Alfred University Visit Report by FlippersMom
Information Session: Yes - Info session took place in the campus center auditorium by a member of the admissions staff. It was a bit too long, but then all of the schools we visited seemed to drag these introductions out.
Campus Tour: Yes - We chose the engineering tour since my son was considering AU for its engineering school. Tour guide was a senior in the materials science degree program. Thought she was genuine and honest.
Campus Visit Notes for Alfred University
The highlight of our tour was meeting one of the engineering professors in the digital fabrication & rapid prototyping lab. He was eager to talk to our group about his field, what students do in the lab, what research is currently happening, etc. He was very personable and "down to earth." We took some time after our formal tour to look around campus more. I loved seeing student works of art found all around campus, both inside and outside.
