5 College Freshman

Academics: THE COURSES OFFERED HERE ARE VERY RELATIVE TO MY CURRICULUM. VERY HAPPY WITHALL MUST COURSES.

3 College Freshman

Academics: We have a lot of different majors (you can just look at them on the adelphi website) and many of the professors still work or do research in their fields. For example, an anthropology professor here still travels all around the world to do research and two of the most amazing anatomy professors you'll have are chiropractors and have their own practice. The curriculum is different for each major but you'll probably take prerequisite classes for the first 2 years & then more specific classes concerning your major the last 2 years. The registration process is not complicated at all, but if you do need help, then you can go see your advisor (every student is assigned an advisor). Obviously Adelphi is a college, so you will have to work in order to get a good grade. However, it's not THAT hard. Just follow the syllabus and stay on top of your work in order to get an A.

4 College Freshman

Academics: As a nursing major, the program is challenging and teaches you a lot.

3 College Freshman

Academics: Overall average academics save for a few stand-out programs such as nursing.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Professors are, for the most part, well trained. They know their stuff. The registration process is iffy, the school is strict on how many credits you could take and if you want to go over, you MUST pay extra. It's difficult when you have a lot of classes (or are a double major), you'll be there for a summer or two or maybe another year.
