Sophomore Jaclyn Cifuni heard a knock on her dorm room door one Saturday afternoon. Cifuni was lying in bed in Nassau/Suffolk and chatting with her roommate. They did not answer the door. Hofstra maintenance workers let themselves into Cifuni’s dorm room and said that they had to check something in the room, even though she did not recall any problems in her suite. Cifuni described the two-minute visit as “really awkward.”
