Hofstra is one of only two universities chosen to host consecutive U.S. presidential debates (2008 and 2012).

The Office of International Student Affairs helps international students reach their educational goals by providing assistance before their arrival and throughout their time at Hofstra, including academic, social, cultural, legal, and financial opportunities. Before classes begin, the office provides an intensive orientation program to introduce students to Hofstra and help them adjust to their new surroundings. The office also assists with immigration counseling and applications for optional practical training, curricular training, economic work necessity, program extensions, international student insurance, and visa renewals, as well as travel assistance.
