Pioneer Quotes

"I chose Alfred State because I got big school opportunities at a small college. Alfred provides everything a larger school such as Binghamton or Buffalo offer but in a more homey environment. I love that my professors actually know me. I'm not a number, I'm not the blonde girl who sits in the second row. Here, the professors know who I am and that provides for a lot of accountability to make sure I'm in class and doing every assignment to my full ability. The biggest thing is that I can walk into almost any professor's office and ask for help and they will give it!" -Kylie Buchek, '18

"I wanted to come here because of the small campus and because Alfred feels like a home away from home. Also the teachers are here for you and your education, not for their paycheck." -Marissa Sly, '18
