“I consider Adelphi a second home."
The Beth Tenser ’91 Resident Student Award
The Beth Tenser ’91 Men’s Baseball Fund“I consider Adelphi a second home. Even living more than 200 miles away from Garden City, since graduating, I’ve made it a priority to come back to campus often, whether it is to participate in Homecoming Weekend, volunteer at Commencement, athletic, and alumni events, or to plan for Creative Cups.” –Beth Tenser ’91
The creative director and owner of IDZ94U and former creative director/designer at Bond Distributing, Inc, Ms. Tenser has designed and developed promotional advertising and signage for numerous Maryland venues throughout her career, including Oriole Park at Camden Yards; M & T Bank Stadium, the home of the Baltimore Ravens; and Pimlico Race Course, home of the Preakness Stakes.
She has also designed advertising and promotional materials for the NFL draft, the Fell’s Point Festival, the Johns Hopkins Spring Festival, Orioles Fanfest, and several annual Baltimore City festivals.
Ms. Tenser believes in the value of giving back. In addition to volunteering with several nonprofit organizations to raise money for the research and treatment of multiple sclerosis and Lou Gehrig’s disease, she is also her alma mater’s greatest supporter, sharing her time, talent, and knowledge with fellow alumni, current students, and the larger Adelphi community.
Ms. Tenser is the proud co-founder of Creative Cups, an art exhibition and fundraising event created to benefit the Adelphi New York Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline & Support Program.
In 2009, more than 200 bras were displayed and auctioned off at Adelphi to benefit the Breast Cancer Hotline & Support Program. The inaugural event was so successful that a second Creative Cups event was held in 2011, for which Ms. Tenser once again played an integral role in planning. To date, Creative Cups has raised more $100,000 in support of the Breast Cancer Program.
In 2011, Ms. Tenser has established two endowed scholarships at the University, The Beth Tenser ’91 Resident Student Award and The Beth Tenser ’91 Men’s Baseball Fund. These were first awarded in the 2013-2014 academic year.
