We’ve graduated and moved on from our little home away from home in Alfred, and ever since people seem to be bewildered by what you mean when you say, “Alfred…it’s kind of like Narnia.” Here is a list of things that only you will understand my fellow Saxons.

1. This view ignites your bones

Hairpin. One of the most gorgeous and stunning views that you will remember forever. Also, if you ever wondered why there is a bench up there all you Alfredians, that was thanks to my friends one Saturday night in the wee hours of the morning. You’re welcome.

2. Nana’s

You know exactly who she is, and you definitely will never forget the most delicious bento boxes or yakisoba for as long as you live. All hail Nana.

3. Wegman’s aka Heaven

If you were in earshot of anyone even whispering about a trip to Wegman’s you knew that this may be your only chance to get out of Alfred for the day…and you don’t need anything, but you never miss an opportunity to pile in a car and go to the mecca of all supermarkets.

4. Snow days DO NOT exist

This is an average day in Alfred from late October until the end of March. So suck it up and deal with it. Girls, you also learned very early on in your freshman year that Uggs don’t cut it in Alfred. They just don’t.

5. The response, “Your school was HOW small?”

Yes, that is an arial view of AU. That’s it. I don’t need to explain anymore.

6. Why it was necessary for the school to buy this…

Because nothing screams “we’re cool and hip” like a circular bike…right? NO.

7. You probably took an astronomy class “just for credits”

But you actually never realized how awesome it is that AU has one of the largest observatories of any university in the country. Suck on that “Big Ten” schools.

8. Explaining to people from other schools that we were the Saxons…

and having to be like “well, yeah Saxons were like…uhhh…King Alfred?”

9. Knowing that The Brick is most DEFINITELY haunted

I lived there Junior year. I seent things.

10. You have an insane amount of respect for artists

because you lived amongst some of the most incredible ceramic artists and glass blowers in the entire country. Both students and professors.

11. You remember being hungover as all hell and seeing this…

Head down and keep walking kid. You’ll make it to the Jet, don’t worry.

12. 50 degrees out? Meet me on the lawn, it’s summer!

Suns out, guns out. You know the rules.

13. Pollywog Holler is a real place and it’s incredible

If you somehow missed this in your four years, I sincerely feel bad for you. Take a few days off from your real-life job, head up to Alfred and go there. It’s worth it.

14. AU Football

Actually all of our sports for that matter. Not many other universities can say they are split between athletes and artists and everything in-between.

15. The beautiful and diverse student body

16. Foster Lake on a gorgeous fall or spring day

17. The tree houses in the woods

Not a real picture, but if someone says “let’s go to Tree-Tree,” you know.

18. Having so much pride it’s ridiculous

especially when one of our own Alumni, Matt Oakes, was a trainer at the Olympics in Sochi…just sayin’

19. BECAUSE HOT DOG DAY

You either know, or you don’t. That simple.

20. And finally, because you know the friends you made are for a lifetime

It doesn’t matter how many years pass by, or even if you didn’t know someone that well during college. Wherever you go, if there is an AU alumni, you know that their door is always open to you because they can relate in some way or another. Some people say we “can’t get over college,” but it’s not that. It’s a piece of you that will be there forever.
