I am nonbinary and use they/them pronouns. I am a sophomore here at Alfred studying Spanish and English. With these majors, I hope to become a Spanish/English teacher and travel around South America teaching English. I came to Alfred from New Hampshire in order to have a college experience where collaboration and community are cherished. I look forward to meeting and working with all of you as we continue this journey together.

Hi! I’m Jaylin - English major, avid Harry Potter fan, and by extension a proud Ravenclaw. I enjoy reading just about anything I can get my hands on, as well as writing both professionally and for pleasure. If you need help analyzing a great work or creating one of your own, I’m your girl. I appreciate all kinds of writing and the process in itself, and I look forward to assisting you!

I am a Biomaterials Engineering major. I love math, but I also have a deep appreciation for the importance of words and communication in our society. I enjoy the analytical approach to formal writing, finding a way to connect creative expression with professional intentions. Aside from doing schoolwork, I am an active member of the Alfred University Track and Field team, having formed a passion for triple jumping. (Krissy is on co-op for the spring 2019 semester. She will be back in fall 2019.)

I'm majoring in English. An introvert at heart, I have an uncanny knack for transforming myself into a blanket burrito and have been known to contemplate the many perplexities of the universe for hours on end. When I'm not writing fiction or devouring another novel, I love going on adventures with my dog, Pandora.
