Alfred University Reviews
The reason I applied and am still continuing at Alfred University is due to its outstanding and versatile Art Studio possibilities. They have many components that others schools do not have such as the National Casting Center for metal work, and their Glass Blowing studio. However their freshmen Foundations Program in art was in my opinion, very unfortunately, a large waste of my time and money. I am a College senior who transferred to Alfred after obtaining a previous degree in a different area of study. This is was led me to be incorrectly placed into a program for freshmen straight out of high school who were not on my level of work ethic, care, and ambition. This was very disappointed to have to endure for months. However I've gotten through this awful course and will be soon taking my real studios. I am very hopeful of Alfred from this point onward.
Alfred was an exceptionally friendly college campus. The overall atmosphere was rather warm, even in the cold months with the absurd levels of snow. Activities were ever abundant, and when it was time to work, there were numerous study groups and 24 hour resources available to students, regardless of major. The majority of my professors were not only exceptionally helpful, but also available and flexible when it came to making time for students. Obviously, no place is perfect, and there were some minor butting of heads between the different schools of study within Alfred, which at times would carry into the students perceptions, but overall everyone managed to get along fairly well, regardless of major, race, gender, orientation and the such. It should be noted that the school has an excellent exchange program for those coming from overseas.
Alfred University is a beautiful, small, safe and welcoming campus where students are treated as individuals, professors know their students, and there is plenty of support offered to help students succeed. It is a small university which makes for a less hectic atmosphere, more personal attention, and easier access to academic facilities and resources. Financial aid is generous. There are plenty of opportunities to get involved in clubs and organizations. I'm really happy I chose Alfred Univ.
