Students did not hold back this year when it came to their mortar boards and commencement footwear. From bedazzled and LEGO-styled caps to trendy heels and sneakers, the class of 2016 stepped into the world – in style. Students shared their graduation caps using #HofGrad16, and members of the Hofstra community were encouraged to vote for their favorite among the four finalists pictured above. First place went to Kristen Leigh Klein (bottom right), and second place went to Russell Vogel (bottom left). Both graduates won a pair of tickets to Hofstra Alumni’s GOLD Summer Networking Party in June.
