At AU, our students are encouraged to make fun and exciting things happen, and our student leaders gain great skills as a result. We like empowering students to go out and make a difference in the Alfred community and beyond.

Bring your ideas to Alfred University. We'll help you make them happen!

Leadership Opportunities

  • Student Senate is our governing body, responsible for allocating thousands of dollars to clubs and organizations. Every year students can run for office or serve on a variety of standing and ad hoc governance committees.
  • The Student Activities Board selects top talent for the annual Large Act Concert, including Gym Class Heroes and Maroon 5. Students run the green room and interact with the performers.
  • Peer Educators initiate and lead programs to improve campus health and safety.
  • Student Athlete Advisory Council represents athletic teams to discuss issues ranging from NCAA policies to campus facility questions.
  • Students organize and run Hot Dog Day, an event that attracts thousands to Alfred every year, and raises money for local charities.
  • We encourage students to create programs and events that improve student life at AU. Our annual Student Innovation Award recognizes (and gives cash to) those leaders.
