Favorite Things To Do
Alfred students love a diversion, and they respond enthusiastically to campus events. Any type of artistic spectacle is always well attended. Theater and dance performances usually sell out. Senior Shows in the School of Art & Design (Harder Hall) is the biggest campus-wide event and draws people from all over. There are also more than 100 clubs and organizations on campus, and new ones are formed every year. Some of the most popular organizations are Student Activities Board, the Fiat Lux, AUTV, Disc, and Habitat for Humanity.
Lots of people like to kill time in Powell Campus Center. You can grab a bite and check your email. There's also a big-screen TV downstairs by the mailroom. Students frequently hook their game systems up to it. Generally, Alfred forces you to invent new pastimes. At Alfred, if you're bored, you're not boring—you're normal—but that just means you have to challenge your creative facilities.
