isn't anything special as a school overall, but it's good.
The facilities are mostly either renovated or new so there's
nothing too bad. I commute (like most people there) but
I hear that some of dorm halls aren't updated. There
isn't air conditioning in dorm halls like Eddy and Linen,
so that can't be good.
I was close-minded about looking
into other schools and made Adelphi my one and only
choice, which was a terrible decision on my part. The
#1 part of college is education of course, but another
part of it is about the social life. I didn't
expect Adelphi to be such a commuter heavy school. People
come, they get their classes done, and go home. I
try to stay and find things to do, but there
isn't enough people around to do anything. People were friendly
during orientation and the first week, but that's disappeared since
then. Everyone has their group of friends, including myself, but
no one wants to expand and be sociable with other
people. I feel I try to, but I get nothing
in conversation with others or they don't look to talk.
I'm one of many people who feel this way.
already have to transfer next year for financial purposes, but
I won't be disappointed about leaving to say the least.
If you get a full scholarship and don't plan on
spending much time at Adelphi other than classes, then go
for it. If you expect a decent social life there,
you're expecting too much.
