Allegheny is much more than a liberal arts and sciences college with a national reputation for academic rigor and preparing successful graduates. The College also is known as a place where students hone their unique combinations of interests and talents to prepare for extraordinary outcomes.
Take for instance Stephanie Northwood ’13, a political science major and American studies minor. While her studies have kept her incredibly busy, Stephanie has made the time to get involved with numerous campus activities during her time at Allegheny. These include serving as a student assistant in the Office of Development & Alumni Affairs, a Phonathon caller, co-chair of the Senior Class Gift Committee, chapter president of Delta Delta Delta, a member of the Public Events Committee, a student government representative to the Panhellenic Council, and a member of the College Democrats.
As Stephanie looks back at the last four years, she is grateful for the opportunity she had to connect with dedicated faculty and make lifelong friends through her participation in a variety of experiences.
“Being involved in so many different activities allowed me to develop my time-management skills and work with all kinds of people,” Stephanie said. “I absolutely love Allegheny and know that I have received an exceptional education. I am ready to enter the next chapter of my life.”
After graduation, Stephanie plans to move to Washington, D.C., and to someday work for a “think-tank” organization.
Allegheny sends our best wishes to Stephanie and all of our 2013 graduates as they introduce their “Unusual Combinations” to all those they encounter as they depart from campus and enter the next phase of their professional journeys.
