Gator Days


Gator Day: October 23, 2018

Thank you for attending the Fall 2018 Gator Day!

Gator Day is a day of programming centered around helping students connect their curricular and co-curricular experiences with the next steps they want to take in at Allegheny and beyond.

Gator Days began within a group of faculty and students serving on the Allegheny College Curriculum Committee. During a review of the school calendar, orientation, exam days, and the general flow of the year, it became apparent that students would benefit from a more intentional exploration of their academic, personal and career interests.

To accomplish this goal, one day each semester was set aside as a day with no scheduled classes or extracurricular activities so that students would be free to take advantage of this opportunity to explore what Allegheny has to offer.

This outline and philosophy of Gator Days was approved by the faculty in the Fall of 2011. A committee of administrators, faculty, and students began to collect ideas for the first Gator Days, which would take place during the 2012-2013 academic year.
