Hello Post-Freshmen!

We just want to thank you ALL for a great year. We hope that you all have come to think of Alfred as a supportive environment rich with learning, friendship, and new adventures! We saw all of you take risks, have successes, and become an important part of our community.

Have a wonderful summer and a happy sophomore year.

This is the time where we switch the blog and welcome the new students… but nothing from your year will be deleted… you’ll always find the pictures and messages that we posted here if you ever need them!

—Michelle, Angie and Kat

Tomorrow and Next Week!

Hello Students!

Tomorrow is a free work period for you.  We will not be meeting as a class.  Michelle will be posting the Final Review Schedule + the work lists on the blog soon so please make sure to check before the end of the day Friday for your scheduled time and what to bring.  All final reviews will happen in Cohen.  We will not be holding classes as normal next week.  Monday and Tuesday you are only responsible for showing up for your review time ( remember to be there at least 15 mins early to set up your work) for the remainder of the week attendance is mandatory.  Everyone must participate in final clean up and help with show installation.  In the meantime finish your final projects and begin to remove your finshed work,personal belongings and materials from the studio — many things are lost or destroyed by accident at this time of year

Next week:

Monday:  Reviews from 8 – 11

Tuesday: Reviews from 8-11

Wednesday:  Final Clean up of Harder Hall and Cohen Studios

Thursday: Install show

Friday: Install Show

Opening is Friday the 29th from 4-7 pm.
