Sally Bruhim - 12/20/2019
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2007
"Adelphi University is unique in its location and on campus atmosphere. It is situated in a location that is close to many of the local eateries and highways. If you have a car or use public transportation it is very easy to get around when looking for something to do off campus. The campus is beautiful and always changing due to the arts programs that display student and professors creation around the grounds and in the buildings. The staff and faculty at any department that I had experience with, were always helpful and kind. The classes are small, which makes it more intimate. Professors knew me by name and were able to make recommendations based on their personal experience with me as a student. They are always willing to help and make time to work with students outside of classroom hours."

"I attended Adelphi University for my bachelor's degree. The campus is beautiful and serene. The faculty and staff in the Psychology department were kind and helpful. Classes were taught by educated professors that cared about their students. Classroom size were small compared to other universities, which was what I really liked about the school."

"The professors go above and beyond and continue to support you post-graduation. I learned a lot about the field, grew so much in my undergraduate career, and my experiences while attending helped push me in the right direction on my career path. The classes offered and great and will definitely push you while learning as much as possible."

Degree: Physical Education

"Throughout my time spent at Adelphi I truly enjoyed my program. In regards to my education itself I feel I am fully prepared for the career I am seeking. The amount of support I had when I was enrolled in my university was amazing. However my thoughts and feelings of Adelphi all changed post graduation. I have had NO guidence getting certified as a teacher beyond the exams. I have had NO one reach out to me regarding my next steps in life. This university does not care about you post graduation."

Degree: Music
Graduation Year: 2014
"I grew up with the dreams of being a performer on Broadway. I loved to act and dance, but most importantly I loved to sing. I chose to go to this university merely because it was the best financial option for me, not because it was well known for their theater arts program. I was accepted into their music program and they knew that I was interested in pursuing musical theater upon graduation. Unfortunately, the university did not have any vocal coaches that focused on musical theater repertoire, just classical music. This was something I wasn't interested in pursuing, but I dealt with it. I then wanted to audition for the upcoming musical (since there is no musical theater program, they only have a musical production once every 4 years). However, because I was not a theater major, I was not allowed to audition for the musical which was a major disappointment. I then met with both my music adviser as well as my vocal coach to see if any of them had any connections in the musical theater world or could help me find auditions both locally and in Manhattan for summer stock shows or shows during the semester and they had absolutely no idea where to start. I was puzzled, surely I was not the only student who ever wanted to pursue musical theater. This particular program I was in, was a major factor into why I wanted to graduate as soon as possible. Aside from the program, the school itself was rather enjoyable. They have a lot of programming and events held throughout the year where students can truly find a place where they fit in. I was fortunate and found my place in an internationally-recognized sorority. I loved being able to fund raise for a philanthropy I felt so strongly about, while getting to educate other members of the Adelphi community on this philanthropy as well."

"My experience at Adelphi University was certainly full of life-changing experiences. From my classes, to work experience, to extracurriculars, I learned a lot about the person that I was and who I wanted to be.Ill start with talking about my classes. I was an International Studies major with a focus on Political Science and Spanish, and part of the Levermore Global Scholars Program. My professors were all wonderful. I learned from intelligent and motivated individuals who were all still practicing in their field of study. I had experiential learning opportunities, like participating in the International Model UN program in NYC. While I didnt take advantage of them in school, there were a number of academic supports on campus. In regards to work, I held a part-time job in the admissions office all four years of college, which led to my working there full-time right after graduation. Both in my undergraduate experience and post-grad, I learned how to advocate for myself and seek opportunities. The Office of Admissions was open to creating the first undergraduate Intern program during my senior year, building a multicultural recruitment arm during my first year as a full-time employee, and seeking new areas for recruitment. There was a lot to learn around the inner workings of a university, which were challenging when they did not fully align with my beliefs, especially for someone like me who worked hard and fought for students rights and advocacy. While this was difficult, it was a learning experience. This leads me to the next topic- extracurriculars! Adelphi has a ton of student activities to get involved in that help to provide tremendous leadership skills. This is where I really started to exercise using my voice and where I really developed my passion around supporting underrepresented and marginalized peoples. As I mentioned, I was a very vocal student on campus, especially as one of few students of color. I would want future students to know that even though you may have these experiences, you do have a voice on this campus, and there are faculty and staff that are there to support you along the way. Lastly, I have to mention that during my four years at Adelphi, I met my friends of a lifetime, and could not imagine life any other way. For all of this, I am incredibly grateful to the university."

"This program was pretty good. I went to the satellite location so I really can't speak about the campus. It was quite expensive."

"Adelphi is a fairly small school which gives students an opportunity to not only make long lasting connections with peers an fellow classmates but also receive attentive one on one help from professors. Adelphi offers many amazing opportunities for all students and is dedicated to making sure their students have a wonderful experience and are well equipped for the work force upon graduation."
