College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: i know nothing about off-campus housing

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: nothing unique in the area

4 College Freshman

Administration: pretty normal compared to other colleges.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: financial aid service is very nice and helps you with anything needed

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Not much to do around the campus area

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It could be better but nothing serious to complain about

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I always feel safe on campus and in the town. When you start going to a few towns over it gets iffy. On Adelphi property it is super safe.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The acting program is awesome. I wouldn't want to be in any other acting program. The teachers are great the students are great and I'm learning a lot!

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love my department so much! The acting department is amazing and if you are going to be an acting student you NEED to consider this school. With that said I'm not a fan of the school in general. If I was not majoring in acting I would be at a much bigger school, with better food, and that I loved a lot more. I refuse to leave thought because the acting education they are giving me here is amazing. I've been acting all my life I got into schools all over but here is where I personally think the most amazing acting program is.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm in the acting department and in the acting department they are very good with networking and try to help you get a job. I am not sure about the rest of campus but I think the school does have a good reputation for employment after college.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am not the type of person to be apart of greek life, but the greek like at Adelphi is great. All the fraternities and sororities really stick together and you always see them around campus. If you want to be part of greek life it is really easy to do so! The only downside is that greek life do not have their own houses.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The people that like athletics get really into it and love every second of it. There are also people that do not care at all and that is ok too! I have friends on sports teams here, but our school does not have much school spirit. The teams are really respected but not many people support the games to cheer on our teams.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The school does not have off campus housing. We are partly a commuter school so you can live off campus and commute, the school just is not going to be part of your housing at all. You will have to find it yourself and pay for it yourself.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus dining is great. Garden City has amazing restaurants and if you don't want to spend a lot of money there is always Panera, Chipotle, Taco Bell, and Chinese food. You can pretty much find anything around here within a 20 minute by car radius.

2 College Freshman

Administration: I have had very bad experiences with our school transportation. I am a freshman so I have to park my car off campus due to a new building being built and parking space being limited. It is about a ten minute walk from campus which is not bad at all if it is not cold outside. Since it is now winter I want to take the shuttle to and from my car especially at night and the shuttle is never anywhere. Tracking down the shuttle for the Garden City Pool parking lot is the hardest thing ever. I have had to call public safety multiple times because I will wait for 20 minutes and it wont show up. It is super aggravating especially if I need to get somewhere like work. They finally made an app to track the shuttle and it does not work at all. I am thoroughly annoyed at the shuttle system here.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The scholarships here are alright. A lot of my friends going here had trouble with money because the school does not give you a lot. I was fine because I am in the theater program and they gave me an extra talent scholarship.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Adelphi is a small campus and we are also a dry campus. We have no greek life houses so if you want to party you need to either know someone in the area that is having a party at their house, go to a Hofstra party, or go out to the clubs/bars. The clubs and bars are alright. The best one is Spa, although it is the most expensive it is totally worth it. It really depends on the group you get in what your partying scene will be like. For example I'm a theater kid and we have tons of fun and try to have parties a lot. Sometimes there are parties at the baseball or basketball houses but I heard they are a little ratchet. To party at Adelphi either make friends with the upperclassmen, or have a lot of money to go out.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food here is terrible. It's only my second semester and sometimes I gag just thinking about how I have to go eat at the UC or Post. Post is the worst, but we also called the UC the Yuck. Lackman catering should not be a business. Sometimes the food is rotten or makes you sick. The quality is terrible and the people serving you food cannot even get that right. I'm 18 and I have worked at two different restaurants the fact that the man at the wrap station has no idea how to make a wrap is absurd. Honestly prepare to have extra money set aside for food because you will either be ordering out or finding someone with a car to take you to a restaurant off campus. For half a semester I lived on frozen food dinners because they were better than the food Lackman makes for us here.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Housing at Adelphi all depends on what residence hall you are living in. Some are a lot better than others. I live in Waldo its spacious, clean and close to my classes. I've heard from a friend who lives in Linen that there are worms in the shower. So as long as you pick a good residence hall you are set!

College Freshman

Greek Life: Not in Greek Life, yet but am still feeling indifferent about it.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: If there's one department that needs to get their brain's working, it's the financial department. Their mistakes have caused student's A LOT of money.

Party Scene: No idea. Parties are either at sleazy bars or within greek life.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: Raw food? check. Bacteria? check. Food poisoning? check. There is variety, but most of the places are just disgusting. I feel safe bringing food.

Off-Campus Dining: I commute so I don't go often, but I could see the problem with barely any variety, if you dorm. It's just, pizza, chinese, dunkin, cheap fast meals.
