From career counseling to conquering challenges, student support at Adelphi

Happy New Year!

With each new year (and decade) come ever-changing ways to embrace innovation and transformation. At Adelphi, we begin 2020 as relentlessly dedicated as ever to our students’ success—and we continue to pioneer new ways to provide exceptional student support.

Whether they are managing a challenging course or semester, looking for the perfect internship, preparing for their practicum or writing their doctoral dissertation, Adelphi students find the support they need. Our personalized approach to education begins with our dedicated faculty—Adelphi professors know their students’ names, and small classes highlight their academic needs and allow for individual attention. Early signs of academic struggle are met with guidance, counseling, advising and tutoring. Mentors across campus help nurture student ambition and provide guidance and opportunities to achieve their goals.

I’d like to share with you just a few of the remarkably thoughtful and effective approaches to student support here at Adelphi:

Sometimes a little pretest encouragement from a favorite professor is helpful, too. I thought you would enjoy seeing the message Dr. Wright wrote to his students on exam day last semester.

Be proud! You could be doing anything else...but you are here challenging yourself with this difficult physics exam.

I wish you a great start to your 2020!

All the best,

President Christine M. Riordan Signature

Christine M. Riordan, Ph.D.
