Campus Dining: The dinning services are not as good as they should be. Most of the time lines are crowded and it takes awhile to get food, which there will be awful selection of food. Some days the food is excellent but most of the tiem it isnt.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The strictness is sometimes too much and RA's and public safety can be too strict. Most of the time they are liniant and understanding, they try not to get you in trouble for small things but big things such as drinking or anything dangerous to student body and campus life they take serious.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Throughout your Alfred experience, you or someone close to you will utter the phrase, "I've got to get out of here." Students at AU make threats to transfer at least twice daily. Still, very few actually do. Many students stay for an extra year. Some stay for grad school, and a good portion of the staff is composed of AU alumni. Why? Students are spoiled! It's comfortable here, the financial aid is great, and many professors are also great mentors. Who would want to leave all that personal attention and a close-knit group of friends to just be a number at another university with a better football team?

AU students will disparage their time at AU with venom. When asked to appraise their experience honestly, however, they'll shrug their shoulders and admit that Alfred has helped them to learn and grow as individuals. While some individuals transfer, the majority of students that chose Alfred knows deep down that they couldn't be anywhere else.
