Getting Started at AU


Adelphi University invites and encourages parents to attend the Matriculation Ceremony on Tuesday, September 2, 2014.

During this time honored and formal ceremony, members of the Adelphi Board of Trustees, senior administration and faculty welcome freshmen to the Adelphi community of scholars. 

Parents in previous years have commented on how special this program is. All freshmen must attend, and we hope parents will join us as well.
