Campus Housing: Although pricey, I would recommend living in College Court as an upperclassman - you are still on campus, but in an apartment atmosphere that is spacious and comfortable.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Allegheny encourages a service ethic and challenges students to develop a strong sense of community involvement - both locally and globally. It has one of the best environmental science programs in the country. The campus is absolutely beautiful, with gorgeous 19th century buildings and plenty of open green space and trees. Professors go out of their way to get to know you and personally support your individual learning goals and aspirations.

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.
