Sexual assault will unfortunately be a problem on every college campus. Allegheny mains, students, and offices supported students who were victims of sexual assault through informing the community of safe practices, helping victims, and taking appropriate action in cases of sexual assault.

Allegheny isn't as well-known as it ought to be. However, you're able to see how valuable your education was only after you've left campus. Despite the lack of a prestigious name, once internships and employers see your Allegheny work-ethic and how diverse your interests are you are help in high-regard.

If you're looking for marble staircases and oak bed-frames then SERIOUSLY reconsider why you want to go to college. Allegheny does a great job at bringing together students fro diverse socioeconomic backgrounds. As such, money that might otherwise be spent on the latest and greatest drops/amenities will be bypassed to ensure a quality education where diverse opinions, experiences, and interests intersect in the Allegheny community. As such, the dorms here are average, sometimes a little under-par. But, the college-owned apartments are FANTASTIC and the houses are a lot of fun. There's a place for everyone.

Greek life here is big. But, it doesn't fit the typical "Animal House" stereotype. I personally felt indifferent to the greek life merely because of the imprint Greek Life has left on American higher Education. However, that being said, many of my closest friends were greek. They were a fun bunch o hangout with but didn't dominate the social scene. You're able to find the comradely that comes with the Greek system on other avenues of community (club sports teams, ensembles, from halls, etc.).

Fantastic, state-of-the-art gym that is open to varsity and non-varsity athletes. There is never any judgement in the gym--regardless of whether you are a pro body builder or are simply trying out this new "working out" thing. Having visited many similar DIII gyms, Allegheny's is one of the best in the NCAC conference and certainly one of the best among similar schools across the country.

Allegheny College isn't for everyone. Everyone has broad, diverse interests that one wouldn't expect to naturally go together (rugby, poli-sci major, drummer, volleyball, ASG consultant, etc.). But, these interests are honed with enthusiastic admins who want to see their students succeed. You can truly take an idea and run with it knowing that faculty/staff are in your corner.

I love attending Allegheny College. The people make it a home and the classes make it rigorous and stimulating.

Professors email regularly about internship and job opportunities and usually post them on their office doors. It's hard to miss.

You're never far from where you need to go, whether it's for food or classes. Each building has their own community and everyone mixes. It's comfortable.

There's no hazing and I've only had good experiences, even as a non-Greek. I would try and join if it weren't so expensive.

I just wish Womens' Rugby was more than a Club Sport, since we put in just as much effort and have better results than our Football team.

My college challenges without belittling or condescending. Everyone's value is seen and respected and from what I've seen, my peers and professors only want me to do better each year.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.
