Alfred University is a great school, it is small and you get a lot of personalized attention from the professors.

I love going to Alfred! The town and the two colleges within the town are amazing and very close knit.

I love Alfred University. During my visit I fell in love with the atmosphere the school provided. Originally I wanted to go to a large school but I am glad I didn't. I met so many great people not just at Alfred University but at our sister school across the street. With these two school together we contribute so much to the town of Alfred. It's nice to say this is a college town and not for the reason everyone thinks. It makes you feel so connected with everyone you meet because you have something amazing and unique in common. It's small enough where you can stay close to everyone but yet it is so diverse you are meeting great new people everywhere you go. Personally, I would not come back for Grad School because I'd like to spread my wings and be able to leave the school that allowed me to grow into a mature, wise woman. This was one stepping stone of my life and graduate school should be a new one.
