Fall Edition 2020
After implementing new health and safety measures, Alfred State College reopened and welcomed Pioneers back to campus this fall. We are so proud of our students, faculty, and staff for adapting and delivering on our mission for providing hands-on learning and to help students establish their careers.
We also launched our Major Gifts Campaign this fall. Even amid the ongoing healthcare crisis, we have been excelling and accomplishing great things. These stories will make you proud and perhaps even inspire you to become a life changer.
