We look forward to having you join us on campus this summer for an exciting, fun-filled Summer Orientation program where you will meet new friends, members of the Allegheny faculty, senior administrators, and more!

Carefully planned sessions offer a range of perspectives on life at Allegheny and provide resources and information that will be particularly helpful during your first months on campus.
