    Posted: 27 July 2007 at 5:19pm

so im going to hofstra in the fall and everyone says that 1 out of 2 students has an std. but then we found out from the wellness center (aid station) this:

hofstra is located in the town of hempstead, which includes numerous towns within it, and my university offers free testing to anyone within these towns. so when they make they're report and say 6000 out of 13000 students has an std, its really 6000 out of everyone in the town of hempstead, however many it may be

my question is, should they make a seperate poll of students who have an std and another for non-students? i think they should but they dont due to a privacy act, which i dont understand. it just says that A student had an std, it doesnt say so and so ID #00001 had an std.

thoughts?

The fact that it is an issue at all should throw up warning signs.

Only end up in a situation where a disease could potentially be trasmitted with someone you know/care about, and always use protection.

Haha, Hofstra, my sister graduated from there last year. She said not only is there alot of std's but she said that scientists or whoever found a new strand, the "Hofstra STD." Then again that's just what she's told me. Good luck and wrap it up!

Are you sure they don't ask people a simple "are you a student at Hofstra" yes/no, when they come to get tested? I mean 1 out of 2 students is a pretty bold claim to make, you'd think they would make sure it was right.

Yes they should have 2 polls, because some people would be amazed/disgusted by those figures.

They should probably ask if you have gone to hofstra on those questionaires the Red Cross gives out before you can donate blood. Right along the lines of visiting Africa and stuff.

...why on God's green earth would you want to go to Hofstra?

 

Also where on LI are you from? We were asking for a town,... the exits can take you to many towns be more specific... I probably live around 10 minutes from you... if you go south (Sayville FTW).

Wearing 2 is a bad idea, friction between them increases the likelyhood of tearing.
