I have spent time in a number of different places. The culture, food and art of Italy are what I remember the most.
Tell us about your experience with international students:
I find international students to be the most interesting group to work with in higher education. This is because the learning is reciprocal; as we work to teach our students, I am also getting an education from them.
How would you describe the benefits of Adelphi International in your own words?
AUI provides our international population not only the opportunity to grow as students, but as members of the Adelphi University community too. This is because we spend a great deal of time providing meaningful engagements throughout the semester that help to broaden the students vision of campus life.

I enjoy orientation very much. This is because I am thrilled to share with our students their first moments at Adelphi University.
