Welcome Back
As we look ahead to the May graduation season, it is exciting to read about the success of our soon-to-be graduates in this edition of our newsletter. Whether it be success in pursuing graduate school, a high-level professional qualification or getting a great job to launch a career, our graduates look to pursue rewarding and satisfying paths in life. This is a bittersweet moment for faculty and staff as we bid farewell to these graduates, but, like many of our alumni, we are pleased to see that you keep in touch and encourage you to submit your news via adelphi.edu/classnotes. Check out the most recent photos from Inside the Teacher's Classroom, with returning alums from our BEST residency program and others. It was an inspiring event.
