SUNY Alfred State College Reviews
So far so good, people are really helpful! My advisors have been very supportive thus far and very communicative.
Decent food but only 6 places to eat becomes old halfway through the semester. Most teachers are very competent and understanding. Small class sizes allow students to have a relationship with teachers similar to high school. Free tutoring is available. Students are taught well, people are very friendly, and the campus is safe. Only a few dormitories are sub-par. Overall, this college is very good for anyone seeking a thorough education in their major with many opportunities to land a job where they desire.
My first semester at Alfred State was pretty good. The academics is really strong. Most professors are well experienced and care about their students' education. Some dorms are good while some are horrible, and the same with food. So far, people have generally been nice and welcoming. I guess the only problem with Alfred State is how secluded it is from everything. There are a few restaurants and shops right outside campus but any Walmart or MacDonald's is at least sbout 12 miles away, though there are weekly bus trips offered by college.
