HOFSTRA University

Hofstra ROTC History

Hofstra University was founded in 1935 as Long Island’s first coeducational and private non-affiliated Liberal Arts College. Hofstra University is located in Hempstead, Long Island, a large suburb East of New York City. The Task Force Havoc ROTC Battalion has been on campus since 1951. The battalion moved from the densely populated academic area located at Roosevelt Hall, which is on the south side of the campus near the Hofstra Law Library and Hofstra Deli, to the Physical Education Center, on the North West side of campus, in 2000. Classes for Freshmen and Sophomores are conducted on Thursdays from 2:20 to 3:45 pm. Classes for Juniors and Seniors are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:20 to 3:45 pm. Leadership Lab for all Cadets is held on once a week, usually on Thursday from 4:15 to 6:15 pm. Some Leadership Labs are on Saturday morning. Physical training is conducted three times a week, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, from 6:30 to 7:30 am.
