Beautiful campus



Adelphi lacks in some areas but makes up in others. As far as academics, my professors have been great, and I love the content in my courses. The campus is really nice in the fall and springtime. Adelphi does lack in social events, but everyone finds a friend group that works for them. Garden City is really quiet, but it's a short car ride from Queens, and just a 40-minute train ride into downtown NYC. There are city trips to Broadway, professional sports, and more for less than $10 each.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The school has gotten some bad feedback in recent years about issues with the food and racial injustices around campus. For the food situation, Adelphi wasn't using separate fryers for meat and vegetarian fried foods. This issue has been fixed, and Adelphi has made a point to try to offer more vegetarian options. As for racism, Adelphi is in the middle of Long Island, in a very conservative village. The majority of students are white, as well as faculty. Representation around campus was sparse, and Adelphi seemed to be advertising their diversity without actually reflecting it. When they hired a new Provost, they chose a white man over a Black woman that students were advocating for.



The community is nice and most of the classes and professors are manageable.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Some bathrooms are gross, and food options are that great or with much variety for different diets. Most of the advisors aren’t helpful either.
