3 College Freshman

Athletics: I never attended athletic games at Adelphi because they usually occurred later which is not convenient if you are commuting by train and the most popular sports, such as lacrosse are sports I am not interested in.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I never really had the chance to travel around off-campus because I took the train and did not have a car. This is just based on hearsay.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Due to not staying on campus due to commuting to Brooklyn, it's hard to give a fair analysis of safety officers.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: Financial aid did cover some of the cost, but I felt I was more than qualified for a specific scholarship offered by Adelphi but I was not granted it. Because of the cost it forced me to take a semester off and try to figure out a way to pay the debt.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is okay but even if you just want something to drink and a candy bar, it can be costly.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Hard to find, and very expensive, but the area is safe and the options are nice.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Conpared to the Lackmann food on campus, eat out whenever you can. It's so much better. Your stomach will thank you.

3 College Junior

Administration: People are just doing their best for the well being of the students.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: I'm not a partier, so I wouldn't be the best person to ask. I've heard it's kinda average though.

2 College Junior

Campus Food: Be very careful, especially at Post. The food isnt always cooked fully, and many people have gotten sick.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: It depends on where you live. More often than not, people just stay in their rooms with the doors shut, so it's hard to meet people except for events.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I chose my school for the amount of money i was supposed to get in my scholarship package but that's not what i received.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I enjoy going to Adelphi

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It's near impossible to find a place in the area, and they are very expensive.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I'm not a big sports fan but we have a few good teams.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: Garden City is beautiful and the campus is not far from the city.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love living on campus, there's not too many housing options as the university is a mostly commuter school but all of the dorms are very close to classes.

1 College Freshman

Campus Food: There's not too many options (especially for a vegetarian like me) and the quality is subpar.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Long Islands is one of the most expensive places to live on. The safety is top notch, but Garden City is a very suburban place and pricey. Hempstead is a more dangerous, I wouldn't recommend living there.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Since I live around the area, I know the good and the bad places outside of campus.

4 College Freshman

Administration: For orientation they basically dedicated a whole day just about the policies and drug and alcohol abuse, which was a bit boring but very important.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The process went smoothly. This school does help a lot with financial aid. It is one of the cheapest private schools on long island. But it is still a bit expensive and a little bit of a hassle to pay.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Everyone goes to the hempstead bars. The bars usually make up Hofstra and Adelphi students, so you get to meet new people. But some of them are made of of freshman and sophomore students and other bars are made up of older students, so be careful.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I recommend the deli because you basically make it your way. I have never been to the grilled cheese place, but the only thing i have heard is how good it is. and the lady is very nice.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus, but I commute there. The commute isn't that bad and they have a lot of programs that make you feel at home at Adelphi. Since 70% of the student body commute, its like normal and a new way to bond with people and make friends.
