          • Testimony
            1976-1980, BA, Communication, Business

            I loved Adelphi-it's where I had my first on-air experience at WBAU. The professors are very helpful; years later, one of my professors helped me get a job at NYU. I highly recommend Adelphi.

          • Testimony
            1978-1980, BSSW

            Adelphi's School of Social Work was an excellent personal and educational experience. Though I chose to go into law, the understanding and study of people through the "lens" of social work has been extremely useful in my career.

          • Testimony
            1977-1981, Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA)

            For most of my time at Adelphi University, I lived on campus, which was an experience in and of itself. However, I was blessed to major in theater, and I can't imagine a greater collegiate performing arts department than the one I attended from 1977 to 1981. I feel confident that today's students are receiving the same high quality of training as we lucky students experienced back then.
