Discover Adelphi University (NY)

September 2018
Summer has passed us by in the blink of an eye and, here at Adelphi, it was far from quiet—from athletics camps to residence hall renovations to an exciting Pre-College program that welcomed 100 of your finest students from coast to coast. And on a personal level, my husband and I spent our summer preparing for our own family’s expansion as our first little one will arrive in November!
As our family expands, I cannot help but think of the Adelphi family’s growth over the past three years—our total enrollment has grown by more than 13 percent, with rapidly expanding national interest.
This August, following record applications of nearly 13,000 first-year students and 3,000 transfer students, we welcomed the largest and most diverse first-year class in Adelphi’s history, in addition to more than 470 transfer students across 50-plus programs of study. The students featured an average GPA of 3.52, earning, on average, more than $21,500 in merit scholarships and grants.
Among these students, we have:
  • A Junior ROTC lieutenant
  • A professional motivational speaker
  • A mission-trip extraordinaire, completing more than five mission trips to places including Louisiana
  • A student fluent in more than four languages
  • An accomplished actress known for her work on the big screen
…and more!
With students coming from around the world and across the country, Adelphi’s community is rich with stories and personality—an inclusive community that our students are bound to thrive in, given our attention to personal enrichment and support.
As the school year gets underway, please stay in touch! We can’t wait to meet you and your communities as we travel to your hometowns and work to find the best match for Adelphi and for your students. Our doors—and inboxes—are always open and we look forward to the year ahead.
