  • “I heard about the program my second year at Adelphi through a couple of friends of mine that also told me about the Leadership Certificate Program. They helped me set up an appointment with Victoria Passarella to learn more about the program. At the time I was trying to expose myself to as much campus resources as possible but the Prep for Success Program stood out to me. It offered the necessary skills needed for professional development and helped me tremendously moving forward with my involvement.”

  • “Through Prep for Success, I developed a confidence and willingness to take strategic risks. By allowing me to hone in on my resume, LinkedIn, and interview skills, I felt comfortable enough to work on improving other areas of my development. I centered my focus on volunteerism, learning through my placement in the Jaggar Community Fellows Program, and in networking with employers. The connections I made through Prep for Success allowed me to create lasting partnerships and led me to a full-time position and graduate school. Through Prep for Success, I was able to direct my goals and work towards establishing my personal brand.”

  • “The Prep for Success Program serves as a unique platform for networking and connecting with others. At each event I attended, the program fostered a comforting environment where I was able to network with not only peers, but also professionals and leaders on Adelphi’s campus. I was blessed with the opportunity to connect with one of Adelphi’s greatest leaders, Robert B. Willumstad. The Prep for Success Program also facilitated networking with professionals outside of Adelphi, in which I was able to connect with fellow IBMers with whom I work alongside of today. ”
