I'm super anxious too. In terms of living, i'm not to crazy about going back to dormlife and i'll be livid if i get stuck with a double. But, the question is, do you really want to have to worry about food shopping, cleaning, bills, etc. when ur in school? And, do you want to worry about living in hempstead or commuting? I'll answer for you, no you do not. But it all comes down to what's more important to you. By the way, did you know that the hofstra campus can be considered an aboretum? Apprently they've extensively invested in various flora. Go figure.
