Allegheny College Reviews
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 is good school to come to if you want challenge yourself. The academics can be very rigorous, but the school offers you many resources such as private tutors, group study sessions and every professor has required office hours for their students. The school itself is very lovely, it is on a hill and is surrounded by nature which makes the walk to class very scenic. The school has a lot of history to it so there are a lot of historical building here such as Bentley Hall. Academic and Dorm Halls may need upgrading though as some buildings do not have air conditioning which can make the fall heat unbearable at times. The people here a very friendly and willing to help you as well and make the school atmosphere much more lively. Overall the school is a great school.
Visiting Allegheny, I felt like I was at home away from home. The student interaction is very good. I have been given nothing but a warm welcome while I was on campus. I believe that everyone should look into the school!
