    The students are also very diverse at Alfred, and it is not what I was expecting at all. You'll meet people from all different backgrounds and with all different beliefs. It is neat because the school is very supportive of everyone, and everyone is their own person. Some things I like about Alfred are: The small physical size allows for getting around to be very simple, it has a very relaxed atmosphere, and the students have a say in pretty much everything. There are a few things I dislike about Alfred though, and some of those are: with only 2000 undergrads, it makes it slightly tough to meet new people after the first few months, it rains a lot during the fall and spring and snows all winter, and there is a huge number of football players (which you can interpret in your own way).

    Alfred works hard to not keep their students crammed into class rooms. For art many of the students get to go to Stony Brook within the first couple months of school.

    It is true that Alfred is in the middle of nowhere, and at times may seem remote, but this does not mean that the people here aren't friendly or engaging. Your college experience is what you make of it, and I can say that for the short time I've been at AU I've enjoyed myself.
