Pretty strict on drug and alcohol policies, especially in the residence halls. Campus police are always patrolling, they patrol the residence hall every couple hours, and there are lots of cameras all around campus. Parties are not a possibility in dorms. They are also really strict in visitation. For overnight guests you have to fill out a form two days in advance, you can only get into your own residence hall and have to be signed in to any other one you want to visit.

The nursing program here is very well known. It is a 4 year program in order to become and RN. A lot of hospitals will take an adelphi students when compared with students from other local colleges. If you recieve a C or below in a course for the program you will be dropped. They have a building dedicated to this program and are going to build a new one. You begin clincals in your junior year.

I attended Adelphi University for the Nursing Program. The college is well known for this program and dedicates a lot to it. They have a building that recreates patients rooms. They are building a new nursing building. If you get a C or below in a nursing course you are dropped from the program. The proffesors here are very helpful and seem to care about thier students. Class sizes are around 30 students.

Drinking is probably the most popular, although this is a dry campus except for two places w/ alcohol licenses. The people who do drink, however, get caught most of the time. The next-biggest thing is weed. They get caught too. Nice try.

Health & Safety:
Adelphi public safety is the s***. SOOOOOOOO safe here.
I have NEVER experienced any major crime or offense, ever. I'm a graduating senior. My dad is a police officer and he feels totally and completely comfortable with me here, which is a lot to say.

I haven't gotten an internship through the school, but the Center for Career Development, at Adelphi University, provides MANY opportunities to get internships. Adelphi's career center is HUGE on scholarships. Their biggest initiative is the summer Community Fellows program. You apply for an internship with a company in the non-profit sector, through Adelphi University - your application and everything goes through our career center. You put your top choices for internships and they try to place you where you want to be, but you list in order of want for a reason: they'll do the best they can. I've rarely known someone to get something that they didn't want. It's a 9-5 job, 4-5 days per week. The placements are in NY - on the island and in the city. What's great about this is that the placements are not restricted to LI - so, if you are an out-of-state student with proximity to manhattan (like me), you can still do it. It's one of those things that I wish I had done. Oh, and you get paid. You get a large stiped - Adelphi pays you for interning in the non-profit sector. The non-profits are really making out on you cause they're getting a free intern. You're getting paid by Adelphi, though. I THINK the stipend is $3,000 for the summer, which gets divided into pay periods throughout the summer. If you are a CSD major, you get to be in the clinic as an undergraduate student (which is kind of like an internship). It's a course that you take, for credit, but you run a group session with 2 graduate students. You do all of the work...seriously (more or less dependant on what group you have - I was in Teen Talk and the two graduate students and I did everything and the supervisor just oversaw everything, gave comments and suggested, and was there as a learning tool and resource). You are the one providing the treatment to this group that you are assigned to (based on your availability, not necessarily preference - I was in a teen pragmatic language group and I don't, particularly, want to work with the teen population of developmental disabilities...but it was, hands down, one of the BEST experiences of my life). You're not getting paid for this. It's for credit...so, really, you're paying to do it. It's so rewarding, though. Not many undergraduate programs do that. You write all of the session plans and the session results. You write treatment plans and progress reports for 1-2 clients, depending on the size of the group, and have a conference with the child's caregiver towards the end of the semester.

Absolutely no social life on the weekends. A complete ghost town. The college has a lot of cliques, feels like high school. The advisors are very unhelpful and they are no where to be found when you make an appointment with them. A very depressing campus.
College Junior 2013-02-04T19:49:32Z
Professors are strict about attendance, it can really affect your grade
College Junior 2013-02-04T19:46:24Z
Not many variations in academic courses, class seats are limited, not a lot of research available.
College Sophomore 2013-01-31T17:47:45Z
There are a lot of off campus dining options to look at. On campus dining for me isn't the best. The food is repetitive so it gets boring and tasteless after a while.
College Sophomore 2013-01-31T17:44:23Z
What sets the school apart from other schools is that it's very "friend oriented." A lot of people here are in groups so I'm hoping others could find who they connect with. Adelphi is also very small so it's fairly easy to navigate around.
College Sophomore 2013-01-31T17:39:43Z
The library is very resourceful. Other places such as the UC are also very popular on campus. It's a small campus but utilized well.
College Sophomore 2013-01-28T17:41:26Z
This school is very expensive and it makes me doubt I will be able to afford it if I continue my education here. I love this school but unfourtunatly the cost is a major issue to my family and I. I believe I deserve much more financial aid because my family is struggling to afford it and I would love to stay here for my next three years.

I think it's really important to get involved in greek life at Adelphi. I think it is the best way to get involved and meet new friends. All the girls and boys in greek life are very friendly.
College Sophomore 2013-01-28T17:35:58Z
We have a small campus so if it is raining out it's really not a far walk. Otherwise when it's sunny out, the campus is beautiful and the walk to class is enjoyable.
College Junior 2013-01-27T23:16:49Z
There are a lot of Nursing students, and it's nice to have our own little community.
College Junior 2013-01-27T23:12:45Z
It's good if you're going for Nursing or business. Other then that, there's no real reason to go here
College Junior 2013-01-26T19:01:01Z
Adelphi has a perfect balance between leniency and strictness. I feel feel very safe at my school and never tend to have huge problems with the ways things are orchestrated.
College Junior 2013-01-26T18:58:08Z
The drug scene at Adelphi doesn't exist. Policy is really strict, and most students abide by it.
College Junior 2013-01-22T05:31:07Z
I love being in Adelphis nursing program, I am always being challenged. It is not an easy A school or program, you work your butt off for everything but that just makes it so much more satisfying when you accomplish everything! I do not like many of the advisers, they tend to mislead the students, but unfortunately that is at any private college, as long as you keep track of what you need you'll be fine.
College Junior 2013-01-22T05:27:23Z
The girls lacrosse team is amazing, and over all Adelphi has a lot of really great sport teams.
College Junior 2013-01-22T05:26:21Z
Adelphi is very expensive but it is one of the schools that actually gives alot back. THey have commuter appreciation week which is where they give out free hot chocolate and discounted events. THey also give out free umbrellas in the bad weather. Adelphi also sells discounted movie tickets to any student as well as discounted tickets to professional sports games with transportation. Adelphi also has a really nice gym. My favorite part of the campus is how homey it is, there is art work made by students all over the campus. They offer so many clubs and organizations you cant help but get involved.
College Junior 2013-01-22T05:19:52Z
Adelphi always has stuff going on you just have to get up and do it. They offer amazing discounts to the students, to various profession sport events and broadway plays, where they also provide transportation to. They also sell discount movie tickets to any student and have Commuter Appreciation Week where they hand out free hot chocolate and such. They hand out free umbrellas if it is raining or snowing which is also a plus! They also have showings for major tv shows such as presidential debates and are always having interesting speeches and singers/bands come to the school. The only down side is that the library opens at 8am which stinks if you have to print something out before your 8am class! Also they do not have a wide variety of GOOD food choices, they slacked in that area! They also have commuter lounges with couches and tv's for commuters to go in between classes. Their library is huge and although the biggest part is noisy sometimes there are plenty of secluded spots to study!

Garden City is really pretty, but I think it can be kind of boring. If you live on campus and don't have a car, you're kind of stuck there all the time. They have shuttles that take you to the mall, Target, and Stop & Shop, but you can only do that so many times before it gets boring. Going into the city can be fun, but you don't want to use all your money on train tickets, so it's hard to do that very often.
College Sophomore 2013-01-20T22:30:06Z
I'm a communications major and I've really liked it so far. I think it's really easy. It's really annoying however, because I have a journalism concentration in the program, but I am still required to take classes that have to do with film and moving image because those are the general requirements for the program. However, I do like this field.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
