Spotlight on Campus Events

Eddie Huang at Adelphi

Eddie Huang came to Adelphi on March 4, 2015, and shared his inspiring story to an audience of students and faculty. As the celebrity chef of Baohaus restaurant in New York City and creator of the new TV show Fresh Off The Boat, the authenticity of his presentation about the challenges he faced throughout life was greatly appreciated. Seeing how far he has come as a first generation American—managing to reach his once seemingly unrealistic dream and accomplishing so much more beyond that—just goes to show that only time can tell what’s in our own futures.


It’s On Us

On February 23, 2015, a panel discussion was hosted as a collaboration between the Student Government Association and the LGS Student Council. Organized as an open forum, panelists discussed topics surrounding sexual assault on campuses and the issue of violence against women. Students shared their own experiences relating to the subject and offered advice to the audience, stressing the importance of taking action as a bystander. It’s On Us to create a safer environment for ourselves and our peers.
