Adelphi’s 2022 Spirit Weekend—running from Wednesday, October 12, through Sunday, October 16—will offer five days of Panther community friendship, fun and celebration on Adelphi’s campus and beyond, and more events than ever before.
A longtime tradition for Adelphi students, alumni, faculty, staff and community members, Adelphi’s Spirit Weekend will be in person again, although Spirit Weekend Game Show: Playlist Bingo will be offered virtually on October 16.
“We are thrilled to welcome our alumni back to campus to enjoy a full slate of in-person activities this year,” noted Thomas Kline, EdD, vice president of University advancement and external relations. “Saturday’s events will include a 5K run, brunch in the newly renovated Ruth S. Harley University Center, an Oktoberfest and beer garden coinciding with the Spirit Carnival, and the 10 Under 10 Induction Awards Ceremony. We’ve made sure there are ample opportunities for our graduates to reconnect and experience all of the great things happening here at Adelphi.”
“Spirit Weekend is one of Adelphi’s most treasured traditions,” said Anna Zinko, Adelphi’s assistant vice president for student affairs. “It provides an opportunity to bring members of our community together to participate in a variety of events and, most importantly, reconnect with each other and celebrate our pride in Adelphi University. The weekend is filled with amazing activities for faculty, staff, students, alumni and members of the local community to enjoy.”
