Priya, India
MBA – Marketing

“As an international student, you are always worried about getting a job on-campus; with Adelphi it has been really nice. They are always giving you that extra help that you need – it’s not just always about your classes and studies. There are so many resources on campus.”

Vlad, Ukraine
MBA – Management of Information Systems

“For me, moving to the U.S. was like starting a new life. Everything was new, from the people and friends to the environment and classes. I gained a lot of experience and improved my English a lot, which is a good thing. Being in the U.S. you can meet a lot of people from different cultures. You can learn from them and learn how they run businesses in their countries.”

As an M.B.A. student, I decided to become a member of the finance society. In this group, we get to meet influential business leaders who come and give speeches and attend Adelphi events. We also got to visit the New York Stock Exchange, which helped me to experience Wall Street culture.

The universally warm reception I got throughout my time at Adelphi has made it easy to settle down and get used to my new school quickly. It is also the total opposite of home, especially in New York City. You are guaranteed to have a lot of really cool experiences here.

It was great when I got my job with the International Student Services department at Adelphi. My favorite part of the job is meeting new students because I know I can relate to them and help them transition to their new school.

M.S. – Sport Management

Adelphi creates a supportive environment for international students and it is easy to find ways to engage with the local community. This is a great chance to encounter new cultures and make a lot of new friends. This is the greatest educational experience that I have ever had!

My classes at Adelphi are helping me to analyze problems from different perspectives and view problems in a new light. I think I am learning how to tackle problems more critically and systematically, which is a skill that I can take with me for the rest of my life.

Ciara (Linghua), China

One of the main reasons I chose Adelphi is because of location. Adelphi University's location in Garden City is very peaceful and quiet, which helps us to keep our focus on studying. But, if you want to go to Manhattan and enjoy the business atmosphere or do something fun in the city, it is very convenient.

Shaun (Zhiyi), China

At Adelphi University, opportunities will come to you if you if you take the time to search them out. If you’re not doing well in a course, you can go to a professor and ask for help and they will guide you to the right way. They all are very understanding and won’t let you fail.

Usman, Pakistan

I would like to learn new skills, discover different perspectives, engage, and experience a new way of thinking. Coming to Adelphi has been a life-changing, world-altering experience for me and I hope to help fellow international students to acclimatize best to our programs and university through being an active member of the community.

Kajal, India

There are big differences between the educational system in America and what we have back home. Back at home, there is this gap between the student and the professors, but in the U.S you get more of a connection with your professors.

Sayo, Nigeria

I have received resume support and interview support, which were both very helpful as an international student. I was better prepared to answer the type of questions that U.S employers ask, and I think all of this support really helped me to get placed in my summer internships.

I became more familiar with Manhattan and the transportation system there. Working in a big city like New York, also gave me the chance to network with individuals of high influence.”
