Overall Rating

Allegheny College is a place unlike any other. The college community is built around academics and togetherness. In classes, every professor knows your name, and wants to develop a relationship with every student in order to help them grow and prosper as a student learner. Having such a committed, motivated and inspiring faculty has made my college experience priceless. As for the student body, we are a united group of learners. You will notice this from just one visit on campus. Students are conversing after class about the topics they discussed that day, everyone greets each other by name as they pass on the brick sidewalks, and you feel the sense of community that is unlike any other campus. Allegheny College is committed to helping its students grow and develop into the person they were destined to be through it's commitment to academics and creativity.

Allegheny is a wonderful place where you will meet people from all walks of life. You won't find any snobby or malicious souls on this campus. It is a great place for someone who doesn't mind the cold, has a love for grass and trees and doesn't like to walk very far.
