Could there be a better location for a college campus than ours?
Nestled in beautiful suburban Garden City, New York, Adelphi’s home is in the heart of Long Island. Shops, banks, and restaurants are within walking distance, and legendary beaches, museums, entertainment venues, and premiere shopping destinations are a short car-ride away. A short-walk and 45 minute train ride will bring you into New York City, the financial and cultural center of the world.
Campus Facilities & Equipment
While you’re changing and growing, we are, too. That’s because we’re building your future even as we’re building ours.
The new Performing Arts Center, opening in May, 2008, will showcase our prestigious programs in acting, design/technical theatre, music, and dance together under one roof. The new Center will feature a 500-seat music performance hall, dance recital rooms, music practice rooms, temperature-controlled instrument storage rooms, and a Black Box theatre.
Opening in April, 2008, the Recreation and Sports Center will become the new home of Adelphi’s successful athletics programs. The Center’s three story, three court gym, which converts into a 2,200 seat arena for basketball games and other events, will accommodate recreational and intercollegiate athletes and health and physical education students, and can host NCAA tournaments and championships.
Other recent and planned additions to the Adelphi campus include:
A new Alice Brown Early Learning Center, a learning lab for students in education, psychology, and healthcare programs, which will provide age appropriate classrooms plus indoor and outdoor space for children ages one and a half to five.
A new residence hall, scheduled to open in 2009. Our newest residence hall will join our six current halls that are home to more than 1,200 students.
The new Adele and Herbert J. Klapper Center for Fine Arts, dedicated in November 2007, features ceramics, sculpture, printmaking, and painting studios, and exhibition space.
Our students take full advantage of the benefits of our location and learning outside the classroom is truly a part of the Adelphi experience, in formal internships, field placements, and clinical training as well as the informal interaction of our students with the riches of Long Island and metropolitan New York.
In virtually every major, Adelphi students have access to world-class resources—museums, theaters and galleries, healthcare and research facilities, corporate headquarters, and government facilities on Long Island and New York City.
Student Organizations & Activities
Take part in or watch your classmates in our thriving cultural arts programs, including plays, art exhibits, concerts, and lectures. Attend a sporting event with friends, or check out the comprehensive sports and fitness services available, including intramural athletics and group classes in pilates and yoga. With more than 80 student organizations, including community service, academic, cultural, and religious clubs, student-run media, seven Greek-letter social sororities and fraternities, and 20 academic honor societies, there’s something for everyone.
Adelphi is a school that provides flexibility and diversity, but even more important: accessibility. Many students commute to school, but the on-campus community is outgoing and welcoming. The size of the student body allows for many leadership opportunities on campus as well as more personalized attention from faculty and staff. One freshman states, “It had a great community feeling, [making] the transition to college easy.” Another student adds, “There are opportunities available to every student no matter where they came from”. Most students join a minimum of one club or organization on top of their classes, “obtaining a good balance of labor and leisure.” There is a place for everyone to feel connected to the school. .” Commuters and on-campus students appreciate the flexibility in scheduling and the ease of getting around, both on and off-campus. An incoming student tells us, “From the moment I arrived at the Nassau Blvd. train station and stepped foot on the bus until the moment I got back on the train, I felt like I was part of the family. Everyone is very personable here, and it is clear that students and faculty connect and make lifelong friendships. But friendliness is only the beginning! The campus is gorgeously landscaped and designed with nature in mind. Its proximity to NYC provides students with so many opportunities as well.” While many feel the campus becomes deserted on the weekends, most appreciate the proximity to NYC for shopping, entertainment, and sporting events, and take advantage of public transportation to experience all that the city has to offer.
