While Allegheny is a really small school, there is always something to do! For example, "GAP," Gator Activities Programming always has exciting activities for students to do. Such as, Concerts, Movies on the Quad, Wing Fest, Spring Fest, Touring Comedians, and many more. Allegheny's Greek Life is always putting on events, most of them for charity, that are very fun and gets the majority of the student body involved. Some examples of Greek Events are, highlighter dance parties, Greek Sing, Man of the Year, Students Against Multiple Sclerosis Dance competition, and end of the year picnics. Allegheny has a wide variety of sports teams such as football, basketball, soccer, swimming, track, lacrosse, tennis, golf, and many more. Regardless of what activities you decide to participate in, you can be sure that you will be safe. Allegheny's campus safety is always working to make sure our student's are safe. Allegheny is a great place to learn but also a great place to have fun and make lasting friendships!

College Life Rating

"We're all in this together" seems to be the motto for the social atmosphere at Allegheny. There are countless clubs and organizations that anyone could be a part of, and that often join forces to make cool things happen on campus. Campus Security's only concern is safety. They are not out to get anyone as long as no one's in danger. There's always something fun to do on campus, like ice-cream making, film showcases, plays performed and written by students, and much more.
