    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.

    I'll be honest, I'm paying $43,000 a year for Alfred. That's really steep, but I am very happy with my choice. Alfred is very high up in the Nation's best colleges and it partners with good graduate schools, like Cornell and Yale. There are so many fun and free events to go to that it is worth it, AND Alfred is a private University so on top of all the government aid that you receive, Alfred gives out grants and scholarships left and right! Really I only ended up paying $2,100 after all my grants and scholarships =) (That's including books!)
