Ultimately, we know that the campus atmosphere will look different for everyone involved and this will likely generate many emotions ranging from excitement to concern. Each of these feelings are understandable and appropriate. We have established these protocols and guidelines because we believe we can keep Alfred State College campus fully in-person in a way that prioritizes the health of our community. While circumstances may change, and different guidelines may be necessary to introduce, we are committed to always putting safety first and to communicating with you about our decisions and the bases for them.
