Honestly, the professors are the heart and soul of the college. If you’re looking for a good science-oriented curriculum as a place to study, this is a good decision.
The administration is not great, and the food is not that great all the time.
The teachers here are wonderful. It's usually evident that they love what they're teaching.
What I like about Allegheny is an easier question. Overall I'd say I didn't feel safe and the administration openly does not care about the students.
I appreciated the architecture and layout of Allegheny College. I think the college is very pretty. The professors are intelligent and nice for the most part. I learned a lot in my major because the professors from my department were really great.
I don’t like the location of the college. The college is in a very small town with nothing to do and nowhere to go. The weather was also terrible if you aren’t used to cold weather. With the drab environment of winter that seems to last about 8 months of the year, it was a bit difficult to feel motivated. I also didn’t like how the school treated professors and certain departments.
The best thing about Allegheny College is your access to the professors and the research opportunities. There are no grad students to compete with for research positions and the professors look for ways to connect your interests to research projects from the very beginning.
The food is pretty bad and the dorms are old, but that is part of the experience!
