Pioneer Quotes

"Alfred State students bring professional engagement to prospective employers." -Michele Browning, senior employment specialist, The Guthrie Clinic

“In my four years as a student at Alfred State, the lessons and knowledge I have learned for marketing and business administration have been both beneficial and applicable in real world business opportunities. Through networking at Alfred State, I was able to receive an offer to be a state marketing representative intern at Hurricane Junior Golf Tour in Jacksonville, Florida. This is the nation’s largest junior golf tour. All of my learnings at Alfred State allowed me to be comfortable with the tasks I was given and helped make me successful in other areas of the company as well. The professors and classmates are always there to help out when needed. Alfred State has a great Business Department that truly brings out the best in each of their students.” -Tyler Landries, '16
