5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Alfred is a great sxhool to go to in general, but especially so for art. The foundations program that all freshman in the School of Art and Design take is rigorous; challenging the students by forcing them to work in mediums and with ideas that are far beyond the reaches of their comfort zone. The professors are always caring of performance, especially if yhey recognize that the student cares deeply about learning new skills even if they are incredibly uncomfortable doing so. This extends outside the art program as well; I've yet to meet a teacher that was not enthralled by the classes they teach or the students they had.

Overall Experience: I have enjoyed ans excelled in most classes. It is not easy but I am learning.

Campus Housing: I would recommend Barresi to all freshman. Don't live in oppenheim, Teft, or Rimer if you can help it. Cannon and the brick are very nice, and so are the suites if you have good suite mates.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: I'm not personally involved in sports, I don't really know.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love everything about the school. If you choose to get involved, opportunities are endless. The honors program is great. And where else can you take a midnight class in astronomy at an observatory? Or one where you work in a sugar bush making maple syrup?

4 College Freshman

Academics: Academics here are great. Alfred University was rated as far up on the list as Princeton. Academics are taken very seriously here which is great. Professors help you out as much as they can, and you always have lots of support.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: You always have public safety to call if you need to, and the campus is extremely lit. Also, everyone looks out for each other. There have been a few issues on campus but not too bad.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: General class sizes are small which is great because it gives you a chance to really connect to your professors. Your professors are also always willing to help you succeed.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The Career Development Center is placed in the castle on the hill, it's extremely pretty and they help you out with everything. You can talk to them about internships, resumes or even applying for a job.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorm building lobby is great, and you make a lot of great new friends there. The dorm rooms are a little small but you get used to them.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Some sports do extremely well, however some sports struggle, but every single sports team on campus puts in a ton of effort and tries extremely hard.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The faculty work extremely hard to help the students succeed. They push you to do your best, and help you out whenever you need it. There are also a lot of great extra curricular activities available on campus. These activities give students a chance to go out of their comfort zone and try new things, and also make great new friends that will last a lifetime.

Health & Safety: It's a pretty safe campus overall I think

1 College Sophomore

Party Scene: More a drug scene than a party scene

1 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: It's a normal thing to do cocaine

3 College Sophomore

Academics: It is very hard to make effective use of on campus resources with few available areas to study in isolation. The business school is very sub par with the exception of a few excellent courses

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: All classes are small, some professors are pretty good others are terrible, very few stand out, Professor Rodriguez is the best by far

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: If you are an art student or a ceramic engineer this is a great place to go but as a business student it was barely even a good use of my time and money

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are decent sized and relatively clean

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Very difficult to remain athletic without being on a varsity team

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Basically just a more specified high school, not really a step up in quality or difficulty

3 College Freshman

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

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.
