Allegheny in Asia

Update: We’ve gotten confirmation that Bob is safe and sound in Bali. “We seem to be just fine and there’s no need to worry.”

Our hearts and thoughts go out to everyone in Japan and throughout the Pacific who were impacted by this horrible earthquake and tsunami. [3/11/11 - 9:25am]

In early March, our international admissions coordinator, Bob Baldwin, will travel to Asia as part of the Colleges That Change Lives Asia Tour 2011. The tour features several college fairs, which are great opportunities to learn about the distinctive features of Allegheny and the value of a liberal arts education. The following fairs are open to the public, and pre-registration is not required. Click here to find the location nearest you. We hope that you will meet Bob during these exciting events!

International Dinner 2010

Allegheny recently celebrated its International Dinner, hosted by the International Club. This event has become an annual event on campus– and a celebration of the diverse cultures and backgrounds that make up Allegheny.

For the event, the International Club took over one of the dining halls and cooked for two straight days– not to mention putting on a show featuring costumes, songs, and dances from around the world! Check out our photos from the event here.

We’ll be posting our International Dinner video on this page after the new year. Keep visiting this page for more updates!

On the road…

Our international students love to travel! This semester, our international students have had the opportunity to explore several locations close to Allegheny. So far, they have visited the Crawford County Fair (right here in Meadville), the nearby city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, & the world-famous Niagara Falls in the state of New York, among other places.
