Welcome, Class of 2023!

You’re Allegheny Bound, and we’re very excited that you have decided to become a Gator. We can’t wait to welcome you to campus.

Allegheny Bound is the process that will guide new students in transitioning to Allegheny. This website, the Allegheny Bound booklet, and summer communications to your @allegheny.edu email account will provide the information you need to prepare for your first semester.

We encourage you to join the Allegheny College Class of 2023 Facebook group to meet other new students and have questions answered by current students and College administrators.

The entire Allegheny community is ready for a fun-filled summer. We look forward to helping you feel part of our community by the time courses start.

Welcome, Class of 2023! Go Gators!
