Family Weekend

Family Weekend


Have fun with the entire Adelphi community!

Family Weekend is a wonderful opportunity for families to visit with their students and celebrate their accomplishments. The weekend provides the chance for students’ relatives to experience Adelphi University firsthand and to interact with faculty, administrators, students, and other Adelphi parents. You will be immersed in the Adelphi community, just like your son or daughter is every day. You’ll discover why we’re proud to be Panthers and why you will be too.

In addition to all of the Family Weekend events, we are also offering the opportunity for family members to reside with their resident student in their residence hall room. 
We welcome you to take advantage of the many events offered throughout the weekend. Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to spend time with your student and enjoy Adelphi University!
