Dilara Islam ’16

Dilara Islam ’16 is a full-time trainee at the law firm Latham & Watkins en route to law school. Nahtahniel Reel-Yehudah ’14 is a civil engineer whose team recently completed construction on the tallest modular building in the world. Sara Kulins ’15 is in New Zealand conducting research vital to protecting our oceans. Alexander Klotsche ’17 is well on his way, working as an R.N. at New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center in New York City. Nefertiti Anderson ’12 is the digital content producer for the trade publication Ad Age and can frequently be seen on campus. “Adelphi continued to invest in me years after I graduated,” Anderson said. “I can’t imagine having gone anywhere else.”

These graduates credit Adelphi’s small classes—where they received personalized attention and mentoring from faculty members, and opportunities to pursue their interests through research, internships and experiential learning—as the key to being able to launch successful careers as soon as they received their bachelor’s degrees.
