P*Net - Alfred State College Parent News

Welcome to P*Net, the Alfred State Parent information source.

It's the final week of classes and finals here at ASC. We hope everyone has had an amazing semester and is preparing to finish strong! Parents and families, are you ready for your students to come home? :)

Instead of hauling everything home ~

#alfredstate Storage solution -- store your things -- don't haul them home!

[04/09/19]   Returning students who file their 2019-20 FAFSA by April 15 are eligible for a drawing to win a set of Apple Air Pods or a $500 book voucher. (If the student completed their FAFSA, they are already in the running for the prizes.) Filing your 2019-20 FAFSA by April 15 gives a head start on getting financial aid finalized and ready to process the fall 2019 bill by the due date to lock in classes for the fall semester. Need help? Make an appointment with a Financial Aid Counselor, phone 607-587-4253.

Best Foot Forward | Alfred State

Today we kick off our Best Foot Forward campaign to help reinforce our expectations about how we act toward and treat one another. Find out more at www.alfredstate.edu/bff

alfredstate.edu The primary goal of Alfred State’s Best Foot Forward initiative is to promote civil, empathic, and respectful communication. To be civil means that you make a good impression and you are thoughtful about how you interact with others.

The Harlem Wizards are coming to Alfred State, Saturday, March 2.
The game will begin at 3:00 PM in the Orvis Activities Center. The afternoon promises to be a fun-filled event that is great for kids and adults, and will guarantee to put a smile on your face! And, best of all it is FREE!!!

The Harlem Wizards have a unique mission: create awe-inspiring events throughout the country. At a Wizards game, fans will witness amazing basketball talent combined with hilarious comedy. Its two hours of family time where parents, grandparents, and kids can all laugh together. When you’ re in the stands, you’ re more than a spectator; you’ re part of the show with loads of audience participation. Throughout the game, fans will experience a magical display of tricks, coordinated ball handling, fancy passing and aerodynamic athleticism combined with high-energy comedy and audience interaction. The experience can only be summed up in two words: Awe-Inspiring!

Bus Trip From NYC | Alfred State

Welcome Parents of our 2019 incoming class!

Alfred State will once again be sponsoring 2 buses from New York City for an orientation session this July.

This summer, the buses will leave NYC on July 14th for the July 15th orientation session. As a reminder, bus seats are open only to students - this is a great way for your student to meet other classmates before the semester even starts!

The cost is $100 per student (includes overnight housing, dinner on July 14, and round-trip bus transportation). The bus is available to students only and will be chaperoned; sorry, no guests.

Alfred State Day of Giving 2018

Today is Alfred State's 3rd Annual Day of Giving! Help support our students and even give your gift to a specific group on campus! We need you!

One day. One goal. One Alfred.

give.alfredstate.edu Welcome to Alfred State College's 3rd Annual Giving Day. At Alfred State we pride ourselves on preparing our graduates to "Hit the Ground Running". The Alfred State Development Fund is the source for annual scholarships to deserving students as well as a means to support student groups participating...

[11/20/18]   Be thankful! Your students will be on their way home for Thanksgiving soon. As a reminder, Thanksgiving break begins tomorrow and ends on Sunday. Enjoy your time together and Happy Thanksgiving!

[11/14/18]   Need a lift for Thanksgiving recess next week? Save your parents the drive to campus? Catching a train, bus, or flight?

Alfred State will be “trying out” a shuttle to help students get to transportation hubs this upcoming academic break. These are each one-way tickets and cost $35 each –you can use CSA at the campus store!

WEDNESDAY, November 21st (outbound); the 3-stop outbound route ($35):
‡ Noon: Depart Alfred State from the Admin parking lot.
‡ 1:30p.m: Arrive Rochester airport
‡ 1:50 p.m.: Arrive Rochester Amtrak / bus terminal
‡ 3:10 p.m. Arrive Buffalo Airport

SUNDAY, November 25th (inbound); the 3-stop inbound route ($35):
‡ 4 p.m.: Arrive Buffalo airport for pickups
‡ 5:30 p.m. Arrive Amtrak in Rochester – * the westerly train would have arrived 5pm
‡ 6 p.m. Arrive Rochester Airport
‡ 7:30 p.m. arrive at campus and drop-off students around loop


ü Miss the shuttle? Unfortunately, the bus cannot wait for people who are running late. Some riders have ticketed itineraries and need to be kept on time. This shuttle comes through once so there is no next shuttle.
ü Large rollers will be off-limits (soft and carry-on style luggage only)
ü ACES and Alfred State we will be held harmless for unexpected vehicle breakdowns and the bus trip cannot not travel through weather conditions that have resulted in any county-issued travel bans (we recommend any applicable trip insurance or backup plans if your plans change or you miss the shuttle).

We are excited to try out the shuttle to determine if there is demand for recess or holiday-based shuttles. The opportunity could open up options for train, air, other bus, or just a closer rally point to meet a family member who is picking you up (you do not need to be connecting to other transportation to buy a ticket).

Pioneer Link - Form

Hi folks, sorry about the broken link, lets try this again! Please take a moment to fill out this short survey to explore transportation needs for students to and from Alfred State!
