Attending Adelphi University is like creating a new family. With open arms I was accepted in, finding friends with similar passions. I was able to not only learn more about the world, but I got the chance to learn more about myself. The professors I worked with consistently went out of their way to support their students not just in the classroom, but in any place needed. The warm feeling that crept through my chest every time I was able to walk into the Social Work department of Adelphi University is irreplaceable.
