“I’m a girl working in what people think of as a man’s field, but I’ve never let that define me,” says Avoca resident Emily Slayton. “I found a lot of respect and support at Alfred State.”

Emily discovered her talent for welding in high school and chose Alfred State because she wanted an education that would give her the experience she needed to be confident entering the field.“I didn’t just want the piece of paper. I wanted a good degree with an in-depth education and real experience. I wanted to spend more time under the hood rather than just rushing through the theory. And we have really awesome professors who come from all walks of life and different trades. When we do get out in the real world, we’ll definitely be more prepared for it.”

"Online classes are different. They offer a lot of flexibility. I can sit down at the end of the nightshift and work on them. Or during a lunch break, I can sit down for a half an hour and work on a discussion board. It takes a lot of self-discipline, but it’s really great for someone who has a busy schedule."

Lisa Reynolds will be the first to tell you, nursing wasn't her first choice. In fact, she had a lot of conflicting ideas about what to do with her life before entering college.

“To be honest, I sort of fell into nursing as a major. I looked at a lot of schools, thought about pre-med, law enforcement, everything. In high school I considered psychology as well,” Lisa says. Today she’s a 2013 graduate of the nursing bachelor’s degree program at Alfred State, and she’s working in the dynamic field of psychiatric nursing at one of the largest hospitals in Binghamton, N.Y.

Mechanical Engineering Technology (BS), '10

For Taylor Battaglia, the hands-on learning he received at Alfred State was invaluable once he entered the workforce.

“I think Alfred State really gave me the experience of what it would be like to be working, partially because it wasn’t just sit down, have someone talk at you for an hour,” Taylor said. “It’s one thing to look at it in a textbook, but it’s another thing to actually hold it in your hand. It’s a totally different experience.”
