First, I hope everyone is safe and on the road to recovery after hurricane Sandy. The magnitude of superstorm Sandy has resulted in many delays, inconveniences, and struggles for thousands of people in the tri-state area and our Hofstra Community. As time progresses and the days pass we will slowly but surely resume a sense of normalcy and routine as we recover and rebuild. This brings me to my second point. When our office came back to campus on Monday we noticed a sense of frustration and concern from students about programs and events that were cancelled or post-phoned due to hurricane Sandy. Although these feelings are understandable, we ask students for their patience and understanding as we do our best to reschedule events and re-gain a sense of normality both as an office and as campus community. Since returning to campus, we have already re-scheduled the two Career Fairs that were cancelled:
The Fall Job and Internship Fair
Wednesday, November 28, 11:00a.m.-2:p.m.
Education Career Night
Thursday, November 29, 3:45p.m.-6:45p.m.
Leo Tolstoy said, “The two most powerful warriors are patience and time.” That is especially true in this situation and it will be something that I myself will try to remember the next time I have to wait on line for gas.
