Dr. Kristin Poppo, provost at Alfred State, said, “Alfred State is pleased to recognize students who excel in their academic studies. Achieving dean's list recognition is a significant accomplishment in our rigorous degree programs. Congratulations to all and have an equally successful spring semester.”
