Hofstra University

Hofstra University is a private, non-profit, nonsectarian university in the United States. Its main campus is located on Long Island in the village of Hempstead, New York, approximately 7 miles east of New York City.

Hofstra is also hosting the first 2016 Presidential Debtate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

Long Island's largest private college, it originated in 1935 as an extension of New York University (NYU) under the name "Nassau College – Hofstra Memorial of New York University at Hempstead, Long Island"; in 1939, the institution separated from the NYU system and gained independence as Hofstra College, and in 1963, it gained university status. Comprising 10 schools, including a School of Medicine and a School of Law, Hofstra is noted for a series of prominent Presidential conferences, as well as being selected to host United States Presidential Debates in 2008, 2012, and 2016—the only school to do so in three consecutive campaign cycles.
