After she graduates, Elizabeth plans on designing equipment for the Navy.
Before deciding to attend Alfred State, Elizabeth Glick had heard about the school’s strong mechanical engineering technology program through friends of hers, who had “only positive things to say” about the college.
Also making her decision to enroll easier were the peaceful, welcoming atmosphere on campus; the 20-1 student-faculty ratio; and of course, the college’s emphasis on hands-on learning.
“My major has definitely given me the real-world experience that I need. Sitting in a classroom can only teach you so much. You definitely have to be out there doing the things you are learning about. I feel like I’m going to be more successful in life as a result of the hands-on aspect of my major.”
After she graduates, Elizabeth plans on designing equipment for the Navy. Her Alfred State education has not only helped prepare her for a career, it has given her the confidence to succeed.
“I feel happier and more confident in my abilities now. I came into my major knowing nothing and the school has given me everything I need to know for when I graduate.”
