Looking Back: Class of 2018

At Alfred, we're proud of each and every one of our students for stepping inside their uncomfort zones and challenging themselves academically and as unique individuals. With yet another school year well underway, we're taking a look back again at some of our stars from the class of 2018 and celebrating their journeys beyond Alfred.

Family Weekends

Fall and Spring Family Weekends are times for families to come visit our campus and experience college through their student’s eyes and for students to show their families why they love Alfred!  From being a "student for a day" to exploring the stars at night, we have many fun activities for the entire family.
