The Foundations class will be taking an overnight trip to NYC on Saturday, September 23rd. We will be spending the time looking at art, eating good food and gathering sights and sounds to bring back to Alfred.

The cost of the trip is $75.00 per person this fee includes: roundtrip bus fare, overnight accommodation and entrance to the Museum of Modern Art.

** the trip fee must be paid by Friday September 15th. You can take a check or cash to the Bursars office which is in the main floor of Seidlin Hall.

Alfred ROCKS!!!!

Looking for something to do this weekend? Come to the Alfred Rocks kick off event!
Alfred Rocks is a new initiative on campus; collect rocks around the village of Alfred, decorate them, and hide them in plain sight around campus for another student to find as a random act of kindness.
This Saturday from 1pm-4pm in the Cohen Barn Studio on Main Street, come decorate a few rocks and enjoy some snacks! All supplies will be provided (including rocks, but feel free to bring your own as well).

I hope to see you there!
