3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Classes are fairly good, not much to do around the campus or town though.

Overall Experience: Alfred University is one of the most student-friendly campuses. Everyone is very nice and the classes are taught at the high level and there is an opportunity to meet with your professors every week, if not every day. The atmosphere for homecoming is amazing and there seems to be something new to learn about this school everyday.

Overall Experience: Alfred University has been an amazing experiance for me so far. Attending a school that truly cares for my success is really important to me. They are constantly pushing me to work harder and continue to challenge myself not just accademally, but also socially.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The professors are amazing. They are enthusiastic and incredible. I have learned more from them than just the material, they have passion for both the students and their work and it shows in everything they do. They go above and beyond for us every day and I love them for it! The campus is beautiful and I love how small and intimate it is.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I chose this school because it is suppose to be the best ceramics school in the country. While here, I have been worked to death in the art studios but I must admit that I have improved greatly. The food kind of sucks, I would suggest that any incoming students try to get off the meal plan as quickly as possible and start cooking their own food. I have also meet many great friends here and even a boyfriend, I cant imagine life without going to Alfred University.

Off-Campus Housing: I have not lived off campus but everyone who does seems very pleased with it. It can be cheaper if you find the right house/apartment and you don't have to deal with RA/RD's.

2 College Sophomore

Party Scene: It's normally fairly crowded and sloppy at the town houses. The parties also tend to get busted quickly.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus food is better than on campus but there is not too much variety as there are limited options.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Public Saftey is pretty easy to deal with and they are like normal campus Saftey. They do issue parking tickets that are sometimes unjust (couldn't make it into the parking lot because of snow) but will drop charges if you go talk to them.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: When you enter as a freshman you are given a scholarship based on your high school GPA. You keep it all four years as long as you keep your GPA above a minimum requirement.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: It is worth buying your own food and cooking in the dorms. The food at Midknight is one of the better options but it is only open at night

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are okay to live in as long as you have a good roommate. The suites have very small rooms and you are responsible for cleanng up after yourselves in your bathroom and kitchen which can cause problems with messy roommates.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I can live in it but it needs more cleaning staff and updates.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Main street is filled with food places which is nice because campus food sucks.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: GJs is fun to dance at, off campus parties and the frat houses from Alfred state (the college across the street) are also fun.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The RAs and the RDs are really awesome. They are more of like a mentor then an authority figure.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The school did provide me with scholarships and if I meet the criteria for other scholarships the school offers in the future then I can apply for them.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is really bad at Alfred university. I know they are trying to improve it and the staff is doing a good job but it is still pretty terrible. My aunt went to college years ago and when she came to visit me she was shocked that the food was worse now in modern time then when she went to SUNY New Paltz so many years ago.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The bathroom situation in my hall was terrible, the shower situation was the worst. The atmosphere was a great experience though. The RAs and the RD made the year really great. I also enjoyed how there was a nice common room and a pool room.

3 College Sophomore

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

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.

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.
