I feel like Adelphi University is too local.Quite BrightNursing
I feel like Adelphi University is too local. Majority of students are from long island, and consequently, commuters. This makes school quite empty during weekends and breaks. There is barely a school spirit. But it all depend on who you hang out with- there are super friendly/nice/caring people, too. Since the school is not big, you can talk to faculties/staff pretty easily. No need to rush--you could go anywhere on campus in 5 minutes! You have more time for yourself.

I am a student here at Adelphi forQuite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
I am a student here at Adelphi for so long. I switched my majors a couple times but now that I have finally found one fitting for me I am still so disappointed with Adelphi. No one that works as advisors or faculty is on the same page. Everyone gives their own opinions. I have been misinformed for the past 3 semesters as to which classes I have yet to take to finally get out of here. Majority of the professors can not teach. Many of them are rude. Most of them do not care about the student, so much for smaller classes and more attention. I have made about 3 close friends in my 6 years of being in this dump. I literally am a percentage in the student body, not a person. The school scams you for money. There is ALWAYS an issue with financial aid. I HATE THIS PLACE. I wish I had made a transfer ages ago.
