4 College Junior

Local Area: I can go around any corner and find what I need, a store, food, bar.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: My school has a great everything, student center, library, performing arts program but its just not up there with some other bigger universities. I love the small campus! sometimes I wish I were surrounded by more motivated performers.

4 Recent Alumnus

Administration: Zero tolerance for on campus drinking and drug use.

4 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: Not many house parties but the bar scene is cheap and fun!

5 College Junior

Administration: Public safety does not play, have your ids on you make sure your parking decal is in the right place and is updates and do not affiliate with the wrong crowd.Disobeying housing rules will get you into to trouble the r.a's are nice but lenient only to an extent. Over all its a safe and its a great place to study and be productive.

4 College Junior

Academics: Some of the classes are more serious and some are not on a whole I felt that my first semester there adequately prepared me for what I was to face further in my college years.The freshman seminar class need to be re-worked they should create something like that and they should make it more major specific the second semester.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: The public safety office on campus does their job, you can go for a mid-nite walk and you will feel secure because the public safety trucks can be spotted circling around campus. The people that work there are friendly and can answer question about shuttle bus schedule's the officers in the booth even help you out if your car batteries needs a jump start.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: the kitchen does not have dishes but over all it is great. The R.A's are phenomenal and the dorms are in once central location, they are also not far from anything on campus, everything is just about ten minutes away even the furthest thing.

Campus Food: It's alright, you don't have that much variety. I wish they had a Starbucks or dunkin donuts on campus. I used to buy wraps, but every time I ate them I got a stomache.

4 College Junior

Majors: I am close to finishing my first year of internship and getting ready to start another year in the fall. MSW students are required to complete 600 unpaid internship hours for 2 years prior to graduating.
I think the internship is really what you make of it. If you take it upon yourself to have responsibilities and try to learn, then you will. I had a little difficulty finding one at first because I live in NJ and being a NY based school, Adelphi has more connections with NY offices. However, once I found one I was able to dive in right away, learning about policies and procedures and then starting to do the actual work of a school social worker.

4 College Junior

Majors: I didn't have any difficulties or challenges getting into my program. I just submitted the required information and I got in. What I did like and really the reason that I applied to and now attend Adelphi is that they don't really have an application deadline. I submitted my application around the end of May and I was accepted in time for the fall semester. Also, the class scheduling is very flexible. Except for last summer, I have taken all my classes on Saturdays which has been extremely helpful to me since I work and live in NJ but go to school in NY.

4 College Junior

Majors: I'm getting my Masters in Social Work at Adelphi University's Manhattan Campus and I'd say it's a mixed bag. I've had some outstanding professors and some not so good ones but I feel like I've definitely learned something in all of my classes. The program is a work in progress so there are some things that need improvement, however, the staff and directors are really open to feedback and encourage self-advocacy.

Parking: Depending on the day of the week, parking can be a nightmare if you arrive at the same time as everyone else. There are certain days and times when parking is a breeze.

1 College Senior

Administration: The school has strict policies about drinking on campus. It is best to go out if you want to drink.

3 College Senior

Weather: The campus is very pretty. It is NY so it is chilly in the winter and very warm in the summer. Luckily the campus is not huge so you will survive the walk from building to building.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life is very big at Adelphi. I love all of the people I have met that are a part of a sorority or fraternity at Adelphi!

Transportation: The shuttle is mostly reliable. There were very few times when it didn't run on time. The schedule is generous with plenty of buses available.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Adelphi University financial aid process is very typical. They use the same guidelines as everyone else.

4 College Freshman

Weather: When it's hot it's beautiful! When it's muggy/humid, it's sticky!

4 College Junior

Majors: I had to set up a date to audition with other current dancers at the school. I took the ballet and modern class with the level three dancers and then I performed my two minute solo for some of the dance professors. I had to bring with me a resume, head shot, and body shots. After my solo the dance professors talked to me for a minute about why I wanted to attend Adelphi and why I loved dance. A week or so later I received my acceptance letter with a scholarship for dance.

Academics: The Dance department is unique because all of the professors have performed professionally with at least one company and many have come from different countries like France, Germany, Columbia, and Canada. As a dancer I have ballet and modern technique classes for 15 hours a week with an added 5 hours of pointe and partnering classes. All dancers must take a dance history, dance anatomy, dance composition I and II. If you are selected by faculty for shows after an audition, then you rehears an average of three to six hours a week. You can also choreograph your own dance piece for the end of semester workshop and perform in the workshop.

Academics: All the professors are available to help you outside of class either in person or email. The work load is usually reasonable per class. Some classes you may have to write more papers others have online assignments that have to be submitted by a certain time. I am a dance major so most of my work load is studying dance by going to watch a dance show, reviewing dance performances in a two to three page paper or studying anatomy.

Transportation: Adelphi is very convenient for transportation by the LIRR, but quite expensive.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: There are a few bars in the general area of Adelphi, but you will have to take a cab to get there and that can get expensive. I think the bars are always crowded too and they're just a bunch of people acting trashy. If you aren't a big partier, this whole scene gets old really quickly. There are some house parties in the area, but nothing too crazy as far as I know

5 College Freshman

Majors: The Majors here, always have in internship for people that tends to their major over the summer. So it's very easy to apply on campus and off campus as well. My roommate and I have an internship at another college for $900, so Adelphi is always helping us one way or another.
