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.

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.

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.
