The nationally known Hofstra Cheerleading Team, under the coaching of Hofstra alums, Christine Farina and Matthew Jones is a large part of the Spirit Support family. Cheerleading is very visible participating in athletic events such as Basketball games, Club Sports games and overall University events such as Fall Festival, Relay for Life, Welcome Week and more!
