3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There's not a lot of on campus crime or sexual assaults. I feel like it's all basically off campus at houses or near campus. The town of Meadville is hella sketchy

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It is academically rigorous, there's no doubt about that. Professors are pretty understanding and office hours are available

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I don't know that much about it but I know that around Pennsylvania and Ohio, it is very well known and everyone is really smart.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's pretty nice but my roommate and I shared the space of a single instead of a normal sized double

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm personally indifferent towards it. I have friends that participate in greek life. There is a sort of, label that you get depending on what sorority or fraternity you join. A lot of the assumptions are false because I've met people who have been in supposedly "snobby" sororities and they're very fun. If you're not involved in Greek life or athletics, then I honestly would not come to this school.

Academics: Allegheny is known for its heavy workload, but as long as you learn how to manage your time, homework is more than manageable. The Freshman Seminar is designed to help students break down their workload and learn how to approach a variety of assignments, and is very helpful for incoming students. The Pelletier Library also has an excellent staff of writing, speech, and technology consultants trained to help students who need feedback or advice about assignments. Professors are always willing to help students during office hours, and treat you as if you are a fellow colleague and friend - not just a face in a crowd.

3 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: I definitely felt like the majority of students at Allegheny were upper middle class white folks. However, Allegheny makes a huge effort to make minorities feel welcome, heard, and included.

3 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: There is drug use on campus within some circles - but you would probably never know unless you were looking to hang out with them.

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: About 1/3 of campus is involved with Greek life at Allegheny.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Class sizes are small, and individual attention and support from professors is easy to come by. There are a huge variety of courses, and Allegheny encourages students to take coursework in various fields before committing to a major field of study.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Allegheny's career services does a great job reaching out to students, but I think your strongest asset is in networking with alumni and professors.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: I never felt in danger or threatened in any way on Allegheny's campus, even walking around at night. There is a small-town vibe to the area, and you feel relatively safe at all times. As a woman, you'd probably be in more danger of being assaulted at a party than walking around campus.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel relatively safe and relatively healthy living on campus.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I feel very close to my professors and they're all extremely helpful.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Not terrible, not terrific. It's on campus housing.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Joining a sorority changed my life for the better. I have made lifelong friends, been able to do amazing things for our philanthropy, and create great events for the students here on campus.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's like home here, the people and professors are amazing. I've learned so much for my two majors and had many opportunities to push myself. Go to Allegheny and you won't regret it.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel as though our Health & Safety department could be improved.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Attending Allegheny has been pretty great so far. Every professor that I've had has been very helpful, engaging, and caring. All of the course I've taken have been rigorous, yet manageable.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Finding a job/internship is made pretty easy with the resources we have on campus. The alumni network is reliable.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The living arrangements aren't horrible, but they could be better.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I personally like Allegheny's greek life and its system, but there are other students who do not.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Our athletic programs are decent, but the student body does not make attending athletic events a priority.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: In terms of academics, Allegheny is excellent!

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The Security are always on duty. When something happens, they always send an email to all of the students to report what happened and to be cautious.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Something commonly heard from recent graduates is how much easier graduate programs were after the rigorous Allegheny courseload. Whether at grad school or at their first job out of college, Allegheny graduates have the skills to succeed in their fields. When considering their time at Allegheny, most students are very thankful for the education they received and all of the great people they got to know. There are so many different kinds of people and points of view that students are encouraged to do anything they truly want to do. Most people feel that they have really grown and changed as a result of the Allegheny experience—and in a good way.

There are students who have regrets or who feel they were in some way disappointed with their Allegheny education or experience. For one thing, Meadville does not provide the kinds of opportunities or the nightlife that a big-city university would. Succeeding at Allegheny is a lot of work and students looking for a party school will not find it here. It takes a lot of time and effort, and for some, it might not be worth it. But all that time and effort is meant to pay off, and for hard-working students, it does.
