New Panthers, New Dreams, Same Great Spirit: Welcome, Class of 2023

How exceptional are our incoming students for the year ahead? Before I share some personal stories, I think these numbers also tell a great tale:

13,000 The most applications in the history of Adelphi
3.59 The average high school GPA of our Class of 2023. These Panthers are highly qualified and very motivated.
25 The number of U.S. states represented by the Class of 2023. For a school once known as regional, it is clear Adelphi’s prestige is spreading.
400+ Transfer students who joined our Adelphi family this year 
850+ Our number of new graduate students attending Adelphi programs this Fall 2019 semester    
54% The number of first-year students who identify as diverse, making this class one of the most diverse in our 123-year history 

Every one of our students has a unique story. Here are some I’d like to personally share with you this month:

Please join me in welcoming all our new and returning Panthers to Adelphi!

All the best,

President Christine M. Riordan Signature
