Experience Alfred

We invite you to discover the magic of Alfred University and learn more about its academics, its history and its tradition of producing bright, creative graduates, against the backdrop of the 2019 MostArts Festival. Each year, we host MostArts, a weeklong series of outstanding classical music performances, events and competitions.

The two-day agenda will include introductions to AU programs and courses, the opportunity to learn about AU from President Mark Zupan and Vice President of Enrollment Management Brian Dalton, as well as tours of the campus and other informative sessions. We hope to show you demonstrations of hot glass blowing and demonstrations in our engineering facilities. You will also have the opportunity to attend, on a complimentary basis, any of the MostArts events that pique your interest.
