Poetry Reading Personal Review

 Written by Miranda Fuentes

    When attending a poetry reading event, the experience is completely separate from one’s expectations. I certainly had not expected the atmosphere to resonate within me as it did: the calm lighting, the silence of the attendees and the loudness of their focus, and the poets themselves. They had certainly opened themselves up to the audience, not only through their poetry, but the way they had dealt with dozens of eyes on them. Some played off nervousness with humor while others masked it with confidence. There were few who did not hide their shyness at all. Getting a sense of the poet’s personality can play a part in a poem’s effect when read by said poet.

Hot Dog Day Relaunch 2022

Written by Amanda Damon

    Hot Dog Day has been an Alfred tradition since 1972 and is typically held at the end of April. It was founded by two Alfred University Students, Mark O'Meara and Eric Vaughn, in an effort to bring together Alfred University, Alfred State College, and the village of Alfred itself. This event has always been a way to raise money for charities, such as the local ambulance company and the local library. The money raised from vendor fees and T-shirt sales is distributed among chosen charities and nonprofits. This event has typically raised between $10,000 to $16,000 split between 6 or 7 charities. There are often many events, including a parade on Main Street, a vendor fair, and a concert.

Black History Month at Alfred State College


Written by Demere Brave
