Adelphi takes great pride in the long-standing tradition it shares with generations of families who consider themselves Adelphi Panthers.

Legacy families are students and alumni whose family, including parents, grandparents and/or siblings, attended or currently attend Adelphi University. The Legacy Family Program recognizes families for their continued generational support and commitment to Adelphi. Family connections have long been a part of the success of Adelphi University and its students and it is through our alumni families that the heritage of the University passes from generation to generation.

Featured Story

Piccirillo-Tudisco Family

The Piccirillo-Tudisco family legacy at Adelphi University is an extended group of family members who have attended Adelphi since the 1980’s. There are 16 family members who have attended Adelphi over the decades. Teresa Piccirillo-Tudisco attended Adelphi starting in 1989, graduating with her BS in Education ‘93 and MS ‘97. Teresa originally decided to go to Adelphi because her older brother Angelo Piccirillo was already attending Adelphi and was having a fantastic experience. During Teresa’s time at Adelphi she made wonderful friendships and had amazing professors and classes. Adelphi and the Education Department solidified her desire to become an early childhood educator. Adelphi made her transition from student to teacher smooth and effortless and provided her with many opportunities for career success.
