Jet, Terra Cotta, Nana's – The restaurants in town are cheap and all of them have excellent food. Only downside is they can be crowded and service gets backed up.

Great Place to Go to School – Alfred University is a great place to go to school. The faculty are very willing to help you and Alfred's reputation for producings well trained students will help in the long run for getting a job.

HAT Transit Bus – The HAT bus drives to Hornell and back every few hours so that students can go to wegmans/walmart to get their groceries and stuff.

Ceramic Engineering at AU – Very specialized program. I like it. I've learned a lot. Lots of work with lots of reward. Many jobs available in this field right now.

Al Fresco Joels House – Joels house is a common interrest house which is absolutely awesome. People group upi and cook meals together which makes the house smell really good, and the long walk to class gets you in shape.

$95 for students for full year. There could be more parking, but its usually pretty easy to find a spot close to your building.

Beautiful campus! Brick buildings mostly. 2 beautiful libraries. 2 dining halls. Nice classrooms and lots of new labs. Great vibe and beautiful setting.

Everybody here just wants to get drunk to the point of death, smoke like crazy and the parties are lame, repetitive and boring.
College Junior 2012-03-26T01:01:26Z
The Food Is Disgusting – The food is just bad, no variety, unhealthy, old, my body just cannot function on the dining hall food, there are one or two decent restaurants around, but that's it.
College Junior 2012-03-26T00:59:05Z
Boring and Sad – There is nothing here, it is so isolated, boring, empty and just depressing. This place sucks
College Sophomore 2012-03-25T15:27:59Z
LOVE IT – They offer alot of academic programs and they have good reviews on the programs and excellent professors. Everyone on campus is very helpful and considerate, you can make alot of friends and meet alot of different people.
College Sophomore 2012-03-25T15:22:29Z
The dining hall is spacious and the local places have good food. The food is okay but could be better although, they have alot of selection.

So, I come here, expecting an academic facility and academic enrichment... Well, it didn't turn out that way. If you like to be a swinger (relationship wise), have nothing to do other than sit on your computer and type reviews like myself, and like to hear your food singing to you in your stomach after you eat at the caff, then this is the number one place for you. I will mention though that some of the professors are exceptional. Granted, some people might like this institution and this could just be my preference, but when I pay as much as I pay here to attend I would hope that there would be more money going into upgrading academic facilities rather than supplying people with the latest lube and condoms. It's whatever though... And alfred... If your listening, please do something to make LIFE INTERESTING!!! I find myself walking aimlessly down the only street hoping that there would be something college like to do.

Alfred Universty is in the small town of Alfred (Alfred has a single red light). The school is very aware of the limited places in town for students and provides at no charge weekend buses every two hours to the city of Hornell 20 minutes away where there is much more to do.

Club Sports – Many people do not have time to be on a divison team and though they may enjoy watching thier teams compete they still would perferr to be in the action. Alfred Universty has a club sport for every true team they have and even club sports for teams they dont have. These club sports are very easy to get into and work well in a busy scheduale. They are also a great way to stay in shape and meet some new friends.

Scholes V.S. Herrick – Herrick is the designated library for the liberal arts college. The ITS (technolgy service) is located on the lower floor and all the equipment found in herrick is very up to date and kept in excellent condtion. Scholes on the other hand is the library desginated for the Schools of Art and Enginering there computers are very out of date and the printers are useally out of service.

you'll want to get outta here – Unless you're a local, I don't see a reason to come here (unless you're an engineer or art student). It's way to isolated, the weather sucks, the people get old and boring and seem to forget they're in "college". If you like small environment, football, drinking and hooking up, this is the place for you. It has a good program oriented towards engineering, but even that can't make me stay here for another year. I hate it here, but it might be different for you, I think going to a state school is the better option. It is what it is.

A for Effort – Alfred is in the middle of nowhere. The nearest grocery store (besides the Dollar Tree) is thirty minutes away. So if you have a car you would think you would be stranded and lost in the vast nothingness that consumes the itty bitty town of Alfred. However, the town does a great job providing an easy to comprehend schedule for buses to take you to and from Hornell for all of your shopping and grocery needs.
College Junior 2012-01-17T22:24:39Z
A number of the buildings on campus have been around since it opened. The student service center is in an old, renovated castle, which is pretty awesome. The dorms could use some updating, and there have been a number of issues with technological services---like shoddy wireless service and temperamental public computers. Overall the campus is absolutely beautiful, but there isn't much to do otherwise because, in Alfred, the colleges ARE THE TOWN. Literally.

Health & Safety:
Pretty Perfect – The University does a great job keeping us all safe. I have never felt endangered walking the campus at night. Public Safety patrols everywhere and has officers join student staff at club-funded events like concerts and specialty shows. The only downfall is the "beef" between Alfred State and Alfred University. Sharing the dissected plateau's common areas in town seems to be a little difficult for some and has caused some problems in the past. And sometimes I feel as though gaining entry to the dorms is way too easy, but overall I feel super safe here.

Whiteys Mostly – AU is a small school and the majority of kids are white. However, there are other ethnicities present and our activities director created an award winning diversity club/class (drawn to diversity)

Alfred is a very small town, there is one restaurant, a coffee house, a pizza place and a japanese cafe on main street. But if you're looking for something more, you'll have to drive at least twenty minutes out of Alfred.

Health & Safety:
I never feel unsafe while on campus or in town. My boyfriend lives on the other side of campus so I walk frequently on a back bike path all the way across campus, still I have no concerns while walking by myself.
College Junior 2012-01-06T00:34:39Z
The permit cost was a bit expensive, but you can park almost anywhere around campus. Parking is a little sparse around the dorms, but otherwise it's good. Technically you don't need a car, with your ID you can ride the bus to the nearest chain grocery stores, and there's a mom and pop grocery shop just off campus, called Kinfolk. A car is really only needed if you live close enough to visit family. Everything on campus is within walking distance. If you just want to get around campus, a bike is better, and there are bike hubs everywhere on campus!

Not a Whole Lot, but It's All Delicious – It's a very small school, in a very small town. So the choices are very limited, but I suppose that just means that each place has to try harder to get students to come in, instead of driving to the next town over. I have never had an iced chai latte quite like the one at Terracotta, and nothing can beat the soba noodles in Nana's Japanese cafe, who has a board with advertisements in the restaurant. The best one was her offering to teach Japanese. The Jet is the go to place when you have your parents over. I'm not flush with cash, being in college, but I can eat at any one of these, and what makes it better is that everything is within a five minute walk.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
