Student Reviews
  • I absolutely love Adelphi University. It was my first choice college, as well as my dream school for nursing. The campus is beautiful and the new NEXUS building is gorgeous. The class sizes are what really captured my attention. The number of students in the class is averaged around 30 students per professor.
  • Adelphi is a smaller school than many but what it lacks in size it more than makes up for in effort by both the staff and the student culture. Whether it be studies school life or extracurriculars you can always find someone to help you out or make things all the better.
  • I love my experience at Adelphi University so far. It's so easy to make friends from your classes or people that were in FCAP or people in your orientation group. Adelphi really makes sure that freshman have a variety of clubs to choose from and feel like a part of the college.
