The people in SUNY Alfred State College and the friends I've made is my favorite part of the school. The course work and experiences with students and teachers are completely different per department. In the IT department, specifically Application Software Development. Students enrolled in Digital Media and Animation; have a studio for freshmen and tutors working in them to provide students help with any one of their classes. Compared to DMA, ASD only gets help with their programming classes. Specifically, the intro to programming courses while leaving the other courses such as intro to Networking and Web Dev up to the students to solve and figure out.

The classes I have taken online have been fun and engaging. Once Covid hit, that all changed. All classes for the Spring 2020 semester went online which changed many professors teaching styles. This also affected the students as it became much more difficult for students to keep up with the work and understand the material. Overall the classes that were meant to be online I have had a great experience while classes that were supposed to remain in-person was a terrible experience.
Alfred State is underestimated, to say the least. It checked everything off my list of college requirements, I feel safe, education is fantastic, and the people are genuinely friendly. I am in the architecture department and they have a very good balance of practical and theoretical teaching which I feel will allow me to thrive once I graduate. The campus is beautiful, especially in the fall. The only negative thing is the lack of practiucal accessibility routes between buildings.
