The Allegheny Experience
Student life at Allegheny is also about speaking up and making a difference. You’ll hear animated voices all over our campus, from the outspoken students at the Center for Political Participation to the Jazz Band’s cool riffs to the annual serenading of sorority members on the Brooks Hall balcony. Students play a vital role in College decision-making, from helping to determine policies that will influence the future for other students to hiring new faculty to programming entertainment on campus. Our Gator Activities Programming (GAP) is an all-student board that brings a diverse range of speakers, movies, comedians, bands and more to Allegheny.
Student-inspired and -directed organizations and activities help students develop leadership skills and make a lasting impact on Allegheny’s campus culture. That’s because Allegheny is all about active learning and fun—not just learning about foreign policy in class, but arguing for change. Not just writing papers on social activism, but working to educate others.
Our students create, laugh, dance, play, explore and serve together every day. As they make their mark on Allegheny’s rich campus life, they’re also developing the unusual combinations of interests that drive them to learn and succeed.
