For over a century, Alfred University (AU) has provided extensive academic offerings.
AU has undergraduate degree programs in:
- Athletic Training
- Business Administration
- Communications Studies
- Environmental Studies
- Mechanical Engineering
Additionally, graduate degree programs are offered in Counseling, Engineering, Fine Arts, School Psychology, and more. Special summer camps and courses are available as well.
The university places a great emphasis on undergraduate research and international opportunities through internships and study abroad programs. To enhance learning and research, AU makes sure that its facilities are equipped with updated technology. It also has two impressive libraries with a wealth of academic resources for its students.
All that, and the university still makes it a priority to reduce its impact on the environment through advanced energy-saving and sustainability measures and upgrades.
Beyond academics, AU has dozens of clubs and organizations in which students can participate. College life presents students with the chance to involve themselves in activities such as: athletics, campus living, equestrian programs, performing arts, and spiritual groups.
Admissions to AU are selective, and many factors are considered:
- Difficulty of coursework completed
- Extracurricular activities
- Personal essay
- Recommendation letters
- Standardized test scores
AU does charge an application fee for admission. According to school statistics, the majority of undergraduates are receiving some type of financial aid from federal, state, private, and institutional sources.
67% of students gave Alfred University 5 stars overall.
I think the surrounding town takes a lot away from what incoming students expect from the college experience, which is not controllable. The school itself, however, could do a better job of stimulating students by spending more on concerts and events. The social life is not stimulating outside of athletics.
