I graduated from A Tech, in 68. Myself and several other Ag Engineering students opted for the three year program, because we were married and needed to support a family. Our first son was born in the hospital in Hornell, and we lived off campus down the road in Almond, in a trailer park kidycross from the school.
Also had many good times at the Road House just down from us, and up at the Lodge. Also had friends in Syo, and Wellsville. There wasn't much happening in Alfred on a Friday night, as you well know.
My passingers were all guys in the AE curiculem, and we would hook up in Oneonta for the trip west to ATech.
Loren, the Acg.

A fellow named James F Moore moved from Almond, NY westward and settled in Wisconsin where he was appointed US Postmaster of this little stagecoach stop town that had no name. Before the Post Office could open, the town needed a name. So James Moore selected "Almond". That was in 1850. As of 2010, Almond, Wis had 448 residents.

I considered switching to AE but was talked out of it. Yeah, there was not a lot happening on a weekend which is why I went home a lot. Probably if I had a different set of friends I might have stuck around more weekends. They may have not had the Pioneer Lounge (bar) on campus back in your day but a night there got kind of expensive so I may have done one Saturday a month. My dorm mates usually wanted to go down Wednesday or Thursday nights so there was not much left for Friday and Saturday spending-wise. Wellsville had a couple of night spots back then but they did not suit a country boy like me. Hornell was mainly for going to Mc Donald's or Friendly's. I was kind of dead center of where a bunch of students lived that went to Alfred so they caught rides with me. I wished I had a real shot at some of the girls that rode along but that was not the case. Being a farm boy was in some ways a drawback in that respect just like high school unfortunately. At least the guys on the same floor where I was were jealous that at least I got those girls to ride with me.
