Picture This

A beautifully unique campus that houses everything from an equestrian center to an actual castle. Nearly 400 acres of recreational land between the foothills of the Allegheny Mountains and the Finger Lakes. Neighboring cities with exceptional career and internship opportunities. And the quaint, historic Village of Alfred. As a Saxon, every day here can be as comforting or as outside-of-ordinary as you wish.
