Discover Adelphi University (NY): Summer 2018

Volume 5 | January 2018
Discover Adelphi this summer! World-class academics with a personal approach. [Adelphi University New York logo]
How did you spend your summers while in school? 
I think back to my summers and I remember fun-filled vacations with family, relaxing trips to beautiful Long Island beaches and escaping the summer heat in the air-conditioned Broadway theaters in nearby New York City (my special mother-daughter memories!). 
But there was a summer experience that stuck out to me as one of a kind: a career explorations camp at a university in Rhode Island.
It was my first time away from home. My first time on a college campus. And my first time truly diving into an academic area that interested me. The result? I walked away energized and confident for my studies in college.
As sophomore and junior meetings begin, or as students are ready to begin the transfer process, consider how they’ll spend their summer months. 
Are they ready for a hands-on academic experience near the excitement of New York City? 
Our community offers an incredible array of summer courses and programs for every type of student. Read on for an inside glimpse of summer at Adelphi.
It’s never too early to start thinking summer!

Prior to this role, she served as a residence hall director at the University and was a student teacher for high school sophomores and juniors in the Bronx and on Long Island.
Her favorite thing about Adelphi is the commitment to student learning in and outside of the classroom.

See you this summer!
Adelphi’s Summer Pre-College program is an exciting way for high school students to get a taste of college life while earning college credit. But, more importantly, it can be an unforgettable experience that leads to a fulfilling, lifelong career.

Spotlight on Two Amazing Pre-College Experiences
Photo of Evan Leider
My experience in Adelphi’s pre-college program helped shape the direction I’ve taken for the past four years. It was an eye-opener when I learned that many others in my area were just as invested in game development as me. When I returned to my senior year in high school, I chose to pursue my degree at Adelphi. Since then I’ve had many opportunities to really share, learn and get creative with others, and it has been an experience like no other!
Evan Leider took the pre-college Video Game Programming course in summer 2013 with Lee Stemkoski, Ph.D., professor of mathematics and computer science. He worked as a teaching assistant for the 2015 and 2016 summer programs, and has co-authored a textbook with Dr. Stemkoski that is used for both our pre-college program and our Video Game Design course. He’s currently a senior majoring in computer and management information systems with a minor in video game design.

Doing the pre-college nursing program at Adelphi really showed me how wonderful Adelphi is! I learned not only about their nursing program—in a classroom and through trips to local hospitals—but I learned about the campus, about friendships, about time management, but above all else, I realized how much I truly wanted to be a nurse.
Sophia Muratore attended the pre-college Introduction to Nursing course in summer 2016 and is currently enrolled as a first-year nursing student at Adelphi. She credits one person in particular for inspiring her to pursue nursing: Irene Auteri Ferguson ’79, coordinator of special projects for the College of Nursing and Public Health, who, she says, “was super-attentive to everyone. She showed me that there are many different types of nurses, and hearing her nursing experiences made me even more determined to become a nurse.” 
Thinking About Taking a Summer Class?
Adelphi offers open enrollment in summer courses to anyone interested in taking one of our college classes, including high school students, transfer students, visiting students, teachers, family, friends and more.

Georgia Tech Early Action Results

Earlier today, we released Early Action admission decisions. Made up of innovators and influencers, the accepted students range from being dancers to pilots, from entrepreneurs to environmentalists, from bee keepers to app developers. In their families, on their teams, and in their communities and schools, they have built, worked, played, changed, supported, and initiated.

These students will Create the Next at Georgia Tech and beyond. When we look at the Class of 2022, we’re excited about the character, background, insights, passion, and the dynamic personalities they will add to our campus.

Early Action Decision Breakdown
Admitted: 26% (46% in Georgia, 19% outside of Georgia)
Deferred: 22%
Denied: 48%
Other: 4%

Admitted Profile
Mid-50% SAT: 1390-1530

While we celebrate the accomplishments, character, dynamics, and potential of this admitted group, I am also very cognizant that in your schools and communities there are phenomenal students we are unable to admit or who have been deferred from this round.

To help you explain our holistic admission review process to your students and their families, we write a weekly admission blog centered around helping students and families navigate the admission experience in a more healthy, broad way.

In addition to our first-year class, Georgia Tech is also proud to enroll over 1,000 transfer students each year. We provide a number of unique transfer pathways designed to help students ultimately earn a Tech degree.

Thank you, as always, for your support and partnership. If you have any questions regarding our review process, feel free to reach out to our admission staff.

Health & Biomedical Sciences Summer Camp for HS Students

I would like to alert you to a valuable academic opportunity that may be of interest to students: the Health and Biomedical Sciences Summer Camp, which will be held at Lebanon Valley College from June 24-29 and July 22-27, 2018.

The goal of the Health and Biomedical Sciences Summer Camp is to provide a window into the scientific basis of human health.  Through lectures and hands-on laboratory investigations in state-of-the-art laboratories, students will be introduced to the fundamentals of molecular biology, pharmacology, immunology, biochemistry and medical ethics.  Students will learn how laboratory science can be translated into improved human health, and they will engage ininvestigative experiences that will allow them to apply their laboratory skills to real life problems.  In addition, students will interact with practicing professionals in fields such as medicine, physical therapy, toxicology, genetic counseling and biomedical laboratory research. The Health and Biomedical Sciences camp will provide a fun, challenging and engaging college environment in which students will develop a deeper understanding of what it means to be a biomedical scientist and health professional.
