1 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: there are very few pickings

2 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There are only a few girls that are very attractive, most are average. They all like to party and have a good time though so it still is fun. There are a lot of athletic girls.

Guys & Girls: I wasn't very out going with women, still not. But all my friends I made there are now dating one and other or someone they met while there. And the women are extremely attractive and in healthy shape, kinda hard not to be with the ridiculous amounts of hills and stares. And a decent amount are very intelligent to boot, then there's the business school. not to hark on actual business majors, but the Alfred business school was kinda a lame duck for those who really didn't care to try.Thankfully, for me at least sorry ladies, majority of that school was male, so you could generally walk up to a women and have a pretty decent engaging conversation.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Guys? They're pretty sloppy and a touch androgynous (even the jocks). Girls? They're pretty sloppy and a touch androgynous. What can you say—the school has a huge art department. It's rumored that Playboy magazine once rated Alfred University as having the ugliest girls. It's just a rumor, of course. There are very attractive people to be found on campus (although it's hard to tell under all those layers). The men's swim team, for instance, seems to be getting quite a bit of buzz.

There is no "Alfred type," though there is such a thing as an "Alfred couple." Unlikely matches are common here, probably because you'll discover a person's personality long before you ever see a midriff, and you better believe that people are hooking up. Students are all just up here doing their own thing and trying to keep warm; and nothing keeps them warmer than, well, doing their thing!

Social Scene
There's an event in the first week of school called Block Party, where all of the clubs and organizations set up tables and displays for the freshmen. It's also a good time for the upperclassmen to get an eyeful of the untainted newcomers who are also on display. Everyone will know who you are within a week. If you feel like you're under surveillance for a little while, it's because you are, especially in the lunch room. Smile and say hi.
Hookups or Relationships?
Casual hookups are plentiful at Alfred. It's the most popular indoor sport. Unfortunately, if privacy or quality is important to you, you may be bound for more than a few types of frustration. Long-lasting relationships are hard to come by here. Campus life is so mundane, students look to dating to help break up the monogamy—uh, monotony.
Dress Code
No matter how AU students do themselves up, there's always one underlying theme: Yep—long johns. (Get it? Underlying?!) It's an unbelievably segregated campus, however, and trends vary by discipline. The art students enjoy Carharts, denim, and Salvation Army finds, and scarves and cheap, sturdy fabrics accented with a bit of color are always stylish. The liberal arts students are keeping Abercrombie & Fitch in business, unless of course they're some of the urban kids who won't be seen without a brand-new pair of sneakers (every day!) and a few conspicuous name brands. Sigh. Then there are the hippies. Boots. Hemp. Tie-dye. It's all very embarrassing. There are also interesting pockets of fashion. One group of guys was famous for their signature post-WWI Army-issued pea coats.
