3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: I'm taken, lucky I found a good one. Lots of girls about guys only wanting sex.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: AU has no greek life

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I'm not too into sports so I don't really care.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There aren't many places to eat off campus without driving to Hornell or Bath

3 College Sophomore

Administration: If you get caught on campus for the first two times it stays on campus so it gives students another chance to try and not get caught.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: They try their best but the amount they give is never enough.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The food is bland and often repetitious. For what we are paying for our meal plans the food should be held to a much higher standard. I do not pay that much to eat salad that is practically brown and meat that is completely under cooked and a health risk. They try too hard to make these disgusting gourmet dishes.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It really depends on who else in on the floor with you. The biggest impact on me were my very noisy and disruptive neighbors; neighbors who would get confrontational if you decided to ask them to be quiet because it's 3 am and you have a test the next day. Eventually I just automatically started going to the RD who wrote them up every time and that seemed to get them to be more cooperative and considerate.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of spots off campus that are great to live in. They have more parking and there really arent any rules when it comes to guests.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a few really great spots that are cheap and friendly. Its right next to campus and they offer some discounts.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: There are a lot of parties around town at the bars and graduate houses. They seem to be really great.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The strictness isnt that bad. They enforce basic rules that shouldnt be broken, especially if its against the law. If its a small rule that was broken you wont really get in any trouble as long as nobody was hurt.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: My financial aid process went very smoothly and I had no problems at all. just be sure to get it in early. Dont wait until a week before the deadline.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is ok. In Powell its not bad and you get a better variety and much healthier options but other places there isnt that variety. Though throughout the campus they have vegan and vegitarian options as well as fresh fruit and vegetables.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are fine. Some are small and others are divided with this strange half wall but other than that it's very functional. They can be rather expensive though especially for a single. The housing process is simple and most of the residence halls are right on academic alley so classes are right outside your door.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports aren't super big at my school, but there are good workout facilites for everyone regardless if they play a sport or not.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't lived off campus before, so I don't know what it is like

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I can usually find something I am in the mood for whenever I want to.

2 College Sophomore

Administration: Our school administration may not be strict, but they are very unorganized

2 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Usually there isn't much going on at all, but you can always count on a good fishbowl night at GJ's!

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I have just enough money from the school so I can afford to continue going there

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There is a problem with a lack of healthy food options offered. They need to have a better mix of healthy food, and slightly less healthy food for those who prefer that kind of food

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Housing can be good, as long as you get a good time in the lottery to sign up

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I live off-campus and have for two years and I love it. It is so much cheaper than on-campus! Apartments above the bar/ pizza place are super nice. Houses are ok, but you have to look early to get a nice one

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There's quite a few places you can walk to and get food including a coffeehouse, pizza place, sub place, chinese place, and small restaurant. Or you can take a drive and get pizza hut, applebees, McDonalds, BK, italian restaurant, club 57 restaurant ,etc

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
