Cultural Experiences

Learning moves from the classroom to the broader campus and into New York City for Honors College students. The Honors College generously supports students keen to experience the rich culture of the region by supplying $10 tickets to major Broadway shows, operas, concerts, plays and dance performances.

Cultural Events and Trips

Every semester honors students head to museums and theaters in the region to experience the rich culture in and around New York City. In the past few years, students have been to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim, the American Ballet Theater, the Brooklyn Academic of Music, and performances including Don Giovanni, Aida, Angels in America, and King Lear.

On-campus, we have a long history of gathering students to discuss important books during the Deans’ Reading Circle.

Beyond the Honors College

Honors students are involved across the campus as leaders of clubs, members of teams, and are an important part of the fabric of the Adelphi community. The Honors College provides students a home on campus from which they can extend themselves into a broad range of activities at Adelphi University.

Student Clubs and Organizations Leadership Programs 

Honors College students support their colleagues in the arts this year by attending student theatrical productions, student dance concerts, the Jazz Ensemble, and a Best of Broadway night. Adelphi’s Performing Arts Center also broadcasts operas live from major theaters around the world, and this year’s productions include Verdi’s Macbeth, Handel’s Alcina, Gluck’s Orphee et Euridice, and Bizet’s Carmen. Students also attend campus-wide and departmental lectures and events.
