Alfred University, a private 4-year school, is located in Alfred, NY, west of the Finger Lakes and south of Rochester (not far from the Pennsylvania border). The expansive 232 campus has much green space and many trees and features a variety of architecture ranging from Gothic through modern to contemporary styles of buildings. Notable is the Davis Memorial Carillon, constructed in 1937 in honor of former president Boothe C. Davis. Founded in 1836, Alfred is notable for being co-ed and racially integrated from the start (unusual for the times). Alfred University has also partnered with Corning, Inc to focus on high tech ceramics – atypical for its narrow focus for technology. Among the notable alumni of Alfred University are actor/comedian Robert Klein and Robert H. Benmosche, CEO of AIG.
