Division II Sports – The students have almost no school spirit, and sports are not very popular on campus. You have to look online to see when sporting events are.

Not Very Good – The food on campus is repetitive and disgusting. The school has tried to improve the quality of their food, but students still get food-borne illnesses.

Guys & Girls:
The campus is 70% women, so if you're a female or gay male, it is slightly hard to meet a potential mate. The looks of the students are nothing special. I have made friends but have found it hard to relate to many people.

It's Been Okay – I have had some setbacks, but the university has given me an opportunity to grow as a person. That being said, if I were to do it all over again, I'd go elsewhere.

The campus has students of different economic and ethnic backgrounds, but because the campus is in Long Island, the typical Adelphi student is white and straight. Not many LGBTQ students on campus.

The general academics at Adelphi are just okay. Classes are easy and there are almost no challenges. That being said, the Honors College, which I am in, is top-quality and offers a rigorous education and a tight-knit academic community. It is frankly the reason I chose Adelphi.

While the nightlife on campus is terrible, there are several off-campus bars and clubs that students flock to, even though they are overpriced.

Very Supervised – Public safety and the administration treats students like they're kids. One major aspect is the dry campus atmosphere; the campus does not allow alcohol anywhere (even for 21+ students). Look elsewhere if you're looking for an environment where you can drink (at least if you're 21 or over).

Okay but Pricey – I have heard that Garden City is a fairly wealthy area. Thus, the housing there can be expensive.

Due to my academic and extracurricular merits, I was awarded a large amount of money in scholarships, so I didn't have to deal with the financial aid office. But I haven't heard good things about it.

You can have a social life at Adelphi if you're a non-Greek. But sororities and fraternities are everywhere and somewhat dominate the social scene. You might feel left out if you don't pledge or rush. The frats and sororities tend to cause the cliquey, high school-like environment on-campus.

Art History – I haven't had an internship opportunity yet, but I notice that the professors in the department are very helpful and care about their students' success. But the department is small.

Art and Art History – The majors are very small, so the programs are like a community. But the school needs to offer more classes in the department, especially those in art history.

Social Scene Lacking – The campus is predominantly a commuter school, which I find funny because many of the extracurriculars are at night, therefore not making them commuter-friendly

I usually don't have problems but sometimes it takes a while for paper to be installed again

Not Bad – I like the food but it does tend to get boring sometimes

Nothing Special – I haven't seen anything special in terms of guys yet.

Performing Arts – The Dance program at Adelphi is not the best. The teachers are biased toward white students. The quality of the professors is under par.

Health & Safety:
I feel very safe on the campus. The Campus Police tour the campus often.

The parties on campus are boring. I'd rather go to clubs off campus

Not Enough Vegetables – The Dining Hall provides an abundance of starches. Not enough vegetables and variety of salads. Too much of the same foods.

Very strict with enforcing rules about no drinking on the campus. Adelphi is a dry campus so there is not drinking allowed. I like the idea because it keeps the campus a safer place for students and staff.

Not Sure – I do not stay off campus, so I am unable to elaborate on this question.

Being in a Sorority – i love being part of a sorority. Girls stick together and become sisters in every true sister. We are motivated in assisting charities and each other.

It Was Difficult – it was hard dealing with financial aid when your middle class. You don't have money to pay but you don't qualify for loans either.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
