Seth enjoys the fact that he and his peers are able to ride their bikes on nearby land that is owned by Alfred State.

After researching Alfred State’s motorcycle and power sports technology program, Seth Cooney decided it was the perfect fit for him.

Like many students, Seth considers himself a hands-on learner. Since enrolling at Alfred State, he has received plenty of real-world, hands-on learning experiences through working on a variety of motorcycles and small vehicles.

“We’re in the lab for four-and-a-half hours each day.”

Seth has already been able to apply what he has learned at Alfred State to the real world. Once when he encountered an issue with his own bike, he immediately knew what to do.

“I had learned how to fix the problem from doing it multiple times in class. It happened to me exactly as it was supposed to and I knew how to fix it.”

In addition to all of the real-world training he is receiving, Seth also enjoys the fact that he and his peers are able to ride their bikes on nearby land that is owned by Alfred State.

“We ride almost every day after class.”

Seth is confident that he’ll be ready to take on the workforce once he graduates. His message to incoming students is simple: “Be ready to learn. Everything is offered to you.”
