Aloha! I'm Tracy Valentine, Assistant Director of Admissions at Alfred University. No, I’m not from Hawaii, I grew up a short drive from Alfred and have always been amazed by the unique nature of the campus.
I describe Alfred University as small yet worldly. There is a constant stream of people from around the globe filtering through our community. As well as our students traveling the world for various reasons doing amazing things!
Oh, and be prepared to make lifelong friendships here at AU. It happens a lot.
“If you aren’t having fun, you are doing it wrong” – keep this in mind for the college admission process…it may seem overwhelming, but it will all work out– I promise!
