If you weren't a hand-raiser before coming to Allegheny, it just might turn you into one. Class discussions never fail to be compelling, and even lecture classes are stimulating and never too large to exclude anyone. There is admittedly a heavy workload, in terms of papers and required readings outside of actual class hours, but there is no such thing as busywork here, as every assignment in some way significantly contributes to the course.

    I loved the campus, and everyone was really nice! The classes (I sat in on two when I went on my overnight) were super engaging and interesting! Their emphasis on unusual combinations is a big plus.

    Allegheny has a close community where students and professors learn and grow together. Students bond over the intense academic rigor, and thrive off of the challenges the professors present. The faculty and alumni base at Allegheny works extremely hard to ensure that each student finds internships and future jobs.

    The Campus is simply beautiful. The thing I love though is definitely how personalized and student centralized they claim everything to be. Just the right word to the right person can make a real change and make your whole experience better from my understanding.

    Allegheny provides a well rounded education of fantastic quality! It organizes internships and hands on experience for people in most all fields, has an exceptionally strong science program for a small liberal arts college, and Allegheny provides a flexibility in curriculum for people interested in various fields. Allegheny also is a college that simply has a faculty that is interested in you and how you are doing, and a student body that is genuinely friendly.

    This college is welcoming in all ways. I attended an open house, and was really impressed by the faculty lecture on global warming. I was even more impressed by the students' sense of community.

    It is a beautiful campus, rain, snow, or shine. There aren't a lot of choices when it comes to majors. The teachers really care about each student.
