A rare strand of the herpes simplex virus found only within the area of Hofstra University on Long Island.
I was so scared to tell my girlfriend that I got the Hofstra Red after only one week of college. Boy was I happy when it turned out to be jock itch.

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.
Student 1: How's registering for next semester going?
Student 2: I had to sleep with the Dean of Admissions
Student 1: At least that will clear up your Hofstra Red
