    Adelphi, as with all private institutions, is expensive. Yet, they can be VERY generous towards accomplished students. Do decent on your SATs, do some community service, and they can be very good to you with scholarships. They will go out of their way to get high ranking students.

    The education you receive its amazing for the money but financial aid could do a little more to help out the ones that barely understand the system.

    Honestly, for the tuition, Adelphi really does make it worth it. From the events that are put on throughout the semester, to the resources that we are offered as students, Adelphi really does do its best to accommodate its students and make sure they're as happy as they can be. I know from the small class sizes, and the amazing Career Center, I know Adelphi has the resources to make sure I succeed in my career. Hey, I even went to the Career Center just to ask a question about our internship program, and I walked out contacting Newsday for an internship possibility.
