4 College Sophomore

Academics: The education offered is amazing . The teachers are great. The workload gets to be a bit much sometimes which does affect my grades. I need to work to go here and besides a work study job I also have a pt job in Hornell so it does get difficult sometimes. I love the art building. It is a shame that it isnt open all of the time anymore due to a few losers.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

If you think of your professors as professionals, mentors, or even babysitters, you might like Alfred. Most professors at Alfred University have a doctorate or the equivalent in their field of study. Departments and classes tend to be small, even intimate. While professors at some other universities may leave the teaching to a few bewildered TAs, faculty members at Alfred are actively involved with their students. It’s also not uncommon to be invited to a professor’s home for tea or a cookout.

The downside to this is that you really can’t escape them. If you’re not in class, they will notice, and some may even leave a cryptic message on your answering machine. Professors tend to be a little set in their ways and very quirky—the watermarks of small-town living. Still, most have a well-developed sense of humor, and they know what they are talking about.
