Choose Adelphi University (NY)

Choose Adelphi
World-class academics with a personal approach
April 2019
A very special greeting to you all! This is my first letter to you after returning to Adelphi from maternity leave—my husband and I welcomed our beautiful baby girl, Gianna, in November.
Over the last several months, we’ve begun the process of learning to be parents, enjoying every minute of watching our daughter grow and thrive. While my days are filled with diapers, baby giggles, and snuggles, I can’t help but wonder what her future holds, where she will go and who she will grow to be.
College is a transformative experience with the power to open doors and uncover hidden paths for students. Our community here at Adelphi places great emphasis on our role in preparing students for their future and delivering added value to their investment in an education—making sure that our students are career-ready and equipped with the tools for success. Recognized as a 2018–2019 College of Distinction for our Office of Career and Professional Development, Adelphi provides students with a personalized education that fully prepares them to excel in their chosen fields.
From the view out my Adelphi office window, I’m often reminded of the endless possibilities for my daughter—her ability to become anything and anyone that she wishes to be. And while I’ll be wishing the time to slow down as she grows into a strong and intelligent woman, I’ll take great comfort in knowing that places like Adelphi University will be waiting, eager and ready to help her achieve her greatest potential.
All my best,
Kristen E. Capezza, M.B.A. ’12

Rap Legend Chuck D Returns to His Alma Mater
Chuck D ’84, ’13 (Hon.), the rap legend known before his chart-topping days as Carlton D. Ridenhour, returned to his alma mater, Adelphi University, on April 15 to discuss his experience as a B.F.A. student at Adelphi, his music career, his critically acclaimed books and his political activism. Chuck D sums it up best: “Everybody feels, everybody wants to express themselves. But you have to learn from somebody. I learned at Adelphi. I came into the school with talent, but I left knowing how to express myself—in art and music.”

Case Western Reserve University: “Pi in the sky”

Case Western Reserve University

Engineering for the common good

Case Western Reserve University students are hungry to solve pressing problems. And our ecosystem of innovation aims to satisfy.

Today, a group of clever students launch an app that will change the shape of late-night cravings as we know them.

The app is called “π  in the Sky.”

Tired of waiting for pizza deliveries to their campus apartment, this trio—who study computer science, engineering and entrepreneurship—baked the perfect solution: an app that a) recognizes where you are on campus, b) asks what you want on your pie, c) sends a direct order to our pizza ATM, and d) delivers it to you in record time via the group’s drone, affectionately named Pi.

No more foolin’ around with those clunky restaurant apps or trendy ride-share delivery services. This puts all the control in your hands. Well, in Pi’s hands.

How clever are you?

Georgia Tech: Admissions Update

April 1, 2019
For Immediate Release

Georgia Tech is extremely excited to announce the placement of our newest team member.

This professional’s flexibility and accommodating nature are renown, but complicated Human Resource policies previously prevented official hire. This year we threw budget and the org chart out the window.

Due to unlimited capacity, we will not be assigning a particular geographic region, which means ALL prospective students and applicants’ benefit:

  • If you have a student this spring or summer who wants to simply show up to campus for an information session, tour, or visit program that has been full for weeks…
  • If a student comes to you panicking because they missed an application deadline or neglected to send test scores on time…
  • If a family is complaining because their financial aid package does not include a full ride scholarship…

They now have no reason for concern!

Now you can simply tell your students to invoke this name and they can avoid appeal processes, additional questions, and pesky documentation.

Presenting your students’ biggest advocate….

Southwestern University


Southwestern Students are Achieving Amazing Things  

Alexis Dimanche ’20 is an international student who is finding his home on the tennis team, as a recipient of several King Creativity Grants, the treasurer of his fraternity and a member of Southwestern’s Student Foundation.

Laura Rativa ’20 has been recognized as a 2019 Newman Civic Fellow.

Southwestern University (SU) has given a small group of students control of a portion of the University’s endowment through the Financial Analyst Program. These undergraduates are tasked with managing approximately $600,000.

Even SU parents understand the importance of the experiential learning students are exposed to on a daily basis. Dr. Eyal Porat P’21 coordinated a summer internship program for SU students to study cardiovascular medicine at UTHealth.

Southwestern University Joins the Coalition for College

SU is proud to join partner institutions across the U.S., in being committed to making college a reality for all high school students, by joining the Coalition for College. The application will be an option along with three other applications for incoming students in the class of 2020 and beyond.

Establishing the Jack and Camille Garey School of Natural Sciences

Southwestern University has opened a new school, the Jack and Camille Garey School of Natural Sciences, to help continue to foster students interest and scholarship in the Natural Sciences. The Garey school will join the Brown College of Arts and Sciences and the Fayez Sarofim School of Fine Arts. The new school comprises the natural sciences and consists of five academic departments—Biology, Chemistry and Biochemistry, Kinesiology, Mathematics and Computer Science, and Physics. The new school was made possible by a gift from Life Trustee Jack Garey, the largest, single private gift in its 178-year history.

Civic Engagement at SU 
Southwestern University earned the designation of a “Voter-Friendly Campus” from the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators (NASPA)–Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education and Fair Election Center’s Campus Vote Project (CVP).
