Since the 2010-2011 academic year, the Foundation has provided $5,000 annually to the college’s peer tutoring program. As a result, the program has fulfilled more than 450 student requests over the last three years, providing more than 2,650 hours of support.
Taking place Wednesday, March 29 at the Bath-Haverling High School, 25 Ellas Ave., Bath, the program will be held from 9-11 a.m. for school personnel, area professionals, educators/prevention providers; from 1-3 p.m. for law enforcement, probation officers, first responders, and fire departments; and from 6-7:30 p.m. for community members/parents.
The Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) recently hosted seven Alfred State students at the 16th annual Appalachian Teaching Project (ATP) symposium in Washington, DC.
“We run this as an annual event cooperatively with the Career Development Center to offer opportunities for students to learn about career pathways,” said Electrical Trades Department Chair Jeff Stevens. “It shows our students the choices they have as graduates of Alfred State.”
“Bus driver, faculty member, ISA, administrator, cleaner, tutor, coach, let’s make it a point to open doors for our students,” President Dr. Skip Sullivan said.
Stevens-Gupta’s solo exhibition, “Winter Escape: Color Me Happy,” includes 25 paintings ranging in size from 10 inches by 10 inches to 48 inches by 48 inches. The exhibit is on display now through March 3, and is open for viewing during normal library hours.
Finding a job after graduating from college doesn’t have to be a challenge. In some career fields, employers cannot fill positions quickly enough, as the number of openings is much greater than the number of qualified, college-educated candidates available.
“The success of our students and ways for us to further support their development, those are the sort of events that mean the most to me when looking back at the year,” stated President Dr. Skip Sullivan. “I want to congratulate the students, faculty, staff, and alumni who all made incredible contributions to the college in 2016.”
Thanks to 680 donors, Alfred State greatly surpassed its goals for its inaugural Day of Giving on Nov. 29.
