From Prince William and Kate Middleton to Eli Manning and Abby Mcgrew, many couples around the world can trace their love connection back to a college campus.

We are proud to celebrate the more than 1,000 alumni couples that found love at Adelphi. Some found love as students on campus, and some met — or discovered their love — later in life. But each couple shares a common experience of being an Adelphi Panther.

Are you an Adelphi couple?

We want to celebrate you and your spouse! Contact us at or submit a class note about your love story.

Your gifts count twice.

When you donate to the University, you and your spouse are counted towards our alumni participation goal.

Valentine’s Day: Post on social media.

We invite all of our AU couples to share their love stories and/or pictures on social media with the #AdelphiEverAfter hashtag.

Thinking they had made a connection, Steve mustered up the nerve to ask Lois to dance.
