Welcome to Allegheny College

Unusual combinations.
Extraordinary outcomes.

Recognition in the country’s top college guides and rankings doesn’t happen overnight. Since 1815, the accomplishments and contributions of Allegheny students, faculty and alumni have continued to strengthen the value of the Allegheny diploma.

A typical Allegheny student might study political science, mathematics or studio art while preparing for medical school, but also play varsity soccer, report for the newspaper, intern at the hospital and learn to tango – all in the same week. Unusual combinations? These combinations of academic interests are everyday examples of our students challenging their intellects and pursuing their passions.

At Allegheny, we invite students to tap all of their interests. The remarkable coalescence results in students who develop the skills essential in today’s global marketplace: being articulate, innovative, analytical, collaborative and creative.
