Allegheny College Recognized Among Nation’s Best Value Institutions by The Princeton Review

Allegheny College has again been named one of the nation’s best institutions for undergraduate education and a best value by The Princeton Review. The education services company features Allegheny in “The Best 388 Colleges,” the 2024 edition of its flagship college guide. 

The guidebook notes that the Allegheny campus is “one of the country’s oldest and most dynamic private liberal arts institutions” and a premier college for students with different interests, skills, and talents. The organization also mentions Allegheny as one of the Best Northeastern Colleges.

For its selection of profiled schools, the Princeton Review examines surveys from over 160,000 students, ranking institutions on academics, quality of life, politics, campus life, extracurriculars, and social scenes. 

The recognition is the latest in a string of distinctions that highlight Allegheny’s quality and value:

  • In 2022, U.S. News & World Report named Allegheny one of the top 100 national liberal arts colleges in the country. Along with several other accolades, Allegheny was recognized as a best-value college based on academic quality and cost and the quality of its undergraduate teaching.
  • Washington Monthly recognized Allegheny among the top 50 best liberal arts colleges nationwide in the publication’s 2023 rankings. Washington Monthly rated the top liberal arts colleges in the nation based on three broad categories: social mobility (recruiting and graduating low-income students), research (producing cutting-edge scholarships and Ph D.s), and service (encouraging students to give something back to society).
  • In the Top Colleges of 2023, Forbes recognized Allegheny among the nation’s top colleges based on the quality of education, price, and return on investment. 
  • Colleges That Change Lives, a leading national voice in college choice, has featured Allegheny since 1996, highlighting the college’s focus on personalized, student-centered learning and undergraduate research.
