Junior Profile: David Zago

Major: English Education

Year: Junior

Why did you choose to come to Hofstra?
I was told by a friend of mine that the education department was a great program to be a part of since I want to teach.

Why did you choose your major?
I have always had a passion for reading, so I figured why not pass on my passion to future generations.

Plans after graduation?
After graduation I want to teach for a while and then go back to school and obtain my masters and possibly higher.

How do you balance the social and academic aspects of college?
I am not sure how I am able to balance my social and academic life. It’s challenging, but it takes practice. But I would recommend investing in a calendar.

A class at Hofstra that you would recommend anyone to take?
I am not sure if I can recommend a class at Hofstra, only because being an English Education major, I feel like no one besides English majors would enjoy my enthusiasm for an English class.

Favorite professor at Hofstra?
It is only my first full year here, so I feel as though I haven’t experienced enough teachers to say I have a favorite, but so far every professor that I have encountered has been pretty amazing.
