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.

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!
