Allegheny College Reviews
Review Allegheny College
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!
Allegheny is a place for good students to become great people. I went on from Allegheny to get my Masters degree from an elite school. While Allegheny may not be an elite college, you will get a top-notch education. Comparing the two experiences- Allegheny students are just as intelligent and hardworking as elite college students, often more so, but without the pretension. Allegheny students might not have had the test scores or GPA to get into an elite school, but they have the curious, intelligence, and work ethic to. Allegheny students are kind and accepting. They are open. They are caring. I wouldn't trade my Allegheny experience for any other.
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 Allegheny does not have the best dining halls and some of the academic buildings and dorms are outdated, however the experience as whole is life-changing.
