Adelphi's social work masters program is as averageAverageSocial Work
Adelphi's social work masters program is as average as any other social work program. nothing moore and nothing less. i give it a b-. there is no support for students in the doctoral program. the professors are very busy writing journal articles. you can't choose your professors, you are stuck with the one professor that the department chooses to teach your class. the comp exam is subjective and not really anonymous as promoted. you have to spend money from outside sources to help you complete your dissertation.

The school is pretty and very safe.Not so brightCommunications
The school is pretty and very safe. I live on campus and there is nothing to do on the weekends here no events and almost all the students leave. The dorms are very strict about having guests over too. I would not recomment the college to anyone who wanted to meet new people and have fun. Plus they have 2 small eating places that are open very limited times and no football or basketball teams. really boring place . Safe and pretty though

It's a wonderfully small school.Not so bright
It's a wonderfully small school. The professors are really helpful, the students are friendly, however most of them do not care about actual schoolwork, while a good handful do.

I regret transferring from this school. Going here was one of the best decisions I've ever made, and I want to go back now. At Adelphi, you are a PERSON, an individual who can impact the university greatly through your work. At any other large state school, you are simply a number, another tuition check. The quiet, interactive environment at Adelphi REALLY is it's greatest quality. The food is generally inadequate, the buildings are not so attractive, but otherwise, the actual environment at the school is really conducive to both a healthy mindset and academic success. I do not regret going to this school at all. My GPA was fantastic and I made true friends.
