I did the downstate program for school counseling. I spent a week on campus and it was beautiful.

So far I am very satisfied with all my professors and classes in Alfred University. I look forward to furthering my education in Alfred University, and pray I can pass my licensing exam and go on to become a License Mental Health Counselor. I am so excited!

The professors are wonderful, but the town may or may not suck out your soul. If you're only there for your education, then go there for the great program.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

I am currently enrolled in Alfred University, but I graduated with my bachelors degree from College of Staten Island. I feel honored to be chosen as a student in Alfred University because the staff is helpful, and always available to assist with any questions students may have. The professors are skilled professionals which share true stories they have encountered through the years. Also, they make the classes very interactive; along with students feeling welcomed and feeling a pleasant atmosphere. I am mastering in Counseling and it feels great to role play after learning new skills because skills are being exercise and questions can be answered if students need help in starting the engagement process. I am looking forward to completing my education to help those people in need, and work with a team of professionals as the professors teaching the program.

Pros are specific research area gives the advantage in advancing to career field. Cons are that the village is too small for networking.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2009

The graduate program of Literacy at Alfred University was one that truly pushed and motivated me to become the teacher I am today. The rigorous course of study greatly prepared me for the diversity of classroom management and curriculum that have significantly shaped my success as a teacher, receiving a highly effective evaluation on the recently incorporated teacher evaluation process. The Literacy departments ability and know-how of networking, ensured I was employed in the field that I desired the instant I graduated. The only negative aspect of my Alfred University experience lies within their ability to provide student aid. Being an expensive private liberal arts university, the aid they provided was not one that would merit a middle class citizen to afford.
