We are so glad that your first-year studenthas chosen Adelphi University. Parents are an important part of the Adelphi community. That’s why we have a Parent Meet and Greet on the first day of both of our summer First-Year Student Orientation Sessions. At this brief event, you’ll have the opportunity to meet University leadership and your fellow parents and learn more about academics at Adelphi, student services, our Parents Association and what your first-year student will experience at Orientation.
Check which Orientation your son or daughter will be attending and register today. After moving your student into his/her residence hall, the parent(s) will go immediately to the Performing Arts Center, Olmsted Theatre. The program begins promptly at 10:45 a.m. The Meet and Greet will include a reception which ends around noon.
In addition, parents are invited to attend a Parent Orientation that occurs on your first-year student’s Matriculation Day, where students formally welcomed into the Adelphi family. Parent Orientation focuses on University services, including health and safety. There will also be a helpful discussion about the coming separation and independent development of your son or daughter, with some tips about this transition. You will meet University administrators and faculty, current Adelphi students and other parents, as well as attend an academic program related to your student’s major.
