4 College Senior

Majors: I'm in Adelphi University,and it's tough to be in the Graphic Design program because it's small and the competition is tight. I went for an internship in Long Island, NY, and was able to get it!

3 College Senior

Majors: In order to get into Adelphi's Graphic Design program, I had to take Fine Art classes with all of my general education classes. At the end of my Sophomore year I had to submit my portfolio and I am 1 of the 16 students in this program. It is a lot of work, but I really enjoy it.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I'm in nursing and it is good but i slack off it cause me major issues.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The program i'm in is very strong. Just one C I was put into probation. It pushed me to work extremely hard and not play around with my education anymore

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek is very strong at Adelphi but some are very exclusive. Like You would have to some connection to any member in he organization.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a variety of spots to dine at off-campus.
Prices are very reasonable at most places.My favorite places to eat are Cherry Valley Deli and Grill, A&S Bagels, Chipotle, and Five Guys Burgers. You can find a place for any kind of occasion.

5 College Freshman

Computers: Adelphi University gives every student $25.00 free for printing each semester. Every black and white print or copy is $0.05 and color print or copy is $0.10. This allows almost all students with enough free prints for all classes. If more prints are needed, students are allowed to put more money onto their account for printing, although it is almost always unnecessary. For this reason, it is not necessary to have your own printer.

Diversity: if you are from a urban setting such as queens, brooklyn, hartford, boston, this school will be not be a good look. the social scene at adelphi sucks, unless you are in a clique, keep in mind you wont be in a clique because most of the people here went to high school together. its mostly rich white kids, and mostly females a good look for the few guys. and its mostly commuters so theres nothing to do unless you go to one of those dirty bars, like nachos and dizzys. man, as a urban kid i hate those bars, im use to the clubs and vibrant social scene, adelphi was the biggest regret of my life. ima freshman second semester.

Campus Dining: it depends on what u eat for the most part its bad

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Campus security enforces what you're paying for; ensuring a high quality education. If you're publicly drunk or high, you'll probably get a warning or something. They really aren't very strict unless you're a repeat offender. At that point, why would you waste your money on college anyway though?

4 College Junior

Athletics: Intramural sports are fun and fairly large in our school. The gym is open to students whenever you want to go. The basketball courts, racquetball courts and squash courts are always fun. Everything is well maintained.

5 College Junior

Facilities: Everything is incredibly clean and I believe it is one of the most beautiful campuses around. It is a small campus, but there is a lot to it.

4 College Junior

Facilities: The academic programs at Adelphi are very engaging. Most of the professors are willing to take the steps that help their students succeed. The social scene is great as long as you get involved with clubs, fraternities or sororities.

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Very friendly, safe, and has many places for food, delis, stores, nail salons ect.

4 College Junior

Majors: Adelphi has amazing majors. I can speak mostly on my personal major, Communication Science Disorders, Speech Pathology. It is very rich and I am learning a lot.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: Adelphi is unique because it is so close to the mall, i can pick up anything i need. another reason why Adelphi is great is because it is so close to the City. Its perfect for going out at night or for day trips its right by a train station.

4 College Junior

Transportation: Public transportation is located all around the Manhattan center campus.

3 College Junior

Facilities: Adelphi's internship programs are first rate. This is my first year at my internship and I am having a wonderful experience. The facilities they pick work to help students with building their expereince as social workers.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: For Manhattan Campus there is not a campus dining, besides a space by the vending machine that can only fit about 10 individuals at a time. The Manhattan center does need a cafeteria!!

3 College Junior

Facilities: The student life on Adelphi Univerisities Manhattan Campus is different from what you have on the main campus in Garden City. The staff and student are friendly; however it sometimes appears that the staff do not communicate with each other on certain aspects of your student program, such as advisors, financial aid. Overall, since attending Adelphi I have had an good experience. The professors are wonderful and want you to succeed.

4 Recent Alumnus

Computers: Sometimes the internet was down and the printers did not function well.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Campus is fairly diverse, but there is very little mingling between ethnic groups. When I first arrived, I found this both very odd and somewhat alarming. Despite the diversity, there is almost more racial and ethnic tension than if Adelphi had a narrower student body.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Overall, living on campus is very helpful. You live close to your classes, so you are almost never too far to go back and get something you may have forgotten. However, there are few social opportunities for residents, and the rooms themselves can easily feel like a hospital if they aren't very fully decorated. For a lot of people, their rooms are there solely to sleep, get dressed, and store personal belongings. For the amount of money we pay for them, we should want to spend more time here than we do.

Computers: In the computer labs, there are usually vacant seats, but the servers are very slow, and the printing can be very temperamental. In addition, wireless access in the dorms is nearly impossible without an ethernet connection, which a large number of smaller personal computers aren't even equipped with. This makes private studying very difficult.
