Posted on December 28th, 2018 by Phu Nguyen

Adjusting to college life in the U.S. can be challenging — a new language, new ways of learning, and a new home. It’s important to find a school that will help ease this transition with additional support services, instruction tailored to your academic and language level, and cultural experiences to ensure your future success. If you’re looking for a school that is highly awarded, nationally ranked, a powerfully connected doctoral research university offering exceptional liberal arts and sciences programs and professional training, you’ll want to consider Adelphi University.
