Hofstra Pride

October 29th, 2014 Comments Off on Hofstra Pride


It has been a heady couple of months here at the Herbert School.

In August, The Princeton Review named our radio station, WRHU 88.7 FM, the # 1 college radio station in the country. While we have long taken pride in the station’s high standards and extensive activities—covering news, reporting on local communities, broadcasting Hofstra and professional sports (including being the flagship station for the New York Islanders), offering diverse musical programming, and so forth—we were really delighted when this recognition was bestowed.

Then in September, WRHU received a prestigious Marconi Award as the best noncommercial station in the country from the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB). We were up against a distinguished list of finalists, and the award was a tremendous boost.


We wondered how things could get any better.  And then in October, LinkedIn published a new set of ratings of universities based on the career outcomes of their graduates in eight major fields of employment. Hofstra University placed second nationally in placing graduates in desirable media positions.

We have long prided ourselves on our faculty, students, curriculum, and facilities, and have made great efforts to build ties between the Herbert School and the many media corporations in New York City and the surrounding area.

This public validation of our successes has filled us all with great satisfaction in the work we are doing and has inspired us to work even harder to build on these successes in the future.

I can’t wait to see what the months ahead bring.
