  • I am researching this school and have not visited the campus

    Try scheduling a visit to the college before making any final judgement. During the school year would probably be the best time because there are professors and students that you can ask questions to, and can get a general overview of the mood and setting of the school.

    Currently I am going into my junior year and here is what I have l learned during my two years at Adelphi. Firstly, this is the kind of school where you really have to push yourself in order to be active on campus, the majority of students commute and arent active on campus which can make the university seem pretty dull so I definitely recommend reaching out to different groups during freshman year. Secondly, the teachers are hit and miss, like any other school just don't forget that your paying for your education so don't be afraid to email your teachers or come to them during office hours, they are there for you so take advantage of it and lastly regarding financial services, it's pretty useless. Dont take simple answers from them,make sure that you are getting the most accurate information by calling, emailing and going to visit them. I hope you found this information useful and good luck!!

    Although you would think that having a social life is essential, you also need to stay focus on school. You can have both social and great grades, just learn to manage the two. JOIN CLUBS!

  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    always do research on everything you can before hand. even though it is crazy to think about your future before senior year, it is a better way to get a head start. because i am the first one to attend a university in my family, my parents or relatives didn't exactly know what to do or where to ask help. so, i had look up and find all the bits of information i could on my own. it takes more than a day to find everything and not everything is on google. my best advice is talk to a teacher, your guidance counselor, or someone you know who has a great knowledge on college and the transition process.

    Make sure you always have your eye on your financial aid. The financial aid office will not tell you when your financial aid package changes. Remember that the estimated cost of attendance sheet they send you in the fall is basically useless. Go online to the site they provide to you, called, and look at your financial aid yourself when calculating your loan. Keep your GPA up, it'll make things alot easier. and look for jobs on campus. There are friends to make everywhere, and don't be afraid of making friends with upperclassmen. Remember you are not limited because you're a freshman, you can do anything that an upperclassman can do. And remember to use as many of your 17 credits as possible! also, try to get into the honors college or levermore global scholars. you'll definitely get a leg up if you get into one of these programs.
