Having received two degrees from Adelphi, I can state it is a very good school. It is not "ivy league" by any means, but you get a good education. I got my first job in Florida because the man hiring me was from Long Island and knew of Adelphi and its reputation. However, this school is not inexpensive. But then most colleges on Long Island aren't. The campus is small and easy to navigate and the range of degrees is impressive.
