What Students Are Saying

3.61 Average Rating
Alfred U is a very personal college; the professors learn your name quickly and they offer you so much help. The meal plans are very convenient, although I wish Dining Dollars were available for purchase. It is -freezing- in the dorms, however, and I don't know when they're turning the heat on!!!
Jordan from Great Valley, NY
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.
