I really enjoyed seeing so many great things going on across campus that I had no idea about. For example, it was fun to see the shots from various classrooms, athletic events, talks, performances, and meetings.
The more that I see of Hofstra, the more I like it! It really is a special place. My experience at a big state school was terrific, but class sizes were large, funding was always a problem, and the administration was impersonal. At Hofstra, most of us know each other in the faculty and administration. Class sizes are small. Plus, we do big things like the Presidential debates. Students are really lucky to have picked this university to attend.
Below are the photos I contributed to the twitter feed to capture my day.
|Arriving on campus with my plug in hybrid car. 1000 miles per gallon on my commute.|
|Where I cross Hempstead Turnpike. A nice bus stop and bike path along the way.|
|One of my team, Keshanti Nandlall already at work when I arrived on campus.|
|A rare moment when my crew is together. Steve Handler, Joanne Norris, Keshanti Nandlall, and Joe Murphy.|
|I had a meeting with my friend and colleague, Bret Bennington, Chair of Geology, Environment, and Sustainability and all around great guy. Here he is with Darwin. He dresses like Darwin on Darwin Day. How cool is that!|
|Ran into my good friend Linda Longmire at the Day of Dialogue talks on campus. Each year, Hofstra has a "day of dialogue" during which events are held to discuss key issues of the day.|
