“Clubs and organizations are so beneficial to your growth as a student, as a human being.”
Like many Alfred State students, Robert Mahany’s education extends outside the classroom walls.
As an intern at a Tonawanda-based mechanical contractor, he was able to get hands-on project management experience, which he also received this summer at an internship in Washington, DC with a leading international infrastructure group. Whether he’s learning the theory or putting it into practice, Robert knows he is being prepared well for the next step after graduation.
“The stuff that we do in class relates 100 percent to the job. We learn what to do and then we get to go out there and do it, and that’s the fun part.”
Robert is also able to enhance his education through his involvement on campus as captain of the men’s soccer team, a resident assistant, an Emerging Pioneers Leadership Program graduate, a leadership assistant, and a member of the Alfred Programming Board.
“Clubs and organizations are so beneficial to your growth as a student, as a human being, and I think everyone should dive into them and enjoy them and have fun.”
