What is good for some is bad for others.Not so brightMechanical Engineering
What is good for some is bad for others. For instance, I love that AU is small. It is less hectic. I feel safe here. You'll get to know your professors and they will know you. Your classes are taught by professors, not TAs. Despite the school's small size, there are still great opportunities here - for study abroad, research (undergrads can get involved), project based learning, co-ops, and internships. The campus location is remote and rural. This does not bother me. I enjoy the outdoors (fishing, hiking, kayaking, skiing, snowboarding) and dislike big cities. The surrounding region is beautiful but it would be incredibly boring if you love to bar hop and go to clubs. The town of Alfred is very student centered, but very small. If you're thinking of going to school here, visit first.

I have been at Alfred State College forAverageMechanical Engineering
I have been at Alfred State College for 4 years now and will graduate on time with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering Technology. Coming from a fairly large city my first impression was that the town of Alfred and Alfred State College was small. Although after spending my first semester here I found that to be to my advantage. My class sizes were small and never overwhelming in size. All of my teachers know my name and are always willing to help me understand class material outside of class. As far as the town of Alfred its size lets you get around easily by walking. You can walk right into town and have a coffee with a group of friends or even get some thing to eat. Alfred is a place where I was able to focus and get my work done and its friendly atmosphere has let me meet friends that I will have for a lifetime.

Honestly after my first year at Alfred StateQuite BrightArchitecture
Honestly after my first year at Alfred State I was very satisfied with my college experiance. Sure it is not a top notch school but thats not what you are paying for. Overall if you put your self out there you will find that most people are open minded and willing to help. That is if you PUT YOUR SELF OUT THERE. As far as activities on campus goes there are plenty if you keep updated, lots of events in the dorm usually a event from the Alfed Programing Board once a week and sometimes more. Alfred like all colleges is really what you make of it, if you are an outgoing fun loving person strongly consider. Main reason for not liking the school is if all your really plan on doing is drinking, sitting around and doing nothing... and well we dont want you here anyways. Trust me there is a lot more going on in this small little town if you ask around and find the events, sorry folks its not high school they are not going to spoon feed them to you.
