          • Testimony
            1978-1989, MS

            "It is what is between your ears that makes your life happy or not."

            This was the most profound statement I had every heard and as my life evolved, I will testify that it is the most true and impacts my work every moment of every day. Adelphi's culture was easy and had chosen some of the best teachers-people_ I have ever encountered. Phoebe Lazarus-humanistic education- I drank it all in-Bouklas Bucks....School was fun, relevant and deeply helped me become introspective and shift my life for the better. I was in a terrible relationship but through mu studies and deep caring and all I was learning, I went for what was better, filled with integrity and loved myself out and away form what was destructive. Adelphi rocks and still love it to this day. After writing this I am feeling a deep sense of connection and thinking maybe I want to give back and work there. Hmmmm. Got my passion meter going!

Lynne Shulman, Director of Social Work Programs at the Hauppauge Center, is the epitome of an outstanding, caring, supportive program director !!!
