From Allegheny College

At Allegheny, we take a mind over major approach to learning. Here, it’s not rigid career paths or constant lecture halls. It’s exploring your passions, discovering the world around you, and actually learning about what you’re interested in.

We ask our students to declare themselves, twice. First pick a major of your choice. Then choose a minor you’re interested in from an alternate discipline. This approach keeps minds wide open to fresh possibilities, new understanding, and different perspectives. Because if you want to be the kind of person who stands out in life, you need to learn outside the lines.

    Allegheny College is the heart of the community of Meadville, Pa. This college has created a special relationship between Meadville residents and college students. The professors at Allegheny do their best to value and push their students to reach their academic potential. Allegheny has recently undergone a change in presidential leadership which will hopefully allow the administration to better relate to the students. Our new president seems to be more in touch with our students' needs and desires. I believe that this change will allow the administration and students to strengthen their relationship and overall help students have the best college experience they can have.

    Allegheny set me on a path to reach my goals! I met people who challenged me and broadened my perspective. I was able to participate in a variety of activities that fostered my own interests and leadership skills. The academic rigor, focus on service to others and community spirit set Allegheny apart. The faculty are true scholars and are they are truly committed to students. The small town environment makes Allegheny feel like home. The campus activities, international students, and diversity make it feel a little bigger.
    Allegheny College is an amazing school for anyone looking for a small community of good people. It is easy to know a lot of your fellow classmates, and all the teachers remember your name. There are many resources on campus that help with academics, mental health, physical health, etc. There is also a wide array of clubs and activities to join in on, and the Student Government initiates many fun activities for students to do. Most Allegheny students are deeply devoted to their academics, but at the same time enjoy having fun. Allegheny isn't the busiest of campuses, but if you know you want to feel a connection with your school and your people at it, Allegheny is the school for you. I've personally experienced great times held with my teammates, my friends, my classmates, my fraternity, and more.
