After Alfred University

Honestly, I loved my program. My mentor was incredibly helpful and supportive, my adviser was knowledgeable, and my peers were so willing to work together and share their skills! My only complaint was that the facilities are sort of out-dated, which made some classes difficult, but overall, the experience and faculty were great. I took one year off after graduating, and will be entering graduate school in the fall for a doctorate in Psychology (Animal Behavior). I have no concerns with finding a job. Biology in general is a field where jobs are pretty readily available if you're qualified for them. There are a ton of graduate school programs, too. Also, my experience at Alfred allowed me to network with people at conferences and through my personal relationships with my professors (who they know at other universities, research facilities, alma maters, etc.).

Though Alfred is a very small town, there are several incredible restaurants right on Main Street for students to enjoy. My favorite would be Nana's Japanese Cafe, which offers a wide variety of extremely delicious (and organic/healthy) Japanese cuisine. It is easy to order any item off of Nana's menu and be very pleased with your choice. The Jet/Collegiate offers classic American diner foods at affordable prices, and is a good place for dining either with groups of friends or your parents. Terra Cotta cafe is another favorite of many, featuring delicious coffee, lattes, teas, desserts. They also serve delicious breakfast sandwiches and panini's, and have an open mic night every Wednesday!

The campus is intimate and it only takes a little over 5 minutes to walk from one end to the other which is very convenient. The freshmen dorms are very basic with shared showers which I didn't particularly like. Males and females separated by floor. The upperclassmen dorms are better but bring your own furniture for the common area as what is provided is not comfortable or sufficient. The location of the upperclassman dorms are typically on the hill farthest from campus so be careful of the ice in the winter! AU attracts a very diverse group of students with its art, engineering and business programs. I found the food, gym and other amenities above average. I guess for the money everything should be exceptional as it is just as or more expensive to live on campus as tuition for some programs. For those students with cars parking is scarce and most spots are reserved. Don't be like me and chance it for an hour because there were always lots of open spaces as I received too many parking tickets from students paid to walk campus and make the university even more money.
