Student & Graduate Reviews

4.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

The programs and teachers at this school are amazing. Most classes are generally small, allowing more teacher to student contact, especially if you need help with a subject in class. The dorms and the school's grounds are gorgeous too, and there is a large variety of places to go in and around campus to stave off boredom.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2008

College was a wonderful experience for me. Honestly, I learned my most valuable life lessons from college. They were lessons not taught in the classroom, though.
4.8 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

Adelphi is an excellent school. The staff is very supportive and provide resources needed in order for you to be successful while completing your academic studies. The classes are small and intimate,which is great, so you can receive the one on one if needed. Unlike city universities, where you can sometimes feel like just a number.
4.4 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 1986

My college offered a lot of cultural diversity to it's students. It has been around for many years. The campus is impeccably clean which allowed me to have great comfort and peace of mind as I put forth my efforts with my studies. It offers a vast curriculum for the students that ultimately afforded us the opportunity to have challenging careers in the fields of our choices which for me was Social Work. The Social Work program prepared me to work with people of all kinds. My schooling prepared me to be the great Humanitarian that I am today. It taught me the core values that are important to have when it comes to serving people. It prepared me to see humanity from a lens of being a vessel that people need inĀ order to assist them with meshing their lives back together again. Not only did I obtain my undergraduate degree there I obtained my Masters degree as well. In reading the newsletters years later of the ongoing accomplishments of those that have graduated from my school evidence shows that the production of growing scholars is enormous. We are doing great things for the betterment of mankind. As a result of the education the community at large is receiving a much better continuity of care all across the board.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2003

Adelphi University is known for its school of Social Work, and I might say that it does live up to its reputation. I received a stellar education at Adelphi and was hired by the agency that I interned for through the school. The field placement assignments are well organized and excellent in providing instruction in social work practice.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

The program offered very few networking opportunities. I feel the program would grow substantially if more guest speakers were brought in to allow for students to network and learn about different career paths in public health. Also, collaboration with other programs on campus, such as the business program may also be beneficial when discussing topics such as healthcare finance. Also the program was brand new when I attended, and was still making a lot of adjustments. I feel that with the time the program will improve.

Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2017

Adelphi University boasts a large and beautiful campus, all of the facilities are well taken care of both by student body and the faculty. The competitiveness of the programs is fair and the quality of support and education is truly reflective of what to be expected in the workforce. That being said, the graduate programs are pricey. My graduate program in particular costs as much as an Ivy league college. There was a tuition hike and the student body was not informed of it until halfway through the semester, thus causing many disgruntled students. The transportation is not ideal, the Long Island Railroad runs near the campus and the University supplies a shuttle service from the railroad stop on to campus. Keep in mind that the Long Island Railroad is again, pricey but a fast and reliable service. Most people drive because parking is free on campus but often difficult to find depending on the time of day your courses are.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

The only con about my graduate program is the overall cost of tuition. It is a private institution and it is extremely hard to afford.
