From showcasing amazing student projects to handing out numerous awards, Alfred State College recently recognized the incredible talents and contributions of its students during the first Pioneer Expo.
Altogether, the talents of 25 student clubs and organizations were highlighted in the Pioneer Expo’s showcase portion. With the aid of models, posters, prototypes, and more, the students took Expo attendees step-by-step through their own learning and achievement process when explaining their projects.
As for the awards ceremony, which recognized student contributions to Alfred State over the past year, a total of 27 awards were presented for initiatives surrounding civic engagement, culturally inclusive programs, performing arts, Greek life, student engagement, and more. Prior to the awards presentation, amazing performances were given by the Alfred State Rock Band and Alfred State Voices.
Coordinator of Student Activities Brittany Richards said of the Pioneer Expo, “With this being the first year, there were some hurdles to climb, but I think the event was a success. In fact, I have heard a lot of positive feedback. We definitely have notes to improve for next year, and are always looking for people who might be interested with the planning in the future.”
