Dear Friends of Alfred State College,


    It's hard to believe, but summer flew by and the semester is already half over!

    The campus teemed with activity throughout the summer, beginning with the celebration of our 100th commencement ceremony, to breaking ground for the Center for Organic and Sustainable Agriculture to rehabbing the Allied Health Building to beginning construction on our new Student Leadership Center. The college also hosted a week-long business boot camp for disabled American veterans (which provided housing and meals) as well as a week-long leadership training program for high school students.

    Atlantic Richfield (a BP-affiliated company) transferred the wetland treatment system site to the Educational Foundation, Inc. ASC's School of Applied Technology in Wellsville, which is owned by the Ed Foundation, sits on the site of the former Sinclair refinery. AR's innovative wetland treatment system uses natural processes to finish the job of cleaning groundwater.

    Other items of note: Alfred State appeared on the US News and World Report's list of top public colleges for the fifth consecutive year; groups of our faculty, staff, and students have been spending the last several weekends helping with flood-relief efforts in the Binghamton area; and local citizen Charlie Joyce was awarded the President's Medallion at the recent President's Society Dinner in honor of his unwavering support of the College.

    Each day brings exciting activities to campus....stay tuned!


    Warm regards,


    John M. Anderson, Ph.D.
    President, Alfred State College 

Charles Joyce Honored by Alfred State College
