If I knew what I know now about college I would have told myself to relax. People will like you and you will do just as well in college as you did in high school, if not better. Take care of yourself.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

My advise to parents an students about choosing a college is to find something you have a passion for and then just follow your heart. If you listen to your heart you can't go wrong. don't choose a school just because of one thing take all aspects into account. How good is the program you are intrested in. What is the campus setting like and would you fit into it. How are your grades based on the accepted students grades. If you can't see yourself there or see yourself getting accepted there then back away. Your heart is telling you no. Make sure you look at every aspect of the college or university. Know what it has to offer. You want to know as much as possible before you make your decision. Sometimes colleges may say they have a certain activity but it is not currently active. This can lead to disappointment and second guessing of your college choice. Know what your getting into and in time you will know you have made the right decition.

What's unique about your campus?

THe best part about Alfred State is the hands on learning. The first week i was there i went out in the field and began to survey. This expirence helped me to find out immediately that this major and school was right for me.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

This school is in the middle of no where. There is no other town for seven miles and thats if you consiter Hornell to be a big thing. There is a lack of culture, ie plays, musicals, concerts etc, here.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would advise parents and/or students to let the student decide where he/she wants to go. As a student I go to Alfred because it is a good basic education for half the price as going to a big prestigious school. Alfred is excellent to get the general required courses out of the way and then transfer to a well-known school for a masters degree. To make the most out of your college experience, I would suggest that the student be yourself and make your life the way you want it to be. College is like a fresh start and allows the student to start their life any way they want.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Any kind of person who wants a good basic education. There are many types of people that go to this school, it's very diverse

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

When finding the right college always go to an orientation or college visit, if available. I know when i attended my orientation at SUNY Alfred it was very helpful and allowed me to make my decision final. i was able to view the college life, see where i would live and see where activities are held and what goes on. Also ask questions.... when i visited my college for the first time my father asked tons of question to make sure it was a comfortable and suitable place to put his "little girl." The questions help and also teach you on what your going to expect for your school year, so there's no surprises.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

i have to say the weekends. A normal weekend consists of studying during the day and hanging out with a few friends at night. Everyone leaves during the weekend so no ones really there to socialize with.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Before you choose a college, make sure you visit it. Make sure the surrounding area is a place you can be comfortable in and find things to do. Campus life is just as important as academics. The student will need to be comfortable away from home and be able to fit in. Also, look into all the social programs they have to see if there is anything the student would enjoy. Social life and academics should mix well so that the student can get the most out of their college experience. Having a private tour of the college with an actual student is always helpful. I also suggest having a meeting with the faculty in charge of the students area of interest.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Anyone that isn't willing to work or try hard or focus should not come here. This isn't a college to party and let loose. You're learning skills that will help you in the real world. So be prepared to work hard.

Alfred State College is a great college experience, providing students with the "total package"!

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would suggest that students not make such a big hype of the "experience." It is going to be exactly what you make of it. I suggest not getting carried away with fraternities/sororities for a fear of getting behind in your studies. This is the beginning of what the rest of your life will be. I take my college life very serious, because of what I pay. Do not take anything for granted.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

There is absolutely no off campus housing unless you are 24 years or older, in a frat or a sorority, have a dependant--so on.
