Soccer as the Beautiful Game!

Over 300 journalists, scholars, and fans from over 25 countries were on campus this weekend to attend the international conference, “Soccer as the Beautiful Game: Football’s Artistry, Identity & Politics.” This conference looked at the economic, political, and the social impact that soccer has. An immense highlight of this conference was the appearance of international soccer legend, Pele! Over one thousand people attended the John Cranford Adams Playhouse during this conference to be there as Pele was awarded an honorary degree from Hofstra University! There is also a plaque in the James Shuart Stadium now commemorating Pele's visit to our University! Truly an amazing event full of appreciation, inspiration, and of course, soccer!

This weekend, the Hofstra Cultural Center and the Hofstra University Department of History are honored to have legendary football player Edson Arantes do Nascimento, or better known as Pele, present his international conference titled "Soccer as the Beautiful Game: Football's Artistry, Identity, and Politics." This is a conference that explores the  historical, political, economic and humanitarian impact of soccer, which is perfect timing since everyone is in anticipation for the World Cup 2014! Also while Pele is on campus this weekend, Hofstra will award him with an honorary degree!

#Hofstra sunset!

What other University has thousands of photos of just their sunsets? That's right, Hofstra does! It is no secret to anyone that follows Hofstra on any type of social media that we are extremely proud of the sunsets that occur every night over our campus! This is truly always a beautiful sight, that you need to see with your own eyes! For now though, this picture of last night's sunset should suffice!

Spring time snow!

With tomorrow being the first day of April, I know I thought we were finally done with the snow! However, that is not the case on Long Island! Waking up to a snow filled campus is extremely discouraging, but the Hofstra campus always looks so beautiful, even when it is covered in snow! A couple of Hofstra students felt inspired this morning to Instagram the snow, even though most of us are just trying to pretend it isn't real! 
Here are some of those pictures from this morning!
