Academics Rating

Degrees from Allegheny College are respected more than a degree from a state college. This is because of Allegheny's reputation for academic rigor. The classes are very challenging and will push every student out of their comfort zone, but that is what makes Allegheny so special. The professors encourage you to go deeper and explore the text further than you would in any other academic institution. Professors demand that you put your best effort into every single assignment, and participate in class everyday. So yes, the work load is demanding and grueling at times, but it is worth it. Also, there is an amazing support system. The library houses the Learning Commons, which is a center full of brilliant tutors and counselors that will help you with calculous or help you work out a plan to manage your time if you feel overwhelmed. The work is hard, but there are people everywhere, literally everywhere, that will help you succeed.

Academics Rating

Allegheny is filled with kind, humble and courteous people from all walks of life. Coming from New York City I was scared I would have trouble finding people I can relate to, but I've learned to feel close to those I may not have much in common with simply because they are good people. The small intimate class sizes at Allegheny allow for wonderful discussions similar to what I experienced in my high school, making me feel at home in the academic realm. Teachers really reach out to the students, and you can tell they're not just concerned with a grade, they actually want you to learn and they want to form good professional relationships with their students.
