This review is being written in complete and total contrast from 'Tulane Tom'. I am not sure if he is even describing the same university. Tom says that the ceramic engineering program, regarded as one of the best in the world, is built up to nothing. Not to mention the engineering program as a whole that offers a very unique and challenging curriculum that is ABET (accreditation board for engineering and technology) certified. Very few other institution offer outstanding ceramic, glass, and materials classes, research opportunities, and expertise from established professors in a smaller classroom setting. And fewer places offer...

    The school is in the middle of nowhere but has an amazing atmosphere from what I picked up. The students there seem very nice and hardworking. It is a wonderful university with plenty to do.

    Alfred is an itty-bitty western N.Y. town containing two colleges (A.U. being the better of the two). Alfred University is where you will be accepted for who you are and supported in your quest to become something better. I love it.

    Alfred University is a school of diversity, acceptance, and passion. If your desire is to meet people from all over the world, from every faith and belief, this is your school. Please only attend if you can see everyone as an equal, because Alfred accepts all races, faiths, sexualities, and gender identities.

    Alfred U is a very personal college; the professors learn your name quickly and they offer you so much help. The meal plans are very convenient, although I wish Dining Dollars were available for purchase. It is -freezing- in the dorms, however, and I don't know when they're turning the heat on!!!

    Alfred has made me much more sure of myself as a student. Being a transfer from a large school was hard at first but Alfred University staff and teachers made the transition simple. Having the ability to be more one on one with teachers and staff has lead me too become the best student and worker I can be.

    It's one of the friendliest and nicest places I've been in my life. It's far away from the city but it's very relaxing and even though I don't like the outdoors much, it's soothing. You will never be short of friends here.

    There is something at Alfred for everyone and therefore I love it. The people who don't like Alfred don't try very hard to look for things to be active in. Even if Alfred doesn't have something you love it is very easy to make it happen (as in create your own major or club).
