Once you’re admitted to Allegheny, visit and familiarize yourself with the community. There are plenty of special visit opportunities just for you!
For high school juniors and younger students, we welcome you to attend our April Open House or schedule an individual visit.
Deadlines to Register
Plan to register early to ensure the best experience, including the option to stay overnight with a student host and select classes to attend. At the latest, register one week in advance so that we may have time to make the appropriate arrangements for your visit.
Students, if you choose to stay overnight in a residence hall, we will match you with one of our volunteer student hosts. We will match students with similar academic or extracurricular activities whenever possible. If you know a current student who lives on campus and would like to stay with him/her, please let us know on your reservation form. Please bring a pillow, sleeping bag, towel and any other personal items that will be needed. Overnight hosts are not available for Gator for a Day on April 13.
Parents, you can find a list of recommended hotels and bed & breakfasts at our Visitor’s Center.
Students traveling alone to our Allegheny Bound Overnights can take advantage of our shuttles. See our travel assistance page for more details.
Dress & Weather
Dress is casual throughout the weekend. Average temperature range in March is 25–45 degrees and snowfall is always a possibility. April holds less of a chance of snow, but temperatures still vary. While much of the program will be held in the Campus Center, the evening entertainment, campus tours, and drop-in locations will require walking outside. Bundle up, we’ll make it—Allegheny Gators aren’t afraid of the snow!
