After traveling more than 2,300 miles in nine days in a 1953 Dodge Power Wagon tow truck, a group of five Alfred State students and one professor arrived in Santa Monica, CA June 28, officially finishing The Great Race.
Dr. Skip Sullivan, president of Alfred State, said the incredible work by faculty and staff on a regular basis is certainly the driving factor behind the action of Middle States to find the college in compliance with all 14 standards set forth by the commission.
Attending the groundbreaking were representatives of elected officials, faculty and staff, students, and local government and community leaders.
Danielle White, newly appointed executive director of IA, said, “We are thrilled with the success of Alfred State’s Inaugural Golf Tournament and want to thank all of our players, Athletics, volunteers, and our sponsors, including our two event sponsors, Auxiliary Campus Enterprises and Services, Inc., and Pathfinder Engineers & Architects LLP.”
Danielle White, of Hornell, has been appointed the new executive director of Institutional Advancement at Alfred State, effective July 2.
“Alfred State, as a college of technology, is excited about hosting the STEM Summer Institute and we look forward to another successful event connecting K-12 and college faculty on best practices,” said Dr. Craig Clark, dean of Applied Technology and Summer Institute co-chair.
Offered on Thursdays beginning June 25, Instant Decision Days will run until Aug. 13 for students who are interested in attending the fall 2015 semester. Prospective students can have their application reviewed, tour the campus, and meet with an admissions counselor to learn of the admissions decision all in the same day.
Recognized at the college’s employee recognition banquet were Beth Weber, Rachel Smith, William Wesche, Mike Ronan, and Troy Morehouse.
This year’s recipients were Brent Kelley, Belfast, assistant professor in the Culinary Arts Department and Terry Palmiter, Alfred Station, assistant professor in the Architecture and Design Department.
Five Alfred State students this month will compete in a cross-country rally that pits teams against the clock and one another for the chance to win a $50,000 grand prize.
