The math program here is tough but very enjoyable especially with the relationships developed with other students in the field and also professors. The workload is hard but assistance is always available. There are many opportunities to go further in the program, such as "math talks" and club activities, as well as helping other students by tutoring.

The math major is a tough thing to go into. The classes feel like they are going fast, but this is just because they are very thorough and student involved. Teachers are very understanding and will work with you virtually anytime outside of class. They will help you re-learn what you didn't understand in the lecture material, and help you through the homework. My career goals are to be a middle/ high school teacher in mathematics. This college is very persuasive in using the career development center, and the education department gets you really prepared to go out there and get an education position.

The foundations art program is hard to get accustomed to, because the materials you use are reduced to cardboard and paper mache in many cases. The project criteria is hard to determine and it seems impossible to please the professors. However, now that I have completed the program I realize that my ability to experiment and problem solve has been strengthened. The program takes quite a bit of patience but with hard work it is very rewarding. The faculty and upperclassmen in the art program are very approachable and interested in collaboration, which greatly helps with networking.

Honestly, I loved my program. My mentor was incredibly helpful and supportive, my adviser was knowledgeable, and my peers were so willing to work together and share their skills! My only complaint was that the facilities are sort of out-dated, which made some classes difficult, but overall, the experience and faculty were great. I took one year off after graduating, and will be entering graduate school in the fall for a doctorate in Psychology (Animal Behavior). I have no concerns with finding a job. Biology in general is a field where jobs are pretty readily available if you're qualified for them. There are a ton of graduate school programs, too. Also, my experience at Alfred allowed me to network with people at conferences and through my personal relationships with my professors (who they know at other universities, research facilities, alma maters, etc.).

For the Art & Design program at Alfred University, you are required to put together a portfolio of your previous work in addition to your typical college admissions essay. The process is relatively easy if you have a wide selection of work, but you must be sure that you include all that is asked for, including several drawings from observation. You can either send in your portfolio on a CD with a slidelist, or upload your portfolio online.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
