Rigor & Support

At Allegheny, you’ll be asked to complete the type of work that is the caliber of graduate school inquiry. Is it rigorous? You bet. But our faculty are people who pride themselves on being teachers first—they will advise and support you to move beyond what you can even imagine now. They will provide you with opportunities and challenges that will lead you from hard work and dedication to extraordinary outcomes.

Learning Commons

The Maytum Learning Commons draws together a variety of academic support services to create a “one-stop shop” for students in Allegheny’s Pelletier Library. Peer consultants assist students with writing, public speaking, effective use of technology, and study in a variety of academic subjects.

Our professional staff arrange accommodations for students with disabilities; consult with students on study skills such as time management, effective reading, and test taking; coordinate new student orientation; and support the academic advising program.

The Allegheny Gateway

The Allegheny Gateway provides opportunities for students to study, live and work abroad; encounter diverse peoples and viewpoints; get involved in defining and addressing real-world problems and challenges; engage in collaborative projects with other students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community partners; and articulate how their Allegheny experiences have prepared them for careers and graduate/professional studies after they leave college.

Through collaborative work and shared goals, the offices within the Gateway offer students an integrated and interdisciplinary approach to experiential learning.
