Adelphi University - Comments and Student Experiences |
Ironically, you need a car to really do anything if you live on campus, but there is nothing resembling GOOD PARKING. There are too few spaces, and the spaces that are there are too small. YOU have to make your own parking, which you stand to be ticketed for, (and I have been.) Of course, there is available parking, but it is available a half a mile away, at the Garden City Pool. You have to be shuttled to and from the school by bus, after leaving your car, and your car must be out of the parking lot by 8:30, or you must walk the 1/2 mile to a mile to your car. This is ridiculous, when you consider the recent ten inches of snow that have just hit Long Island. The idea of walking in the half mile of snow is not appealing with all of your books on your back.
One further problem that needs to be addressed is the misinformation given by the school. Despite being told as freshman that you achieve the FULL school experience when you double major, you are given the impression that upon graduation, you recieve two degrees. I have just discovered, that due to a lack of communication with the deans and departmental advisors, you do not actually become aware of the fact that you will not recieve a double degree. You have to pick 1 degree, and then receive a "general equivalency" transcript in the other major.On a positive note, the campus asthetically is very pleasing, and the grounds are beautiful. The new dorm addition is outstanding, although the other dorms stand in need of improvment. Faculty are generally friendly, if not always available, and students are what you make of them. You can always find friends, you just have to look past the obvious cliques that exist.
