Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

The atmosphere at Allegheny is distinct. While most colleges are trying to establish more urban setting - self-styling as "wired" and offering a myriad of survey courses - Allegheny keeps to its traditional roots. The focus on liberal arts - getting solid foundations in core curriculum - ground students in academic pursuits instead of allowing fickle interests. That it is able to update its facilities and technology without forgetting the foundation of education - the liberal arts - Allegheny stays original in its consistency.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Finding the right school for your child is like getting engaged - if it works out it could be the perfect marriage, otherwise you spend exorbitant amounts of money on the divorce. You need to know what kind of student your child is - can they work independently, do they know their social limits, have they always struggled - and then match this with another university and their strengths. From my experience, you can never go wrong with the small, liberal-arts choice: with strong foundations in multiple areas of study as well as close interactions to keep your child on track, these schools have a reputation for producing independent-thinking, strong-working and talented adults. Futher, if your son or daughter isn't sure of a field of study I suggest the ultimate liberal art: philosophy. It is a recorded fact that philosophy students score the highest (as of the last study) on the GRE Verbal, Analytic Writing, and the Quantitative sections (with the exceptional of Engineering majors on the Quantitative). That goes to show that not only liberal arts but philosophy which is at its roots prepares students for almost any academic goal.

What's unique about your campus?

It's all the undiscovered qualities which make Allegheny great. The caliber of professors is exceptional, and the level of academic expectations they have is incredibly high. You earn your B's here, and an A is a mark of distinction. That such an academically rigorous school - comparable to any ivy-league - could go unnoticed makes it unique.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Allegheny College, in my eyes is best known for the academic success rate and how anyone who graduates from there gets a great job within a few months or so after graduation. This school is also listed in the 40 best colleges/university book, that is what caught my attention as well as my mom.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The best advice that I could give to parents and/or students going through the whole college process would be to visit schools, ask questions, and see what it is like to sit in the classroom, definitely get involved, and have fun. However, keep in mind the school you choose io enroll is where you will plan to spend four years of your life to come out of the university or college you selected to go and get into the work force and find a real job. Life isn't easy however you have to make the most of it and this is the time to have fun. Look for a campus that is appealing to you and you feel like it could be your other home, well not for real but some where comfortable. Get acquainted, participate, gain knowledge, and enjoy would be my advice. College is tough, however it is whatever you make of it and when your all done you will be so proud and your parents too. Concentrate and party a little, but most importantly get your degree and GRADUATE because when your done you have to pay back your loans!

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

The thing I usually brag about the most to my friends is the size of my school, I love it. And also how there is so much help in all areas needed at my campus. Especially with getting a great job after school, internships and volunteer opportunities. I also like the ratio between the students and teachers. As well as the one-on-one time allowed with professors to have a better aquaintance with each teacher individually, that's so nice.
