Past Momentum Tour Events

Stories That Changed Our Lives: A Gathering of Panthers Past, Present and Future

President Riordan’s Momentum Tour began in Fall 2017 to connect and energize Adelphi’s community of alumni, friends, and current and future students and families. Dr. Riordan visited cities around the country spending time with Adelphi community members, catching up, and sharing stories of progress and Adelphi experiences. At these lively events, we are always so inspired by how Adelphi has shaped all our lives.
