Join us as we look back at our history, honor all we have accomplished and share our vision for tomorrow. We’re building tomorrow together.

Adelphi University 125 year: Building Tomorrow Together

Throughout this year, we’ll hold events that showcase the stories and the people that have made Adelphi what it is today—a university with students from 42 states and 61 countries, and more than 118,000 alumni—and how we’re looking to tomorrow. From 57 students in 1896 to the largest number of first-year applications in our history—more than 15,800—Adelphi has always looked to tomorrow. Jump in and join our yearlong party. Everyone’s invited.

Watch and share our 125th celebration video, Building Tomorrow Together. Our history isn’t what happened long ago. It’s a story of how we’ve grown stronger through the years.
