In 1826, Fredonia, N.Y. residents established a form of higher education beyond the "common school" when they created the Fredonia Academy. Before long, the academy was known as a regional center for teacher-training. One of the era's most notable students was Benjamin Franklin Goodrich, known today as B.F. Goodrich. In 1948, Fredonia became one of the four-year colleges in the newly-created State University of New York system. From 1996 to 2012, tremendous growth took place at Fredonia that included the construction of new buildings and an expansion of enrollment by 25 percent, or 1,000 undergraduates. Graduate enrollment doubled, minority students quadrupled, and international students increased by a factor of 10. A major capital campaign raised nearly $17 million in private funds to support Fredonia.

My experience at Fredonia was one that I cannot replace with any other. Fredonia helped me to discover my true passions, the knowledge I was looking for and myself. What really makes a college experience positive and fulfilling is the people who you meet who take the time to take care of you and you really just can't find that many other places like that other than Fredonia.
