End of semester is fast approaching

Finals week is fast approaching. It is important to not get behind in your work because at this time of the semester it seems to be constantly piling up. It is very easy to get really overwhelmed during this time, but the school offers some opportunities to the students in order for them to perform during finals week to the best of their abilities. First off, today they are offering a free presentation for students to attend about finals week. The presentation is being held in the Allied Health building at 5:00, presented by Cindy Thorp.

Charlie Brown performance

The ASC Drama Club presented a show over the weekend, "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown". I'm not just saying this, but I think it was one of the best performances I've ever seen at Alfred State. It is a day made up of little tidbits from all the days of Charlie Brown from different seasons and events, and all based on the original comic strips. Drama club picked out the funniest scenes to use! Bravo Drama club!

Gulf Coast – 11/12/10

11/8/10 - It’s our last week here. I’m not sure how I feel about that. The weather has only just gotten amazing the past couple weeks. It’s been in the 60s during the day, and pushing the lower 40s at night. The sky has been perfectly cloudless, and the sun feels good enough to take an afternoon nap in. It feels like the North East September that I was so sad to miss, only better, from what I hear.

Beautiful Day!!!

What a crazy fall it has been here in Alfred. The weather was so nice today (almost 60 degrees). Last weekend it snowed and now it is like this? I'm not complaining who doesn't like to be outside. It is supposed to be like this for the rest of the week to, which means no freezing tours for me! That also means that Open House will be nice, sunny, and warm so hopefully people will get a better impression of the college from this one than they did the cold, cloudy last one. If you have the chance and are available to attend I highly recommend it.

Meet Andrew Catlin

Andrew is from Webster, New York and discovered a love for woodworking at the age of 15.  He was inspired by natural building conferences hosted by Peace Weavers in Bath, New York and the YesterMorrow design/build school in Vermont and would like to find a future in natural building and timber framing for himself.

The Alfred "Experience" Continued

The new semester started off with new classes and tons more friends. I also began singing at the U. (Alfred University across the street from Alfred State). I joined the choir and the chamber singers, this was an awesome decision on my part because I began to make friends from the University and a few from the state that also were in the choir, that enjoyed the same extracurricular activities I do.
