“Alfred State was close to home. I visited other colleges such as RIT and UB, but I didn't receive the same welcoming feeling as I did from Alfred. I enjoyed the smaller class sizes and was able to really create a relationship with my professors. I would recommend Alfred State’s mechanical engineering program to everyone.” -Skip Giverson, '14
