This message is being sent to all Medaille University students regarding Medaille’s agreement with Alfred University:
Dear Medaille Students,

The faculty and administration of Alfred University are sad to learn the news of the closure of your University. We understand how upsetting and challenging this situation must be for you. As an alum of Medaille and a former long-standing employee, I know that Alfred University’s mission, academic programs, athletic offerings, and co-curricular life mirror each other. I invite you to join me at Alfred University.  

We invite you to consider Alfred University as your education partner so you can complete your education as easily as possible. Visit the website landing pages we have created for you to learn how you can easily make arrangements to transfer to our University.

In addition, we will be at Medaille in Buffalo, NY, on Tuesday, May 16, at noon to hold an Information Session in the Lecture Hall of Medaille University. We encourage those students who can join in person to do so. You will also find below options to join zoom sessions for those out of town.

Since its founding in 1836, Alfred University evolved into a comprehensive institution offering a full range of programs in the liberal arts and sciences, art and design, engineering, business, education, counseling, and school psychology for our undergraduate and graduate students who live, learn, compete and play on a 232-acre campus located in an idyllic, creative valley in Western New York. Today, Alfred University focuses on a professional education with an emphasis on APEX (applied and experiential learning program). 
Alfred University is the second oldest coeducational college in the United States as well as one of the earliest nineteenth century colleges to have enrolled African American and Native American students. It has a long-standing history of educating socially conscious students who make a difference in their professions and their communities.

In addition to varsity sports, there are club sports, including men's rugby and ultimate Frisbee; and intramural sports such as soccer, basketball and handball. Visit the official athletics site. 
About 1,600 undergraduates and nearly 150 graduate students from 43 states and 16 countries attend full-time on the Alfred campus. AU has approximately 90 additional part-time graduate students on the Alfred, NY campus, and 475 graduate students enrolled in its AUNY NYC-metro area programs.
