Dear Colleagues,
During final exams, we’re all busy using up those last few Panther bucks from spring meal plans and ironing Commencement gowns. And now, the Adelphi community is gearing up for an exciting summer—one that we’d love for you and your students to be part of!
From Summer Pre-College and specialized classes to sports camps and test-prep sessions, we’re offering a little bit of something for everyone this summer. While your kids enjoy chess camp and tech camps, you can spend time using our pool and fitness center, visiting nearby beaches, or shopping and dining along Garden City’s Seventh Street—just around the corner from campus.
Whatever you choose, Adelphi wants you to make our campus your second home this summer!
Like many of you, I am prepping for our Commencement ceremonies this Friday and have been arranging for the summer plans that will soon follow. As your students proudly walk across your graduation stage, know that we share in their (and your) excitement as one chapter ends and another begins. And when the hats have been tossed and the music quiets down, we hope you’ll be thinking about the next exciting moments ahead of you—including the summer possibilities at Adelphi University.
We hope to see you on campus!
Best,
Kristen Capezza, M.B.A. ’12
Associate Vice President, Enrollment Management
