At Adelphi University, you’ll know you belong. Small classes, usually about 10 students, promise personalized attention from your professors. And you won’t feel lost in a crowd. Campus activities provide connections for our international college students and our larger student body. You can participate in a range of internships, community service and cultural events, on our beautiful campus in the village of Garden City, Long Island, as well as in the cultural capital of the world—New York City—just 23 miles away. And we’re here to help you every step of the way—from advising you on obtaining your student visa, improving your English and adjusting to life in the United States to preparing to meet (and exceed!) your career goals.
