Hofstra has a great athletic training program, and with 10 major pro sports teams (Rangers, Islanders, Devils, Mets, Yankees, Jets, Giants, Knicks, Nets, and Red Bulls) as well as several mid-level pro teams (Arena League NY Dragons, WNBA NY Liberty, Major League Lacrosse Long Island Lizards and National Lacrosse League NY Titans) and numerous minor league baseball and basketball and D-League soccer teams (Brooklyn Cyclones (Mets affiliate), Staten Island Yankees (Yankees affiliate), and Long Island Ducks, among others) all in the vicinity- with the Jets actually located on the Hofstra campus, and the Islanders, Dragons, Lizards, and Titans all playing literally across the street- finding internships and jobs is slightly easier than in some other areas. Los Angeles is the only other city I can think of that comes close in the number of pro teams, but then again, there's no football there, which is where there are a LOT of internships and positions.
As far as music goes, I'm not too familiar with the program, but word on the street is that there are a few small music companies that have offices in New York City, which is half an hour from Hofstra's campus.
Hope that helps. If you have any questions about either of the programs, just shoot me an email- [email protected]
