Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2016

Allegheny College gave me a great, rigorous, science education which prepared me very well for the research I decided to do after graduation. Allegheny also prepared me for medical school- I have been accepted to begin this Fall. This being said, I would rate career advising as somewhat poor, but this was well worth the great education I received. Even though I did not have advisors to hold my hand through job and school application processes, I gained the ability to solve problems on my own which gave me the confidence to move forward toward my career.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2007

Allegheny prepares students for being experts in their field. I started my major my freshman year. There is also a great deal of flexibility because of the limited course requirements outside of your major. There are also great opportunities for financial aid. I essentially received enough scholarships to pay for 3 out of 4 years.

Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2012

The environmental studies program is excellent but benefits from a more focused, hard-skills based approach. I recommend peppering the coursework with GIS, statistics, and ecology coursework to be more employable after graduating - or go on to get a graduate degree to add technical skills for real-world employment opportunities.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2009

Allegheny was full of very hardworking, intelligent students and supportive, well-trained faculty. I really enjoyed four years of being pushed to learn more and be better, and never had an issue getting faculty to answer questions. Opportunities for extra research/internships were plentiful, and really helped me prepare for my current position working towards a PhD.

Allegheny College is a fantastic place to continue your education. It combines the perfect amount of academic work with a fun atmosphere. Meadville is a true college town and your experience will be great.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2009

It was challenging and motivating. I was always busy and learned a lot. It set me up well for my current work on a PhD. Faculty are very involved and supportive, and I continue to keep in touch with many of them.

Degree: French Language and Literature
Graduation Year: 2008

Allegheny was small enough to give me the personal attention that I desired from a private, liberal arts education and prepare me for a future in graduate school. The unusual combinations that they encourage in choosing majors and minors from different disciplines allowed me to explore options and expand my horizons while still enabling me to study abroad. The small town environment provided plenty to do with rich opportunities for involvement in the community, and larger cities nearby for an occasional weekend away. I would absolutely recommend this college - for any number of majors - or to those students still deciding; it's a wonderful place to learn more about who you are and who you want to become.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2011

Allegheny College is a great school for people who want small class sizes, access to one on one time with professors, and enjoy taking courses in many different subject areas. However, it is not the type of school that is going to prepare you for a job immediately after college. At Allegheny, you learn how to write, read, think, and analyze problems at an extremely high level, which will benefit you in the long run. If you have the money and want to invest in your long term future, this is an amazing school. If you are looking for a degree that will translate into a job upon graduation, this is not the school for you.
