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.

We’ve entered the final stretch of the semester, and I will say that it went by unexpectedly fast. Throughout all the ups and downs, we’ve made it to the end. 

I’d first like to recognize two of our editorial board members who are graduating, Mylo Fisherman, our social media editor, and Bianca Viana, our features editor. Thank you so much for your consistent dedication to the paper and for all that you’ve done throughout your time at Adelphi. I wish you both nothing but success in your future. As they graduate, we also welcome our new editorial board members for 2023-’24. In addition to our remaining staff members, we welcome Hussein Ali Rifath as assistant news editor; Kurana Doobay and Kenneth Cervantes as co-features editors; Lilyen McCarthy as assistant sports editor; and Malika Burieva as social media editor. I’m so excited to have you all on board.

In this issue we have covered a range of topics, starting in News, including the coverage of the 20th annual Scholarship and Research Conference, the record-breaking results of Giving Day and insight on Adelphi’s enrollment issues as of late.

In Features, you will find senior reflections from Mylo Fisherman and Bianca Viana, along with profile stories of students Reid Taub, Jade Dorely, Andrew Graziosa and many more of our students who are doing great things! Read a review of the student production of “Men on Boats” and a student’s journey representing Adelphi University at the United Nations.

Are you wondering if adding a minor is worth it? Or what artificial intelligence has planned next as it advances and upgrades? Flip on over to Opinions to find out more information.

And finally, Sports highlights graduate student Kyria Moore from track and field and senior Alec Maag from baseball, concluding with positive words from our softball team that has been exceeding this season.

To everyone graduating in May, congratulations and I wish you the best of luck on all your future endeavors. Adelphi is lucky to have had you as students. To everyone else, good luck on all your final exams, projects and papers and don’t forget to make the most of your summers! 

Thank you all for your support towards The Delphian, and I look forward to being back in the fall semester, writing and editing once again. But goodbye for now, and I hope you enjoy our last issue of the spring semester.
