 
Today our Orientation and Welcome Week student staff departed for their two day retreat off campus. The OLs are finalizing all their plans and getting ready to see their first group of students on June 11! The WWC staff will be picking their theme for Welcome Week and finding lots of awesome ways to incorporate the common read, The Good Food Revolution by Will Allen, in to the programs they offer throughout the five days of Welcome Week. 
Discovery Students and Leaders
The OSLA staff is also finalizing plans for the Discovery Program which is a five day optional, interactive program where students get to interact with their peers, upperclassmen leaders, faculty and administrators. This year OSLA is working in collaboration with the Department of Recreation and Intramural Sports to add a new 4th track called Outdoor Exploration. Information on these programs and a sample schedule and activities can be found here. If you have questions about how to sign up you can contact the OSLA office at 516-463-6914 or, check out the application here
Finally our Welcome Week Coordinators will be working hard to plan awesome events for
you throughout the five days of welcome week (August 29-September 2). Highlights include Will Allen, the common read author, coming to speak on Friday, a Class Celebration on Thursday evening after a welcome from our Hofstra president, Explore Next Door trips throughout the weekend along with many other exciting, educational and fun programs planned by Hofstra students. If you have questions about Welcome Week feel free to call our office at 516-463-6914 or, check out
last year's schedule as an idea of what fun programs lie ahead! 

We hope you are as excited as we are to join the Hofstra family. Please take advantage of all we have to offer throughout the summer and in to the Fall semester. See you soon on campus!
