Bring warm clothes. & if your from the inner city it is a long drive by bus. Go their with a open mind and try to make as much friends as possible. Diversity on campus is very important.

Alfred State has been incredibly helpful and kind.
I couldn't believe how easy it is to get help.
Every visit i have had was exciting and fun!
Tips for prospective students
Make a list of question to ask your adviser, they will go question by question until they've answered every one until you understand.
Take advantage of their great gym for a student membership of only $45.
Academic Rigor
Alfred has so many different courses and everyone is amazing. I can't wait to start class. The teachers seem to be so fun and loves their jobs.
Dorm Life
The dorms I've been in were of great quality. I loved hanging out with my friends who already attend school there.
Food and Dining
The verity at the dinning room is awesome. I love eating there for every meal. Everything is good too, not just certain things.
What to do for fun
The dorm rooms have rec areas with pool tables and large rooms with flat screens with surround sound to hook up you Wii or Xbox and have a blast with friends. But my favorite spot to be is the gym, its good equipment and good people there for help and encouragement.
Bang for the buck
With one of the lowest cost to attend i would say this is defiantly worth it. Even if your commuting you still get use of the gym and meal plans. I surfed through many schools trying to find the best one and for the cost i couldn't pass it up. It was a steal!
Great for these types of students
Great for those students who want to experiences collage but don't want the feel of a huge new strange place. The campus faculty and students are extremely friendly and fun to be around.
Clubs and Activities
From cheer leading to basketball even soccer they have it all. The school spirit is outstanding.
Campus Safety
There is nothing to worry about on this campus. Every building has multiple locked doors you have to get through with people at them for safety reasons. if you are visiting a friend you will have to have that friend let you in. there's no way anyone can just walk in the door.

Did learn a lot
This school is really focused on helping you 'Hit the ground running'. The school has an extreme scope on what you will be doing the moment you graduate with a degree. Not only that, but while you are there they prepare you for your future career and provide many internship and job opportunities.

Am enjoying being here
I love Alfred. i have met so many Amazing people that it blows my mind. its one of those weird places you just meet so many amazing people. there are many activities and clubs to attend, and Alfred state students activities are always trying to make their students have a great time , for instances april 13th 2011 we are having Sick puppies CONCERT WOOT :D. and last year this time Kevin hart came and technically beta tested his jokes on us LOL.
Bang for the buck
Dont get me wrong i love alfred, but to be honest i wish i was in a college with almost more funding so they could better support their students. Res life here is awesome and all but the dorms are not that great. its a bang for you buck if you put yourself in the position to enjoy it all.
