Alfred is a good option for numerous reasons. I will start off by saying if you want a big campus with a lot of things to do and more of a city-like feel, then this isn't the place for you. Alfred is a small, tight-knit community. I love the class sizes because they are small, and the professors get to know you on a more personal level. Alfred has the best ceramics school in New York State, whether that be ceramic arts or ceramic engineering. Alfred prides themselves on their art program, so this is definitely a school worth researching if you want to study any sort of art. It's a great school to make friends and Alfred is doing a better job of being more diverse. I overall have enjoyed my time and I will be sad once I have to leave.
The University is beautiful. I have gone on a tour recently and fell in love with the scenery and even the history of the campus. The tour guides and even the faculty are extremely helpful and are quick to answer any questions at hand. The people all know one another and the campus as a whole feels like you are at home and you always feel safe. Plus if on the flipside you ever get lost everyone is beyond happy to guide you in the right direction!
I overall love Alfred. The classes are great and very involved. The campus is secluded and beautiful. The professors are always willing to help whenever you are in need. Going to football games are awesome with the stands packed and the student section cheering. The only thing is the dining food isn't always consistent.
I love school here. I'm from way out of state, so travel is difficult, the food here sucks most of the time, and the art program is insane for first years. I went to transfer at the start of second semester, but despite all of the reasons why I should leave, I stayed. And I am so glad I did. The art program is insane but it has to be, and for that my class and I are far better artists now than we were at the beginning. This school really opened my eyes and helped me expand and explore my limits and the limits of art itself. It's also a fantastic community, better than any other, and as far as food goes, the Moka Joka in Harder Hall will help you survive. All the struggles of attending are entirely worth it, it's only four stars for the food at Ade. Also, if you're a first year in the art program, stay strong, and make work that you're proud of.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Alfred University is 62%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
It doesn't matter what the books say. To know if a school is right for you, visit. It's best to visit your chosen schools more than once, because weather can have a huge effect on the mood of the school, and a freak storm or sunny day can adversly influence your choice. Talk to people there, not just the tour guides. Tour guides are paid to make the school sound good, so do some investigating on your own.
Check up on what Alumni are doing too. This can give you a good idea of what graduates in your intended field have accomplished, and the more people that have been successful in that field, the more likely you will be to have a leg up when networking.
Also, ask people you admire where they went to school. Not only can they give you an idea of where you want to go, you can ask them what is important to them in finding a college. Perhaps passionate professors are what made them who they are, or a large campus with a lot of diversity, or tons of extracurriculers that really let them explore their interests outside of academia.
My classmates are great people. They are very friendly and willing to help each other. Upper classmen are approachable and helpful. There are a lot of my classmates with different skills and interests who are always open to sharing their experiences.
The small classes. You get more attention and individualized instruction.
The worst thing about my school is the freshman advising. In short, the advisors are excellent advisors, if you are properly matched with the right one. As a pre-medical student, I was matched with a music teacher originally. Because of her shortcomings in knowledge of the courses I need to take for my major, I was closed out of a necessary freshman course. After that, I requested a switch and received an amazing advisor who is on the pre-medical committee.
that i would have to take an english class despite my transfer credits
You've got to love the cold, and be ready to work with other, at least if you and engineer.
art, mostly ceramics and glass also we are known for our engineerring programs
My school was very small. It allowed for me to build real relationships with my peers and teachers. I recieve more personal attention when I was atteding my school than I would have at a larger university. The isolated loation was hard to adjust to at first but then I realized that it helped to keep me focused on my personal goals.
People who lack the creativity to find something to do without being located in civilization should not attend Alfred University. The most common complaint I hear about Alfred is that it is located in the middle of nowhere and there is nothing to do. The part about Alfred being the middle of nowhere is true, but what is not true is that there is nothing to do. With a little bit of creativity, Alfred is full of things to do. Without that creativity, it's true there are no shopping malls, movies, etc.
The creativity in Alfred is amazing. A lot of my professors are well known artists who come here to teach because of the great art facilities and prestige of the art department. It's also obvious that the professors care about the students' creative growth and technical skill. I know when I graduate I will have a strong portfolio that highlights both my abilities and personal vision.
The most frustrating thing about my school is the weather. It's so cold for so long!
