Hofstra University is providing the Student Personal Web Page Service to foster communication, learning and scholarship at Hofstra University. Student Personal Web Pages are a means by which students can provide information about themselves, their interests, activities, coursework, and resources that are important to their college career. This is also the ideal way to make an online portfolio to assist in job interviews.
Unlike Hofstra University's official web site, Hofstra Online Pride, Hofstra does not supervise, edit, or review the materials contained within the web sites of individual students (see disclaimer). Students may post materials that are in conformance with the Judicial Code and other policies outlined under the Policies section of this site.
In an attempt to make creating and publishing Personal Pages as easy as possible, Hofstra has built this site based upon the Novell-enhanced Netscape Server, running on a Novell file server. The advantage of this server is that it provides drag-and-drop publishing from Hofstra computer labs, and ftp access from residence halls and from off campus. For more details see the "Your Personal Site" portion and click on the link, "Creating and Publishing Personal Pages."
Students need not apply for an account on this server. This service is provided automatically when the Pride Account is set up and is avaiable at any time you wish to create a homepage. Your URL will be http://www.pride.hofstra.edu/~username where "username" is your Pride username in the form jdoe1.
Hofstra University assumes no responsibility for the content of pages produced by its individual student members. All students must abide by the policies outlined in the Judicial Code and the Policies section of this site to maintain the opportunity to publish their Personal Pages to this site. Hofstra University does not supervise, edit, or review the materials contained within the web site of individual students, nor does it monitor the links to which these sites connect.
Hofstra will, however, begin an investigation of any reported violation of Hofstra Policies or pertinent Local, State or Federal law within one working day of the reported violation. Hofstra reserves the right to summarily suspend the web site privileges of any individual based upon such a report when a Federal, State, or Local law has been purportedly violated.
To report a violation please send e-mail to email@example.com
