“Alfred State totally changed my outlook. I came here very shy. I learned to open up and how to communicate. It even strengthened my family relationships.”

“Alfred State prepared me for the real world. That’s why Zippo invited me back. I really benefited from my time spent here.”

Ray Sova, class of '12

Ray Sova is not a typical student; he thrives on the hands-on education he is pursuing at Alfred State. Ray, an architectural technology student, learns through traditional classes, but he also learns through practicing on real-world problems, starting with his very first semester.

“I was anxious to begin my architectural training, and Alfred State gave me the chance to dive in right out of high school,” Ray said.

Ray also plays varsity baseball, learning “teamwork, sportsmanship, and leadership that you simply cannot learn inside a classroom.” In fall 2009, Ray was given the “Most Dedicated Athlete” award. Ray’s athletics experience demonstrates that project-based learning can be found in every aspect of Alfred State’s culture.
