    I feel like I will receive a more personalized and individually focused education here at AU. I like that my classes are taught by professors with doctorate degrees, not grad students. There are opportunities for study abroad, co-op education, undergraduate research, and design competitions. And, of the four schools I was accepted to, Alfred Univ offered me the best financial aid package, making college affordable for me.

    AU was the least expensive private university that I applied to/was accepted to. I got a fairly good financial aid package. I just finished my first semester and I enjoyed it a lot and learned a great deal so I consider that fairly worth it. It is also very easy to get a job on campus and a majority of them are very flexible with hours. It iÂ?s extremely easy to find events on campus that offer free food and refreshments.

    It's a private school, so the price is more than some people would be willing to spend. That being said, I feel like my money is being well spent. The facilities are very well maintained, the meal plan offers good food at flexible hours, and campus sponsored events are of consistent quality.
