As an undergraduate and graduate student at Adelphi, I was able to take advantage of a plethora of opportunities. Adelphi’s Accounting program with its small class sizes, great professors, and countless networking events, provides an environment that promotes community and success.  Alumni, no matter where they end up in the accounting world, want to come back to share their Adelphi experience and promote their firm. Throughout my undergraduate and graduate years, I served as an accounting tutor. I was able to implement what my professors had taught me to help other students. As a tutor, I realized how the professors were teaching us more than just accounting. We learned life skills that I have implemented and will continue to apply throughout my career at Deloitte.
