Campus Food: The dinning services are not as good as they should be. Most of the time lines are crowded and it takes awhile to get food, which there will be awful selection of food. Some days the food is excellent but most of the tiem it isnt.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: The strictness is sometimes too much and RA's and public safety can be too strict. Most of the time they are liniant and understanding, they try not to get you in trouble for small things but big things such as drinking or anything dangerous to student body and campus life they take serious.

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.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: With the help of "On point for college" a non profit organization, the process went smoothly. Also Alfred was helpful with a lot of financial aid

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The buildings are good but could be cleaner and be renavated. A big issue would be parking for these dorm buildings there needs to be more spaces to park.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The atmosphere provided at Alfred University with everyone so friendly and helpful is great. Football is mostly the only sport that attracts a lot of fans. The dinning services are average and could be better. The most important thing is the education and the programs are excellent.

Off-Campus Dining: There are only a few restaurants off campuse in the local area, the food is good but there could be more places to eat.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Even though I have not lived off campus I have been in many of my friends off campus houses. Everything is mostly in walking distance around the area.The only problem I have is that the university requires students to live on campus for six semesters unless you have a valid reason, to save on finances is not one of the valid reasons they look for which is unfair.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: At my university there is no Greek life, I have heard it is because of past issues that has happened with deaths. I am not fully sure why we do not have greek life

4 College Sophomore

Academics: In my Business program there are a lot of opportunities with job fairs. Also the classes are great with learning a lot of material and most professors make the classes fun.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The workload at my university is a good balance that helps learn in the class but is not too much to handle. Professors are always nice and understanding with everything.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: During the end of fall semester and most of the spring semester it is freezing tempetures and snows almost everyday. When the weather is like this there is not much to do on campus and it is hard to go out and do any thing around the area. When the weather does warm up it is very pleasent on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Everyone in the university is accepted for who they are and there is not much discrimination.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: There are not many unique things that set Alfred Univeristy apart from other schools. The performing arts buildings are one thing that does. Everyone in the univerity is helpful and it has a family feeling for campus life. The Engineering, arts and business programs for a small university are great programs.

3 College Sophomore

Technology: There are a lot of computers with some being Mac computers but more would be useful

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Alfred is a small town, so I hope you're happy with Fox's Pizza, Terracotta, the Panda Chinese food, or Nana's Japanese Cafe and Pottery.

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.

Local Area: Your out in the middle of no where. Native tribes sent their men there because it was so isolated it left them in a state of temporary insanity for their "spirit walks". And the university did a good job of keeping it that way. its a small little town with some stuff to do, but its by far no city and we lack clubs. Our clubs consisted of bond fire and ewok tree housing with rope bridges. I'm not kidding either.

5 Recent Alumnus

Academics: I ended up switching majors part way through, but both schools were amazing in teachers and teaching methods. the teachers always had a sense of humor and barely ever really hated on students, and were generally too down to earth (cared about teaching not grades) to even care about favorites. As long as you did your homework, did it well and maybe made it a bit thought provoking, you were going places and could always rely on the teachers, as well as some of the local businesses who kept in touch with the school.

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.
