I can't stand being in Alfred.Quite Bright
I can't stand being in Alfred. The place sucks, the campus is on a mountain, it's freezing half the year, and the people are HIPPY FREAKS. There is no night life and there aren't any malls or good restaraunts for almost 2 hours away and that is just ridiculous. The people are nice, but sooo strange. They all dress like they walked out of a thrift store and have paint all over themselves. The other half is just dorky fat chicks...90% OF THE GIRLS HERE ARE DISGUSTING AND FAT. Call me shallow, but every guy here will say the same thing. Also, there is no parking, security tickets you once a day and the school is overall way too small (the size of my high school! Not even 2k!)

So, i'm leaving. I'm going to a school where people who care what they look like, and where there is a DOWNTOWN and places to go that aren't 2 hours away.LATER ALFRED.

Adelphi University gives students an opportunity to obtain a first class education in a very caring and welcoming environment.

A few years after completing my undergraduate studies, I returned to the University and obtained an MBA from the School of Business.
