Languages Reunion 2016

Registration is now available for Languages at Adelphi— a special event celebrating our language majors during Adelphi’s Reunion Weekend 2016 being held this June 3 and 4 on the Garden City campus. 

This will be a celebration of our major—and a great opportunity for you to return home to Adelphi, reconnect with fellow alumni and commemorate the Adelphi experience! Learn where the department is today, meet our newest faculty, visit with current students and take part in a dialogue, What I have done with languages?   

The schedule is simple and affordable so that we can all enjoy the day.  Please see the schedule below. You can also save on the registration by signing up by April 25, 2016. 

The Office of Alumni Relations has reserved a block of rooms at the Garden City Hotel for reunion attendees.  Contact the hotel at (516) 747-3000 ext. 7000 and reference the Adelphi University Reunion 2016 group.  Or if you would prefer, you can stay in one of the newest dorms on campus and immerse yourself in the Adelphi experience!  Registration for the residence hall stay is on the enclosed registration form or the online form.
