Hello, everyone! I'm in the middle of my trip in South America and would like to share some photos. My friend and I landed in Lima, Peru on 24th. We stayed in Lima, Arequipa, Colca Canyon, Cusco and we just finished climbing Macchu Picchu. Congratulations to all the newly admitted students and good luck during orientation! Also, happy birthday to my boss - the pretty, witty Karla! :)

The Summer Olympics were a lot of fun to watch this year. The Games are held every four years, and there are a variety of sports featured. This year’s Summer Olympics were hosted in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The opening ceremony was on August 5th, and the Games ended on August 21. 


On12th, I watched the Men's 100-Meter Butterfly Swim final on television. When it comes to sports, I only know a few professional athletes, and Michael Phelps is one of them. Sadly he didn’t win a gold medal in this round for the United States, while a young Joseph Schooling from Singapore took the win.


The Olympics really bring people together. Everyone shares in the joy of cheering for the human spirit, pushing limits and overcoming obstacles. I highly recommend following the Summer Olympics, if you aren’t already. Watch clips on YouTube if you missed a few games, and

Dr. Christina Lacey, associate professor of physics and astronomy, is co-investigator on a $60,000 grant from NASA for a proposal, “What Makes Radio-detected and Optically-detected Supernova Remnants in NGC6946 Different?” Dr. Lacey’s successful grant allocates her observer time with the Hubble Space Telescope.

Dr. Lacey has been on the Hofstra faculty since 2008. One of her research interests is focused on supernova remnants in nearby galaxies. She is on sabbatical this fall but will be on campus working with students on radio astronomy research.

Zarb School Ranks Among Poets & Quants Top 100 U.S. MBA Programs

by Marilou R. Giammona | Office of University Relations

The Frank G. Zarb School of Business ranked 88th on the 2015 Poets & Quants Top 100 U.S. MBA Programs. The school jumped nine places from last year’s ranking of 97th.

Unlike other rankings, the Poets & Quants composite list combines the latest five most influential business school rankings in the world: U.S. News & World Report, Forbes, Bloomberg Businessweek, The Financial Times, and The Economist. Instead of simply averaging the five, Poets & Quants gives each ranking a separate weight, according to P&Q’s view of their authority. U.S. News is given a weight of 35 percent; Forbes, 25 percent; both the Financial Times and Bloomberg Businessweek are given a 15 weight; and The Economist, 10 percent.

Hofstra ranked 41st in the nation for best online MBA Program (U.S. News & World Report 20

My parents are visiting me from China, and one of the places I took them during their time here was to Montauk! It was a tough choice because of the many different beaches on Long Island and around Hofstra, but Montauk was a great choice. We filled water bottles, packed swimsuits, towels, snacks and umbrellas, and hit the road!

As we approached the Hamptons, I started noticing designer boutiques and souvenir shops everywhere.  It was really cool! Soon we arrived at an information center. I gathered two local maps, a concert schedule from the front desk and received a postcard as a free gift. I went on driving to a nearby beach. We saw a deer in a parking lot – it was so cute.

Finally, we found a beach, and there were already people playing in the sand. The sun was beating down on us, so sunscreen was a must. The ocean water was satisfyingly cold. My dad went in the water to swim, and my mom and I relaxed on the beach.

    Shopping in Long Island is really great. For serious shoppers, Roosevelt Field Mall is a good place to start, and it is just a 10-minute drive from campus. Roosevelt Field is located on 630 Old Country Road in Garden City. It opens from Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to as late as 9:30 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. This week, I happened to be in the need of a light winter jacket, so I drove to Roosevelt Field Mall  to shop.

    First of all, I know there are affordable winter jackets available at Uniqlo all year around. So I went directly to the escalator and went upstairs. Uniqlo is a Japanese brand that promotes “the Japanese values of simplicity, quality and longevity.” Entering the store, I basically see lines and lines of monochromatic short-sleeve and long-sleeve shirts and jackets. Immediately I saw one purple ultra-light down jacket hanging along with some red, black and gray jackets. I thought to myself, 'Hey,

I went to a college friend's wedding in Manhattan two weeks ago! I know both the bride and groom from college. For those who have never been to an American wedding before, I would like to tell you about what it is like. Usually, both the bride and groom's family and friends are invited in advance. Sometimes there will be a pre-wedding party, and it is less formal than the wedding ceremony. When you are not sure what to wear on the wedding day, opt for something formal. And if you need to travel for the wedding, pick clothes that are versatile and light enough to pack. My friend's wedding was held in Manhattan, so I booked a hotel and took the LIRR the day before. I packed two summer dresses with me. Interesting enough, I ran into two college friends on the wedding. They're both from China – small world! One thing I noticed is every guest is taken an instant picture at the entrance of the venue and all of our pictures are put in a photo book with wishes written down. All in all

Hot Hot Hot~ Everybody gets so hot in the summer! Wondering where to go in order to beat the heat and stay cool? Below is a list of some places  to go on Long Island.


1. Montauk 蒙托克小镇

Montauk is a really fun place to go in the summer. It has a really beautiful beach for people to spend their holidays. Also, you can see the sunrise in the morning because Montauk is on the eastern end of the South Shore of Long Island. Depending on traffic, it usually takes about 2 hours drive from the university to Montauk.
