5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love my school and take much pride in being a Saxon. From everything from our athletics to our academics. I just wish I got more financial aid from them. I still have to pay over ten thousand after loans a year, which is very hard for my family to do. My mother has taken out a parent loan which I am afraid is going to be very hard for her to pay off.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Getting a internship is very easy because the school stays on top of getting these opportunity for its students. There are so many work studies for the school year available that finding one in your degree is very easy and is great experience for your future.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Crime is very low on campus. I feel very safe on my campus, even when walking a lone in the dark. We have a texting alert system even if we do feel unsafe. This makes public safety come to us and assist whomever needs it. Our Wellness center is also very easy to make appointments with a doctor and is free.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I think just the process of going from having my own room to having to sharing it with a complete stranger was hard for me. As well as losing privacy when it comes to the bathrooms. The women I lived with in my dorm floor weren't the cleanest either and disobeyed many rules.

Other than that the rooms were a good size and had a lot of storage options. When I needed things fixed, putting in a work order was super easy and fast.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: As a cheerleader, of course I'm going to have a lot of school spirit. I love my school and am very involved in the sports on campus. My cheer team is not considered a sport so we aren't as held as high of standard as we all would like. But we do get to cheer for whatever teams we want. We cheer for the typical varsity sports (Men's Basketball and Football) as well as the not so usual like Women's basketball as well as club sports, like rugby.

I think the amount of fans we have at every game is awesome and every student is very involved with supporting all teams.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: When it comes to Alfred University, it's like a second home to me. When I first started off I wasn't sure with how well I was going to like living away from home and having to start all over. Just like most first year students, the first month was hard. I missed my family and friends so much. At first, I didn't take advantage of all the club opportunities, which I feel would have helped in the long run. I did, however, join the cheer club and instantly felt better about spending the next four years of my life in this community. I have met some of the best people as the months passed and became very involved in my schools community. I have had the opportunity to give back in the nearby towns with community service and have also been able to participate in my first 5k. Although Alfred is a one-stop-light town and seems very little from an outside standpoint, I have had more opportunities here than I have ever had before.

My work study is already helping me prepare for my future career. I work at the business office where I am in charge of scanning invoices, that are sent through the school, and review budget sheets making sure that everything is correct. This job, even though it may not seem like much, has opened my eyes to the financial world and how things work at a university. For me, it's very exciting to learn more about what job fields are offered to me after I graduate.

When it comes to opportunities in the class room, I would say AU excels in the School of Business. As a freshman I have been given so many opportunities to build up my experience in my future field. I have already created my own business as well as given a presentation on a stock for the Investment Club. I have also been given the opportunity to to attend a conference in NYC as well as meet the head of this conference afterwords.The Career and Development Center will always be there for it's students as well, helping them find jobs, even years after they graduate.

Health & Safety: Alfred is relatively quite. There are the occasional incidents but they are responded to quickly and strongly. The student body often responds in outrage when these crimes occur and the administration does everything they can to stop it from happening again. The only weekend where there seems to be a problem is Hot Dog Day weekend, and a lot of that is vandalism.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professors are here because they want to be here and that shows in their enthusiasm in the classroom. They are passionate and they make learning from them easy because they make it interesting. They are readily available to help students and even take on a lot of extra projects out of interest. They are intelligent and the top in their field. The courses themselves are always being updated to keep up with the changing times and to keep the classroom interesting.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The only real problem here is that Students aren't always told about all the networking opportunities this campus has. Luckily, there are seminars students can (and sometimes have to) take which explain all the resources available to students. The CDC is amazing and helpful - students just need to be taught more about it so they will know to go there.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: This one is hard because some of the dorms are great, close to the classes you want, and respectful. However, there are others that are in more remote locations on campus, are noted for their obnoxious behavior, and generally just awful. Personally, my favorite dorm so far is the Brick.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Our school really isn't a big athletics college. We're top in the equestrian world but pretty low on the totem pole in all of our other sports. However, there is a lot of team spirit at our school and a great athletic trainer's major.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Alfred is unique in a lot of aspects. The campus generally has a friendly atmosphere and a lot of times students become close friends with their professors. Sometimes I feel like the school encourages us to compete heavily with the others in our majors instead of encouraging us to work together to attain our goal but that competition often helps create a strong learning atmosphere. There isn't a lot to do around in Alfred, however, and for some students that seems to be a problem. However, we have an excellent equestrian center and lots of hiking trails for those who enjoy outdoor activities (like myself.) Alfred also has a rich history and lots of different courses a student can take. The one main problem I have with this school, however, is that the food is terrible.

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.
