    Take a trip and visit the campus! This is important! It is the best way to see if this school is a good fit for you. AU is located in a remote, rural, small town. This is perfect for some folks, but would be not be a good fit at all for others. So, visit!

    Visit the campus and do an overnight if possible. If you have the chance, take a look around some of the restaurants and shops in the town of Alfred to see if you can handle the small-town living (as it could possibly be substantially different from your hometown). If you can drive bring a car to campus if possible, as larger towns like Hornell are quite a ways away. The alarm for Alfred's fire department goes off at least once a day around 6-7 pm and can be heard for everywhere on campus so keep that in mind. Also, the woods near AU are used by hunters during hunting season, so if you enjoy going into woods during this time without wearing bright orange, please don't.
