3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: the food on this campus is good, but like any campus the students do become tried of it.. we have alot of options to choose from, so cant get that tried of it.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: Very Pleasant Staff – What really makes a difference in the academics is the professor's who are there to help guide you through each course. I found them to be very reasonable and able to be worked with. It makes a difference knowing that your not up against tough and rude teachers

Local Atmosphere: first off the people are just F***king not cool, all the people basically leave for the weekend and most of them live around here. that leads to this, the party aspect of adelphi is like a car with no wheels its toally useless and the people that do party have been friends since they were like in high school. academics i well above normal for me. food sucks! literally i live off my own grocery and im paying 4000 or more grand a yr for food. the social part, the people here do not talk to you at all. i was at university of Connecticut for 6 weeks and i was cool with everyone, i came to adelphi and people give u that look in the hallways. with that im going back to the university of connecticut to finish college, i expect a better social life and the same academic. with that if you want to a small non social boring, ghost town, bad food university where the school work is great and you dont wanna have fun come here.

Majors: Nursing Major. I am a nursing major and really enjoy the program so far. very challenging and you learn a ton.

3 College Senior

Parking: Not Enough Spots – If you dont arrive at school prior to 8:30 am, it will take a long time to find a spot or you wont find one at all.

4 College Senior

Majors: Art History/ Honors College – I changed majors several times before settling on art history. I don't regret choosing art history. I find the program is a bit small, but the professors are very helpful and I have learned so much.

Regarding the Honors College, I have nothing bad to say about it. It will definitely help me get far in the future.

Local Atmosphere: Garden City Vs. NYC – The campus is on Long Island, which is okay. But there's LIRR station right next to Adelphi which provides students access to New York City. That being said, it is a bit of a trek to get to NYC.

2 College Senior

Athletics: Division II Sports – The students have almost no school spirit, and sports are not very popular on campus. You have to look online to see when sporting events are.

2 College Senior

Campus Dining: Not Very Good – The food on campus is repetitive and disgusting. The school has tried to improve the quality of their food, but students still get food-borne illnesses.

2 College Senior

Guys & Girls: The campus is 70% women, so if you're a female or gay male, it is slightly hard to meet a potential mate. The looks of the students are nothing special. I have made friends but have found it hard to relate to many people.

Overall Experience: It's Been Okay – I have had some setbacks, but the university has given me an opportunity to grow as a person. That being said, if I were to do it all over again, I'd go elsewhere.

3 College Senior

Diversity: The campus has students of different economic and ethnic backgrounds, but because the campus is in Long Island, the typical Adelphi student is white and straight. Not many LGBTQ students on campus.

3 College Senior

Academics: The general academics at Adelphi are just okay. Classes are easy and there are almost no challenges. That being said, the Honors College, which I am in, is top-quality and offers a rigorous education and a tight-knit academic community. It is frankly the reason I chose Adelphi.

2 College Senior

Nightlife: While the nightlife on campus is terrible, there are several off-campus bars and clubs that students flock to, even though they are overpriced.

1 College Senior

Campus Strictness: Very Supervised – Public safety and the administration treats students like they're kids. One major aspect is the dry campus atmosphere; the campus does not allow alcohol anywhere (even for 21+ students). Look elsewhere if you're looking for an environment where you can drink (at least if you're 21 or over).

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Okay but Pricey – I have heard that Garden City is a fairly wealthy area. Thus, the housing there can be expensive.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: Due to my academic and extracurricular merits, I was awarded a large amount of money in scholarships, so I didn't have to deal with the financial aid office. But I haven't heard good things about it.

Greek Life: You can have a social life at Adelphi if you're a non-Greek. But sororities and fraternities are everywhere and somewhat dominate the social scene. You might feel left out if you don't pledge or rush. The frats and sororities tend to cause the cliquey, high school-like environment on-campus.

3 College Senior

Majors: Art History – I haven't had an internship opportunity yet, but I notice that the professors in the department are very helpful and care about their students' success. But the department is small.

3 College Senior

Majors: Art and Art History – The majors are very small, so the programs are like a community. But the school needs to offer more classes in the department, especially those in art history.

2 College Senior

Facilities: Social Scene Lacking – The campus is predominantly a commuter school, which I find funny because many of the extracurriculars are at night, therefore not making them commuter-friendly

Computers: I usually don't have problems but sometimes it takes a while for paper to be installed again

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: Not Bad – I like the food but it does tend to get boring sometimes

2 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Nothing Special – I haven't seen anything special in terms of guys yet.

2 College Senior

Majors: Performing Arts – The Dance program at Adelphi is not the best. The teachers are biased toward white students. The quality of the professors is under par.
