I want to thank you, on behalf of the student body and myself, for your generous donations to Allegheny College! Your gifts allow the College to continue making improvements both inside and outside of the classroom, allowing students to get the most out of their time here at Allegheny. Your support also allows students like me to be able to go to their dream school without the stress of financial burden.
I have fallen in love with Allegheny and cannot thank you enough for helping me get here. I am currently a freshman and am intending to major in biochemistry and minor in Spanish. In the future I want to go to graduate school to pursue a career in cancer research. I am also on the women’s varsity soccer team, involved in religious life, and a member of Alpha Phi Omega. In just a little over a semester, i can tell Allegheny has allowed me to step outside of my comfort zone and develop as a person. Allegheny has challenged me to manage my time as a student athlete, to be open-minded, to think critically and to not only be a resident of the college, but to be a resident of Meadville.
I hope that you will be able to visit Allegheny soon and see all the improvements to the college that are a direct result of your contributions. I also hope that if you are ever visiting that you will come to a soccer game so that I can thank you in person.
