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.

Happy new semester to all new and returning Adelphi scholars! I hope you enjoyed the winter break and are ready to get back into the school spirit. This issue of our school’s award-winning newspaper The Delphian includes several detailed stories. The events we cover all help to shape what it means to be a Panther. 

Take a glance into our news section, as we highlight the success of our school with the Eighth Annual Career Expo. Read about when former Adelphi undergraduates returned to speak and influence the current student body about gaining internships and new jobs. Want to know what it’s like to be part of the faculty instead of the student? Read our ongoing series “Day in the Life of an Administrator” to get an idea. In this issue we feature President Christine M. Riordan. Dive into new details about classes being 100 in-person and about the Wi-Fi issues students have had and what the university is doing about it, as well as information about a new chatbot named Adele.

New year, new changes. In features, read about the accounting society and how it helps prepare members for their careers. Adelphi welcomes back another undergraduate alum, Allison Vernace, who is filling the role to oversee the university’s compliance with Title IX. Read about her road to the position. We also feature alumni Jonathan Larson ‘82.

Learn more about how to increase your productivity during the pandemic in our opinions’ section, home of Adelphi students’ ideas. There is a follow-up on the tragedy that took place during music artist Travis Scott’s Astroworld festival and a tutorial on set safety in response to the accidental shooting on the movie set of “Rust” in 2021. 

Ever wonder what life would be like for athletes if they never played sports? Read about what our Panthers would be doing instead. It might be cold outside, but spring sports are almost here. Read about the teams, athletes, coaches and what to expect this upcoming year. 

All that and more in the sixth edition of The Delphian. If you have any questions, comments, concerns or would like to submit an ad to be featured in our newspaper, please reach out to delphian@adelphi.edu.
