For nearly 200 years our valley campus has kindled an ideal environment to ignite potential and change lives. We give students an uncommon set of top-ranked programs. Mix and match courses in the sciences and engineering, in the arts, in psychology, performing arts and business to tailor your education to your aspirations and develop the skills you need to succeed. Here, innovation and technology meet wilderness trails and Baja buggy challenges. The people, the town, the hills and sunset views, the lush summers and crystal winters contribute to the magic of this place – a place alive with a can-do attitude we all share and carry into the world wherever we go. This place makes us who we always wanted to be. Alfred University. Outside of Ordinary.
