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.

    Alfred University is a small, beautiful, private college with a welcoming and friendly community atmosphere. It is a place where professors get to know their students (because class sizes are small), where students are expected to succeed, and where the academic focus is on the success of undergraduates. Alfred University is located in a rather remote and rural area of New York State which is perfect if you love the great outdoors, but not so perfect if you crave big city excitement.

    AU is a small college in a small town with not a lot going on so you will need to do a little exploring to find things to do. It is excellent if you are an creative person who enjoys art. It is a great education for the price.

    Alfred University is a great, small college. The academic courses offer challenge and ways to learn above and beyond the classroom. Most of the professors I've dealt with in my two years here are fantastic and are always ready to help.

    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.
