Time management is key! With so many options for how to spend your time between academics, extra curricular activities and plain human maintenance it can become difficult to find the space for everything in a day and quickly become overwhelmed. Simple tricks like making daily schedules or to do lists can help ease the anxiety that so often comes with big life changes.
The tree forts in the woods by the Ade parking lot. During the fall when the leaves are full, you can see out onto the campus but are completely covered high up in the trees!
The diversity. The community of Alfred achieves a remarkable thing with its ability to wrap every individual in a nonconformist blanket of inclusivity not only during their time here but for life! Alfred University and the residents have succeeded in creating a place with a positive atmosphere that manages to connect people in so many aspects.
