Adelphi University prides itself in many areas, including athletics, where 385 student-athletes and 23 intercollegiate teams continually achieve the highest successes. A proud member of the Division II community of intercollegiate programs that values the scholar-athlete, Panther Athletics competes in the prestigious Northeast-10 (NE-10) Conference. Adelphi’s athletes are national champions—with six national titles since 2001—and All-Americans. They are also standout students and citizens of their communities. Adelphi’s athletes excel not just on the court or field, but also in the classroom. Every year, numerous Panthers make the Northeast-10 Commissioner’s Honor Roll, and most Adelphi athletes earn a GPA of 3.0 or higher each semester.
Opened in 2008, the 76,000-square-foot Center for Recreation and Sports (CRS) features a three-court gymnasium, a suspended running track and significantly upgraded athletic training and rehabilitation rooms. Complementing CRS is Adelphi’s fully renovated Woodruff Hall, which houses a fitness center, pool and additional playing courts. Adelphi also has invested in its fields and outdoor competition spaces, including its all-weather Motamed Field, Janet L. Ficke Field for softball and William J. Bonomo Memorial Field for baseball.
