Faculty, staff and fellow students were outside to greet the new families as they made their way on to the campus.
Hofstra University President Stuart Rabinowtiz was walking around campus to greet families as they made their way to the campus residencies.
Once students checked in, they started mingling with each other over lunch. They could not contain their excitement for Hofstra, as you'll see in the VINE video below.
All in all, it is an exciting day at Hofstra University!
