Alfred University Reviews
To me, Alfred University is a wonderful school. I am an art and design student who focuses a lot on ceramics, so with all the resources around that that Alfred holds makes me excited to wake up early every morning to get started on my work. I have made a lot of new friends through my classes. Also an additional bonus I never thought I would appreciate is the hills the campus is on the classes are at almost the lowest points and my dorm room is at a higher point so I have never been in better shape than at Alfred! The professors are understanding and are will to work with students as well, you really get the feeling someone has your back at Alfred University! Go Saxons!
I personally loved my Alfred experience and it seems like it was all a dream now! (2017 alum- SoAD). However, I was ultimately left with little job opportunities, even after ALSO pursuing my MBA at Alfred, and the school really never helped me find a way out of living with my parents after school. I'm now hoping to go back to school with hopes to never return home.
I love Alfred. The flexibility of your education allows you to easily double major, or add minors between the schools. The campus is tucked away, allowing for beautiful studying views and the ability to take in nature. Class sizes are small and the teachers know you by name. Almost every professor is willing to take time outside of class to really help you understand the material. They also provide the ability for real world experiences during your education, putting you above the competition upon graduation. I'm lucky I went to Alfred University.
