Letter from the Editor

Bringing you news from Adelphi University

The Delphian is proud to announce that we received Outstanding Organization at the 2021 Virtual Brown and Gold Awards.  The awards took place on May 10.  Thank you to all of the writers, staff and faculty who helped make this possible.

I’ve been a part of The Delphian since my first semester at Adelphi and now it’s a part of me. I’m sad to say that this will be my last time writing a letter like this for the newspaper, but I know we have so much good in store for the upcoming semesters!

I want to thank Professor Liza Burby for being my constant support while running this newspaper for the past three semesters. She has brought this paper together again and again and I could not have done it without her. I also want to thank my incredible staff for supporting me and the paper as it took on changes and improvements. And lastly, I want to thank you, readers, for reading! This paper could not exist without you.

And with that, I’d love to announce our new staff for our upcoming semester. A big congratulations to Joseph D’Andrea as he is our next editor-in-chief! I’d also like to congratulate Arpan Josan as assistant news editor, Skylar Dorr as features editor, Taye Monique Johnson as opinions editor, Gabrielle Jaipersaud as production editor and Chala Civan as social media editor. Congratulations also to Hussein Rifath for rising to news editor! I can’t wait to see what all of you are capable of. The Delphian is in great hands.

I’m also sad to say my farewells to so many incredible seniors this semester: Justin Kresse, Kennie Dionisio, Andrew Smith and Joanna Reid. Thank you all for your continued work on this paper. It certainly does not go unnoticed, and I know you all are going to do such amazing things.

Congratulations to the class of 2024! And best of luck to everyone on finals, you’re going to do great. Thank you again, everyone! Make sure you follow our Instagram, @the_delphian, for updates regarding the paper! Remember that we also have a website, so look for articles there all summer as well at
