Stay Safe. Respond to Outdoor Warning Siren

Alfred State College has outdoor warning sirens. In the event of life-threatening emergencies, Alfred State will activate the outdoor warning siren.

Any emergency that causes ASC to sound its alarm also has the potential to affect people on our campus. If and when you hear the siren, you should immediately return to a known safe, indoor location. Information about the emergency, including instructions about what to do, will be communicated via E2Campus . If possible, other methods will be used including WALF broadcasts and postings on entrance doors to academic and residence hall buildings.

If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Public Safety at 607-871-2108.

Get Out and Register to Vote

Alfred University stands behind the idea that we all benefit when a greater share of Americans register and vote. This year there will be an important general election on Nov. 6, 2012. If you are not already registered to vote, please consider doing so now.

Alfred University students often have a choice of registering and voting right here in Allegany County (if you have been a resident in your present address for at least 30 days before the election) or voting by absentee ballot in your home county or state. The choice is yours, but please plan to register and vote on Nov. 6.

You can download the registration form and get more information about voting in New York State, including instructions on how to vote by absentee ballot, at this Web site maintained by the NYS Board of Elections: www.elections.ny.gov.

Please make sure that to register to vote, you must complete the form, print it out, sign it, and mail it to the county's Board of Election. If you do not want to print the form online. You can also pick up a paper copy of NYS Voter Registration forms at Special Academic Services, Herrick Library, Scholes Library, Powell Information Desk and the Office of Residence Life.

For information about other states' registration deadlines and absentee ballot request deadlines you can visit www.canivote.org or www.turbovote.org.
