5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Professors are highly educated and incredibly challenging. This is not a school for a student who just wants to get by. They expect high quality work at all times, but are more than willing to help students and provide guidance as needed.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Being that the school is so small and old you have a long standing history of high performing alumni in the work force who are often willing to vouch for students. When companies hire students from Allegheny they know that they are getting someone hardworking and motivated.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The campus is very small and very safe. Everyone knows everyone else, and if there ever is an issue all you have to do is ask for help and someone will be there.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The campus is a historic one. Housing isn't always super modern and up to date, but this is college and it all works out fine in the end. Everyone survives the dorm stage and upperclassmen usually end up with very fair housing options.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Huge and accepting community on campus! There is a lot of camaraderie between the fraternities and sororities and friendships are formed all across Greek life. The system is very supportive, and creates one big family on campus!

3 College Junior

Athletics: This is a small liberal arts school. It's not about the sports they just kind of exist and occasional people attend events. Nothing special by any means.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Allegheny provides students with a truly wonderful experience. The small size helps professors to really focus on the students needs, and gives students the opportunity to grow. The classes are challenging, and the school prepares students to be hard working and high achieving. Overall, an excellent and rewarding experience!

2 College Junior

Health & Safety: Security and the counseling center are known for being biased against races and sexual orientation. Sexual assaults are swept under the rug. It is easier to get a hold of another student if you are in trouble than it is to get a hold of security.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: The housing process is very difficult to go through after your first year. A lot of the buildings are in poor condition, with rattling pipes, poor plumbing, mold in some bathrooms, and the walls and ceilings are cracked and damaged more often than not. It is not worth what is paid.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Several fraternities have a reputation of treating women inappropriately, even to the point of assault. The sororities are much better liked, and do a lot of charitable things.

3 College Junior

Athletics: The football team is terrible, which takes away from a lot of school spirit. People only really attend varsity sporting events if they are drunk or as a joke. Club sports are far more popular and those athletes are a lot nicer people to be around.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The majority of professors are wonderful and very approachable.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I actually am not a good judge of character on the Greek Life since I am not up to date with them either, just like athletics.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I do not really know much about the athletics at my school since I am not up to date with them.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Allegheny College is very diverse where for example, it had a drag show in April and it was fantastic! The majority of the students are intelligent and open-mind to many things. The professors do challenge the students and are very knowledgeable in their subject. I know that Allegheny College is a good start since it is a small, undergraduate school and when I graduate, I will go to a big school for my Master's degree.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: #2 in liberal arts colleges for environmental science in the country!

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Low student to faculty ratio, so your professor really does get to know you. It's easy for you to find help for classes as there are TA's, and tutors in the library and academic buildings

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Pretty safe. Academic buildings are checked and locked at midnight every night

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Pretty nice options. The bathrooms are cleaned every day for dorms. and the hallways are taken care of properly. Upperclass dorms are so nice with air conditioning and more private space and bathrooms.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Parties are only a small part of greek life, but for the rest of campus, it is mostly what we value in them.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Meets the demands of the general students, not the demands of the athletes

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professors and staff make the stay worthwhile

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus is poorly lit and split down the middle by a high-speed road...

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm more than happy at Allegheny College -- my courses are challenging but professors are beyond willing to assist struggling students; they really want students to succeed.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's okay, I guess. Dorms are old but in relatively good shape. Can't speak to the lotto process since I have accommodations in place that put me in a single room.

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.
