Alfred University alumni began trickling into the Village of Alfred Thursday for the 2017 Alumni Reunion, but the annual weekend celebration of all things Saxon began in earnest today.

Symbolizing the kick-off of the 2017 reunion, at least a dozen alumni, joined by Alfred University faculty and staff members, cycled into the village and onto campus early Friday afternoon after spending the evening in Hornell. Many of the alumni cyclists began the trip in Geneva-on-the-Lake, Ohio, earlier in the week, staying in Erie, Pa., and in Letchworth State Park on their way to Alfred.

The intrepid travelers were greeted at the King Alfred statue by Alfred University President Mark Zupan and AU students, as the 2017 Alumni Reunion shifted in high gear.
