When opportunity knocks, Stephanie Sinkoff ’17—a transfer student whose on-campus involvement jump-started her career development—is always ready to answer.

Sinkoff studied at Purchase College, State University of New York, and at Suffolk County Community College before she transferred to Adelphi. Friends at Adelphi told her she’d be a great fit, and once she went on a campus tour, she was hooked. “The community here is so vibrant and tight-knit,” she said. “Getting involved seemed effortless.” Sinkoff has done just that—and with flying colors. The majority of her free time at Adelphi was spent as transfer senator for the Student Government Association, which addresses and resolves complaints brought forward by students. “I made sure everyone’s concerns are met and change is enacted,” she explained. “It’s really important for students to have their voices heard.”

But Sinkoff’s participation in campus life didn’t stop there. She was also a member of Delta Phi Epsilon, the Marketing Management Society, the Finance Society, Works in Progress and the Robert B. Willumstad School of Business Dean’s Student Advisory Council. While others might see that level of responsibility as a burden to their schoolwork, Sinkoff found it invigorating. “When I transferred, I was looking to meet as many people as possible,” she said. “Then I became focused on making change, even if it’s just in small increments, and being someone others can rely on.”

While Sinkoff initially had her heart set on being a doctor, one class at Adelphi’s Willumstad School of Business turned her plans upside down. “That was all it took to realize I wanted to study business,” she recalled. A marketing major who graduated in May 2017, Sinkoff plans to follow a career in sales of medical equipment, which allows her to keep one foot in the medical world and one in business.

Looking back on her trajectory, Sinkoff has no regrets about making the decision to transfer. She’s forged lifelong connections, acquired invaluable experience and become a leader in her community. “Adelphi makes it easy to take advantage of all these amazing opportunities,” she said. “Transferring here was the best decision I’ve made in my life.”
