Allegheny is a hidden gem to American private liberal arts colleges. It has truly changed the ways that I interact with academics, people, and view the world. You'll build connections across disciplines while adding new, challenging, and diverse experiences from faculty, clubs, sports, music, the outdoors, art, and finding your own path. It's easy to run with a passion that you hold and just as easy to tap into the passions of others with more than 120 clubs represented on a campus of ~2000 students. Prepare to be amazed and changed!
Review Allegheny College
Allegheny College is a small liberal arts school in Northwestern Pennsylvania, 'liberal arts' meaning that students much study multiple fields of study. I find that through doing this, I am able to make connections across disciplines and it has been an eye opening experience. Allegheny is academically rigorous but truly rewarding, and I have been able to develop meaningful relationships with many of my professors. There are opportunities for students to join greek life, however there are also over 100 student run clubs and organizations to participate in. There is even an equestrian team, which I am apart of. Allegheny does not have the best dining halls and some of the academic buildings and dorms are outdated, however the experience as whole is life-changing.
Allegheny provides students with a truly wonderful experience. The small size helps professors to really focus on the students needs, and gives students the opportunity to grow. The classes are challenging, and the school prepares students to be hard working and high achieving. Overall, an excellent and rewarding experience!
