    The Alfred University Service Learning Program and Colleges Against Cancer Club have been working with Alfred State students on the annual Relay for Life fundraiser. Relay for Life is a team event organized by the American Cancer Society which raises money for cancer research and treatments. https://secure.acsevents....
    Relay for Life will take place on Saturday, April 14th at Alfred State College from 12:00pm-12:00am. This 12-hour celebration honors the lives that we have lost as well as those who have been affected by cancer. Teams will set up and decorate a spot in the Alfred State College gym. During the event, one person from each team is required to be walking at all times. Activities will continue throughout the event, including the survivors' lap, music, dancing, games, and fundraisers.
    I hope you will consider joining our event: Relay for Life is a great community service opportunity, all funds will support a good cause, and the event will be a fun time for all! Start a Relay for Life team or sign up as a participant of a team at https://secure.acsevents....;jsessionid=00000000.app331b?NONCE_TOKEN=EECBB8A2640C5EA76C07DAB104FBC97E&pagename=relay and then start fundraising!
    Please spread the word among your students, athletes, advisees, club members, etc. We are attempting to involve as many students and faculty from Alfred University as possible. We may potentially host this event in the future. Please feel free to contact me at gcw1@alfred.edu with any questions regarding the event.

    Dear Alfred University student employees:

    Happy New Year! I hope that your final assignments and exams for the fall term ended up going well that you have been able to enjoy some well-deserved down time with your family and friends during the holidays.

    This note is to let you know that effective January 1, 2018 the student wage will increase to $10.00 per hour. These rates are in effect during the academic semesters when classes are in session (including breaks between fall and spring semesters and includes summer semesters if the student worker is taking classes). While the State of New York establishes minimum hourly pay rates, students working for a college or university that they are attending are not covered by these minimum hourly pay rates.

    As a reminder, the maximum number of hours that students are eligible to work is 20 hours per week from all University positions, including food service. Strict adherence to the weekly limit will be enforced.

    Thank you for your ongoing work on behalf of our University and best wishes for a great 2018.

    The style of our online portraits is going to be a departure from the standard, studio-formal "head/shoulders shot." At the recommendation of the branding/marketing consultants, we are going to be taking "environmental" portraits that provide more visual interest, a more contemporary impression and if possible, an interesting aspect of your personality.

    Ideally, these portraits should be taken in a building where you either teach or have your office. Though these may involve a classroom/lab setting, these will not be in-action classroom shots, nor will they necessarily be in your office, since offices don't always offer the amount of room we need. It may even be a hallway or entranceway in your building.

    When you email us to schedule your portrait, we strongly encourage you give some thought and to provide us with your feedback regarding specifically what area in your building will provide the light we need. We want to use natural light (near windows) whenever possible, though if necessary we will supplement the lighting, hence the need for space.

    Updated faculty photo portraits are going to be taking place over the next 4 weeks, and you are requesting everyone on campus to participate in this very important component of Alfred University's new marketing plan. It is a big project and we need your full cooperation.

    How to schedule? Email Jen Guarasci (guarascij@alfred.edu) with three specific days/times that work for you. Jen will then coordinate the requests, produce a schedule and then email you with the confirmed day/time for the session.

    What to wear? These are official portraits, the composition of which can include the subject (you) from the waist up, so "smart business casual" up to "business professional" is the dress code. If some aspects of your choice of clothing is bright and colorful, that is perfectly acceptable (and encouraged). If you have questions, please include those when emailing to schedule your session.

    Time needed? We are scheduling 30-minute blocks of time

    The photographers: Rick McLay, Director of Creative Services and Zach Lyman, the new Multimedia Production Specialist.
