Although commonly mistaken as an STD, Hofstra Red is a shortened version of "Hofstra Red Tape" something 99% of students encounter. The Hofstra Red (Tape) refers to the fact that Hofstra University is a large beaurocracy seemingly intent on making your life more difficult and making it impossible to graduate in 4 years. Be it payment of tuition or transfer of credits, you have a high chance of catching "The Red" if you ever talk to anyone in Admissions.
