The college community is deeply saddened to announce the passing of Eric Michael Green. Eric, previously reported missing, was located in Almond, NY. At this time, the evidence shows no foul play.

“Eric and the Green family have been part of our community for many years and we mourn his loss” said Alfred State Interim President Valerie Nixon. “We would like to thank all of those who expressed concerns since the moment Eric was reported missing.”
