4 College Freshman

Administration: The Honor Code is run by students and it definitely positively affects our campus.

3 College Senior

Administration: All faculty take the Honor Code very seriously. It is a benefit to the students though. Students can take exams without a professor sitting at the front of the room staring at you which creates a less stressful environment during testing. Underage drinking occurs frequently and administration doesn't really do anything about it. Security is very strict about parking and is quick to hand out parking tickets if students are not parked in the correct lot (students are assigned parking based on the location of their dorm).

3 College Freshman

Administration: administration is actually very lenient about parties and drinking as long as students do it safely and responsibly. The honor code is very strict and is enforced by a committee, but don't cheat or get rowdy at parties and you should be fine. Campus parking is awful and it's difficult to find a spot, but even though you pay for the permit, don't even think about parking in the wrong lot. You will be ticketed multiple times and while a $10 ticket doesn't seem like much, they can start to add up.

Administration: The administration is pretty reasonable. I really have not been affected by any ridiculous social policies, but I have definitely heard others voice some complaints.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The only complaint I have about the administration is that the campus security and Meadville police are going through some issues at the moment, so the parties constantly get broken up, which kind of sucks. But the school is pretty lenient on a lot of stuff. I have drank in plenty of dorm rooms and had nothing happen. I have also smoked weed a lot around campus and not been worried about anything happening. The faculty here is amazing, and they truly do care about the students which is really nice. If you don't show up to class, they will notice, and will question where you were, but not in a punishing manner, but a worried manner. They are also really easy to talk to, and I go into office hours a lot just to talk to the professors.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Allegheny is a pretty chill place. A lot of things operate on the honor system. Buildings are left open late at night, and there isn’t one security camera or burglar alarm. However, there is a system set up so that in an emergency situation (à la Virginia Tech), a mass e-mail/text message is sent out to the students from the Security Office.

Security on campus is most concerned with the students’ rights and creating an environment that stresses personal responsibility and trust. The flipside of that is that theft does happen. Allegheny students are not the only ones who can walk into open buildings; things go missing from sports lockers or unlocked cars every once in a while. Whatever it is you’re trying to get away with, if you’re smart, you won’t get caught. Don’t go to really loud parties if you’re underage and don’t get so drunk that you’ll look drunk walking home. If the party spills out onto the lawn, don’t go anywhere near it. It’s bound to be busted within the next 10 to 15 minutes.
