Orientation

We will be welcoming the Class of 2022 on Thursday, August 23rd.

Check out the 2018 Orientation Schedule.


If you're like most new students, you're not sure what to expect. You're probably excited about the quality of the educational experience here, about the lovely campus and about the prospect of making friends for life. At the same time you're probably a little apprehensive about this leap into a whole new community, and all the changes that brings.

I hope you take the time to look through this web site and feel free to contact me to help answer any of the questions you might have. If I don't have the answer I will make sure to find it for you. We are all looking forward to your arrival on campus and hope that it is everything you expect and more.

New for Fall 2018

Pre-Orientation Outdoor Adventure Trips

Spend 2 1/2 days learning about the local outdoor opportunities available at Alfred University and taking a day trip to a nearby ropes adventure course in Ellicotville, NY. For more information please review this flyer. Registration is open for these trips by emailing ordway@alfred.edu.

Common Ground

Alfred is characterized by diversity in various forms; this ground we share is home to artists and engineers, students from small towns and big cities, people who see the world from a range of race, class, and gender perspectives. This year, all students who are new to Alfred University will be participating in our Common Ground program. Students will meet in small groups with a faculty or staff member to share a meal and to engage in conversations about who we are and what it means to come together as a community.

We'll See You Soon!
