“I did not expect the program to give us as many in-depth workshops with professors all week, but I enjoyed it. I would explain it as a great way to start off freshman year because it helps makes you less overwhelmed and provides you with all the information you need to know as far as resources on campus.”

“What’s most amazing about Access Allegheny is the community! The program nurtures deep and lasting relationships among students, staff, and faculty that have an enormous impact on students’ experiences. I’ve seen firsthand how Access helps students to succeed academically, while also empowering them to become leaders on campus. Participating in Access enables students to find their voice, both as young scholars and members of the Allegheny community. That’s a beautiful thing!”

Professor Joshua Searle-White

“The Access Allegheny program went beyond my expectations in how much it helped my students adapt to college life and become a part of Allegheny.  From the first week I met them, they were as cohesive as any group of students I have seen in my 20 years at Allegheny, and now several months later, they continue to bond with each other and support each other in both their academic and social lives.  I’m looking forward to continuing to be a part of the program in the future.”
