Adelphi Students Take a Bite Out of the Big Apple

Writer Joan Didion once said about Manhattan: “I still had the sense, so peculiar to New York, that something extraordinary would happen any minute, any day, any month.” For students at Adelphi University this is certainly true—as they regularly have the chance to discover “something extraordinary” in their time here. 

Being so close to New York City—less than an hour away by train—means we’re next door to a global center of arts, finance, entertainment, technology and international relations. We delve deeply into all New York City has to offer our students for life-changing experiences—at the United Nations, on Wall Street, on Broadway, in the halls of The Metropolitan Museum of Art or at Carnegie Hall. True to our roots and our mission, Adelphi continues to be powerfully connected to our communities and neighbors. Lucky for us, and our students, that includes the Big Apple.

I hope you enjoy this month’s newsletter and learning more about the inspiring academic, career and cultural opportunities our community gets to explore and enjoy right next door—in one of the world’s most connected and influential cities. 

All the best,
Christine M. Riordan, Ph.D.

Research: Adelphi at Carnegie Hall
Pulitzer Prize-winning composer and University Professor Paul Moravec, D.M.A. , has devoted his life to music, but he has another passion too: history. His oratorio, Sanctuary Road , tells a story of the Underground Railroad; it premiered at Carnegie Hall last spring. Find out how Dr. Moravec makes America’s past sing. Read “ Composing History ,” a feature article in our Academic and Creative Research Magazine .
In the Classroom and on the Road
Adelphi athletes once again matched their success on the field with accomplishments in the classroom, as 255 of our 338 Panthers made the Northeast-10 Conference honor rolls . Basketball player Emily Miccile combined sports and studies on a 10-day trip to Madrid, Spain, in June with Beyond Sports, a study-abroad program for student-athletes. And former field hockey star Molly Cuevas ’16, M.S. ’17, completed her 3,000-mile run from Santa Monica, California, to Montauk, New York, to raise funds and awareness for the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF).
Alumni Making a Difference: Frank Angello ’77
Frank Angello ’77 ends 12 dedicated years of service to our board of trustees—the maximum allowed—and officially becomes a trustee emeritus on October 1, 2019. Frank has had a critical role in helping Adelphi “create leaders and tolerant citizens”—the visionary goals he noted for Adelphi in his farewell speech. Along with his wife Phyllis, Frank leaves a powerful legacy of generosity, leadership and kindness here that will always be deeply appreciated.
