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!

A recent study by Allegheny’s Center for Political Participation regarding civility in politics has received national publicity. The survey shows the majority of Americans want to see more respect and compromise in politics—qualities they find lacking in most of Washington’s discussions. Pulitzer Prize-winning David M. Shribman, executive editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, used his well-respected voice to unequivocally endorse Allegheny’s effort:
“From Harvard came the Marshall Plan; from the University of Michigan, Lyndon B. Johnson’s Great Society. John F. Kennedy gave his space-race speech at Rice and his world-peace speech at American University. Winston Churchill delivered his “Iron Curtain” speech at Westminster College in Fulton, Mo. Years from now, if we are lucky, we may recall that the big idea of the early 21st century came from Allegheny College in Meadville, Pa. … the Allegheny idea is simple: ‘Nastiness, Name-calling and Negativity’ (the title of the college’s ground-breaking new report) are bad, and civility and compromise are good.”
