Beware of Suspicious Emails - University Police

One of our students recently received an e-mail which came from an active Alfred State Webmail account offering them a job and a $2,450 paycheck. The email also requested the student deposit said check into their bank account and invest the money in Bitcoin. This is just a friendly reminder from University Police that emails such as this are almost always fake and should be treated as such. Emails requesting the recipient to purchase Apple gift cards, Google Play cards, cryptocurrency, or similar forms of payment are examples of what you should look for when dealing with these types of schemes.  Just remember if it sounds too good to be true it is.

Praying mantis adoption event

The Integrated Pest Management course is holding a baby praying mantis adoption event on Friday, April 21st from 1:30-3:00pm. Mantises will be adopted out on a first-come, first-served basis until gone. No reservations accepted. Mantises are small and housed in a plastic water bottle. They should be misted daily and fed wingless fruit flies every other day. Adopters can use the wingless fruit fly cultures housed in the Botany lab or order their own flies from suppliers like, but no fruit fly cultures can be given away. Mantises can be released at the end of May when the danger of frost has passed. It's amazing to watch them eat, molt and grow! Contact Jessica Hutchison with any questions.
