Here are the top six reasons students choose Adelphi:

Strong Career and Pre-Professional Training

Many students take advantage of the University’s numerous study-abroad opportunities — everywhere from Costa Rica to Guatemala to Australia — and hands-on research opportunities. Students find internship and job opportunities through Adelphi’s powerful, engaged global alumni network that’s 115,000 strong.
