4 College Sophomore

Academics: Academics at Adelphi are good but I feel as though there is not enough sections of classes offered and so many students end up in classes that they aren't too thrilled about being in. Registration process sucks most people are locked out almost immediately and are scrambling to find alternate classes. Work load is bearable, but being lazy is not an option if you want an A. Professors work with you which is great and are very understanding.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Has a great class availability, work overload is manageable , registration process is very easy and fast !

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The places around campus are mostly fast foods and some quick stop stores with junk food. The dining halls at the campus are mostly filled with many healthy choices and others that everyone could choose something from.

College Senior

Campus Housing: Personally, I was not financially stable to live on campus. I have never been inside of the dorms but I have heard that the dorm life is fun and it is a great way to meet people.

Health & Safety: Adelphi's campus is very secure and safe. I like the fact that campus security sends out a mass email whenever there is a problem on campus or just to send out safety tips. Campus security is always monitoring the area and checking out any suspicious activity. When I am on campus, their presence gives me a piece of mind that nothing out of the ordinary will occur.

Local Atmosphere: Adelphi University is located in a residential area that has a little town area which is a great getaway between classes. There are great eateries around the area along with a shopping mall a few minutes away. The neighborhood is filled with friendly individuals that always look out for each others safety. The school is located right by the Long Island Railroad which provides easy transportation to further out in long island or the city.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The Campus does not seem to be too strict. Public safety has caught a couple of students drinking and drunk on campus. You just have to hold your composure and don't act up in the open and be quiet. If you make too much noise public safety maybe called.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: The athletic center is average, but there are not alot of weight machines. The gym is usually packed especially when the track team trains,( all the treadmills are packed). The gym is clean mostly accept of the one time there was Staph infection. The library is nice and you can almost get lost there. Not too sure about campus events, but there is something ALWAYS going on, you just have to ge involved.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: You can easily walk on the campus any day and see a spattering of diversity on campus. There are white, asians and a couple of african americans walking around. There are seventy percent female and thirty percent male and it really shows. There are alot of gay males on campus.

2 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The school is basically thrown in a neighborhood of mansions, so if your looking for a campus where you can easily walk off and find something to do this school is not it. The LIRR trainstop is not too far of a walk, so access to NYC isnt that much of a hassle .

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: I really cannot say. I think it appears to be fair. I never had a problem. I can say this. When I left my purse at a local diner, I left my school id card in my purse. The owner of the diner called campus security, and they called me at home within minutes. I was so relieved.

Transportation: Public transportation is good as long as you can get a class schedule with the same schedule as the bus and campus shuttle.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Most of the people at the school appeared to be focus with a balance of getting their work done and having a social life. There is a mix of the traditional students from high school and upper classmen. There is a lot of interest in the community, politics, and student involvement.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is fun for people who are not already involved in a sports team. I am not in Greek life but they always are doing so many great activities and people have make their closest friends from being involved.

5 College Junior

Academics: There are so many job opportunities and internships that adelphi helps students with. We are on long island and close to ny city where there is so much opportunity . Adelphi academics are awesome and they are known for their teaching , nursing and business majors.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: The food off campus is really good.. Garden city has so many food places to go to. There are so many places to go around adelphi the city is just a train ride away.. The food places.. Getting ur nails or hair done.. And there are a variety of places to get jobs as well.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: The food offered on campus isn't great, but it isn't terrible. After a while, it seems like the same thing over and over. Most students have many meals left over at the end of the semester. Mean plans don't roll over into the next semester, so some students may waste it on junk or get food for friends.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: It was a smooth and easy process. I have no complaints at all.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: they are always ready and prepared for whatever events and games that they have coming up.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: everything is a little farther then walking distance.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: barely any drugs being used at adelphi university.

4 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: Opportunity to pursue any major in a small, closely knit environment

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: Requirements provide a variety of subjects that address Political Science from different perspectives--for example, international relations, comparative politics, and research, methods and design. Requirements are not as challenging as the higher level electives, though.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: Not every professor is as enthusiastic about their subject as others.
