Driving Concerns to Wellsville Campus

Local officials, including area school superintendents, have contacted our offices to report a sudden increase in dangerous and reckless driving between Alfred and Wellsville.  The officials believe that the vehicles are students traveling between campuses.  To ensure community safety, law enforcement agencies will be increasing their patrols of the roads in these areas to address speeding and aggressive driving.  These agencies have expressed willingness to share the offenders ticketed with us. 

We care about student safety and to do our part, we will begin suspending parking privileges on one or both campuses for any student ticketed for speeding, aggressive driving behaviors, or whose license plates are supplied from officials who can document unsafe behaviors.   You can help by doing your part: driving responsibly to preserve your privileges and avoid a very costly ticket.


We appreciate your willingness to be a responsible member of this community,  


Dr. Greg Sammons, Vice President for Student Affairs

Mr. Jeff Stevens, Dean of the School of Applied Technology
